Apple's Mac OSX 'Lion' could arrive next Thursday



Apple is expected to launch Mac OSX 10.7 - codenamed "Lion" - as soon as next week, according to reports which say the company has instructed its retail stores to prepare machines for the upgrade by this Sunday.
Machines in the store are being fitted with extra RAM where possible for the upgrade from OSX 10.6 ("Snow Leopard").The upgrade will cost $29.99, or £20.99 in the UK. Lion requires at least 2GB of RAM and an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Xeon processor - meaning it is compatible with Apple computers excepting the Mac mini from late 2006 onwards.
There are also rumours that Apple may launch new versions of its MacBook Air slimline notebook, possibly on Tuesday - when it usually releases hardware - with the software upgrade, which is only being delivered virtually to machines already running 10.6, following on Thursday - the day when Apple usually releases operating system upgrades.
Are you planning on getting OSX Lion or keeping Snow Leopard ?

  6. I use Windows and I'm not really interested in changing, but Lion is pretty competitively priced and it seems pretty interesting.
