My System Specs

Default Formatting an old Macbook Pro (3,1)

Hey all, I'm not much of an Apple user (in fact, I've never used an Apple product in my life outside of the old 1st generation iPods), but my Father has an old Macbook Pro 3.1 (OSX V 10.6.8 / Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 Ghz / 2GB RAM) which is a total mess.

I'd like to format it, but I don't have an OSX cd. Would it be worthwhile for me to simply upgrade to the latest version of OSX (Mountain Lion)? And would doing so allow me to format?

I've heard rumours that Mountain Lion doesn't run particularly well with older laptops, so what are my other options?

I know I've asked a lot of questions, but I'm totally lost when working with an Apple product...
