Hi all,

Excuse my ignorance but I have just changed from a windows PC to a new MB Pro 15'. Unfortunately I bought it before the release of OS X Lion, and now have to upgrade from Snow Leopard.
When I install Lion will all my documents apps etc still be there, or will I need to back them up like you would have to when upgrading a windows OS?

Thanks!

If you install Lion as an upgrade, the yes, your apps ad files will still be there.

However, it's always good to have a backup no matter what because you never know when something could go wrong.
