Thanks. That's what I thought. Apple is not the kind of company to cut corners...I just wanted some verification before I ordered it.

For those of you saying you aren't impressed, has anyone ever really been overly impressed with the "S" model keynotes?

Thanks. Now that you mention it, I realize it doesn't make any sense to have two backups on the same disk. I'll see if I can find a cheap 500 GB external to use as the time machine backup.

As long as it is an intel based mac with a core2duo processor you should be able to install Lion...but it may be too slow for older machines.

I've already maxed out my computer's compatibility with 2 GB of RAM. That's my concern.

If upgrading the RAM was an option I'd do it in a heartbeat.

That said, I've gotta think it'll...
