I'm using an older version of Sage (4.5.3) in Ubuntu 10.04. I like it, but I'd like to upgrade to a more recent version. From the command prompt, calling
throws a scary warning at me:
Question: Is there really a significant advantage to building the binaries from source?
I am running a Sony Vaio laptop on 4 2.13 GHz Intel cores. (I can specify more stats if it helps somebody to give me good advice.)

I have never build sage from source. It is useful only if you plan on working on the development of sage or modify the source code. Your notebooks are not stored in sage directory but home. So you can just delete the present version, download sage 4.7 and install the binaries. That should work for most users.
