    Wonder if this applies only to new Macs or refurbished too.
    64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

    Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

    Since refurbs ship with the latest OS and have the same warranty as new, I would suspect this would apply to them as well . . . only a guess.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    well, my iMac is "newish". It's only 4 months old... Justa baby.

    I know, June 6 is the date, you buy a computer on June 5th,
    it's considered as OLD, outdated, a dinosaur...

    Even with this option to upgrade, I've still told my parents to wait for 10.7 to actually be released so they don't have to deal with learning 10.6 only to immediately have to learn 10.7. I'm very jealous of them, as they are going to be buying a 27" iMac i7 and a 17" MacBook Pro to replace their G4 tower and PowerBook G3 as soon as 10.7 is out.

    Well, it only makes sense they offer Lion to Macs purchased on or after the date that Lion is announced.
    Anything purchased before June 6 is not considered outdated. It just means you have to pay the $29.99 for Lion. Big deal, it's just as good and the same as a Mac purchased after June 6. The only difference is if you're paying for Lion.

    Edit - Anyone have any idea how big a download Lion would be please?

    I have downloaded Linux Distros before, so it would be possible - although it took overnight for those

    I know! That's how my dad does it, though. Buy the nicest/fastest (within reason) and use them for a long, long time.

    None of you should feel bad as for $29 you can have Lion . . . . . Dont be upset just enjoy your new Mac. Feel for the people that will have to upgrade there Mac if they want the latest and greatest . . . . . . Now that would be a downer . . . .
