    Lion Any Good?
    I recently bought a mac book and still have snow leopard as the OS. I seen the new update lion and it seems a good price at only 20.99. Only thing is a read a good few reviews saying it was no good because it wont run Microsoft Office. Although i don't use that often, it would be useful to have.

    Will they be fixing that anytime soon?

    What would be the advice on lion? Is it good or a no go?

    Cheers.

    runs office 2011 perfectly fine. 04 isn't an intel app, so it won't run. Neither is the 08 installer.

    So far, I like it. It's snappy. There are UI things I don't like, but they were all readily fixable (new scrolling method etc). And yep.. the new versions would work fine, Apple ditched PPC legacy code on this release of OS.

    absolutely in love with Lion it "looks" the same at first glance like Snow Leopard, but it's a lot better and smoother and there's hidden things here and there .

    If I had to tell you what I think of the Mac compared to the PC - I would say it's brilliant just to prevent a fanboy/girl argument. Because honestly, they're both pretty much the same to me.

    Lion is installed and running just fine on my 2 iMacs. Will be installing it on my Mini and Air probably tomorrow. Only glitch I've found is in 4 finger trackpad setting when also set to 3 finger drag. Have to toggle 4 finger settings back and forth to get it to start working. A minor glitch. Otherwise everything A-OK. Lion seems to be running the OS functions faster. For example Sleep is immediate now whereas it took some time under Snow Leopard.

    Lion is amazing in every aspect. You'll love it once you upgrade. There'll be no regrets!

    Course not In Australia it's on $32 - considering a Windows OS Upgrade costs about $299 here, I think you definitely can't hurt giving it a try.
