I absolutely love it. I honestly didn't think I would use any of the new features until I tried them. All I can say is wow. The combination of the new gestures, full screen apps and mission control makes multitasking a breeze. Even launchpad which I initially thought was stupid and redundant I have found to be extremely useful. With a simple gesture I have access to all of my applications. Furthermore the fact that every time I start my macbook it opens all my previous windows exactly where I left them is really convenient. As far as I am concerned Lion is well worth the $30.
Its good to hear that it runs ok on Core i5, im wondering how it fares on older Core 2 Duos. I switched from OSX 10.6 to Windows 7 on my machine and its blazing fast. It will take alot to convince me to go to 10.7 now.
