For the last few months I was waited to buy MacBook pro with lion pre installed but not happen when they ship lion this week. my question is do you think if it is ok to buy MacBook pro with snow loperd pre installed or wait two or more weeks antil they ship it with lion. Also, what benefit w’ll get if I buy MacBook pro with S L and then upgrade or but later lion pre installed Mac.

    Any MacBook Pro you buy from Apple right now will have Lion installed.
    I wouldn’t buy a Mac that comes with SL installed — if some store is still selling them.

    I agree with you Gary. My beef is Quicktime you still have to pay for the upgrade.
    While browsing you will have to pay for some applications,once Lion is fully up and running. I read an article where Steve Job says that the Macs will never go down in price. After Lion has been out for 3yrs they will have another Cat waiting in the wings. When i bought the computer with Snow Leopard on it, you still did not get the Quicktime upgrade.

      Are you talking about old QuickTime 7 Pro? Maybe seek an alternative — that depends on what you use QuickTime 7 Pro for. I use it for a few things, but could easily use QuickTime X for some of them, and programs like MPEG Streamclip for others.
      I bought QuickTime 7 Pro upgrade ONCE — back when I was using Leopard. I didn’t have to re-purchase it again for Snow Leopard. I just used the same serial number code.

    I feel silly asking this question, but … I have a MacBook Pro (about 3 years old) and my OS X is 10.5.8. Is Lion something I buy or will I just be upgraded sometime in the future through a software update? Thanks ….

      You buy it. The proper way is to upgrade to Snow Leopard (should have done 2 years ago) and then use the Mac App Store in Snow Leopard to upgrade to Lion. Each upgrade is $29. Or, you can wait for the USB drive update from Apple to jump from Leopard to Snow Leopard. They should have that in stores this month.
