    You pay for them, Mick. Kind of like the difference between XP and Win 7.
    Except this one is priced at a whole $29.99. :D

    Tom :)macwave:... cheap at twice the price.)

    When you do, just be prepared for a lllloooonnnnngggg download. This is taking a whole bunch of time. [​IMG]

    Admittedly, that's probably because they're being assaulted with buyers.

    yeah it's coming down at 1.5MB/s though which isnt too bad! and hopefully with the usb stick it's a single download for all the machines

    $30 wow thats cheap.

    question!! are the downloads, upgrades or full blown new operating systems? if upgrades are they like the windows upgrades that leave lots of the old OS in place?
    i always do a clean install rather than an upgrade as i dont want any of the old OS in a new build

    Prior to this upgrade, you could do it pretty much any way you wanted. Upgrade install, clean install, whatever. Since this one is coming over the wire rather than on physical media, I'm not sure how it's going to operate. Apple has announced this morning that if you want the upgrade on physical media, it'll be available in the Apple store in August on a USB stick for $69.99.

    Once my download finishes, I'll let you know what options are available.

    For anyone else who's interested in what this is all about, here's a review of the new Mac OS that we're talking about:

    Well... I'm now aboard Lion! :D

    Upgrade went perfectly. No problems at all. Although I didn't have any option this time on the type of install I wanted to do. Just had to let it do it's thing. All seems to have worked just fine however.

    Now, I've just got to get used to some new stuff...

    Interesting... :brightidea:

    I should have done the same. It appears that I've now lost that option. The Lion installer is no more once the upgrade is complete. Or so it appear.

    yeah once installed it deletes the install file but of course it's freely downloadable again (just takes time!)

    Downloadable how? Through the app store? I haven't found how to do that yet. Course, I haven't looked either.
