My macbook pro is running 10.6.8. I am trying to set up icloud but there is no icloud icon in my system preferences. I am told that I need a later version of OS X - 10.7.2 I think but software update tells me that there are no updates available for my computer. When I try to download the update from the apple store site I am told that I need to be running 10.7.1 first so I download this but it won't install, it tells me I need to be running 10.7 first but I can't find 10.7 anywhere. What's up?

10.7 Lion is only available from the Mac APP Store or on USB direct from Apple.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
