3 year old (non 'pro') macbook here, 5GB & 7200rpm drive, avg uptime is 30+days or whatever the time between service packs is. No issues at all.

Came with Leopard, upgraded to Snow Leopard (not a fresh install) and them app store upgrade to Lion

machine is snappy as, unlike my coworker who has a brand new quad core i7 w/ 256GB SSD that runs Lion like a dog. no idea why, but my humble old macbook is faster in every way than his shiny new mac mini
