Thread: New MacBooks, default Lion?
06-09-2011, 08:24 AM #1New MacBooks, default Lion?
Sorry if someone has previously posted this topic, but I couldnt find it anywhere.
I am planning to buy a 13" MBP 2011 in about 3 months (after I got home. I am in Germany now and MBPs are ridiculously expensive here). So now that Lion is about to come out in July, will the new MacBooks afterwards get the OSX Lion by default, or it would be still in Snow Leopard and we have to upgrade through Mac AppStore?

Once it is released, expect a bit of a delay as older stock gets run through (in stores). After that, you should see Lion installed by default. There is a rebate now for those who buy a computer starting June 6 through when Lion is released.MBP 17" 2011, 2.3GHz Intel Quad-Core i7, 8GB RAM, AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1GB RAM

Thanks all for the quick answer. That's relieving. I barely can wait actually to buy it. But if it is worth it to wait 'til Lion comes, then I will
Two questions though:
1. If i buy it know (means I got the Snow Leopard), then how if later on I want to reformat my MBP or reinstall my OS (say that I have upgraded to Lion)? Lion wont be available in discs, I suppose?
2. Seriously there's a rebate?? Do you know how much and is it only in the Apple store?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
