The latest iteration of the Mac OS X Operating System, the Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, is available for purchase in the Mac App Store.
So, after a long wait, the Lion is here. Finally! And yes, one has to pay $29.99 in order to bring the Lion onto the Mac Machine. But the good thing is you get your money’s worth by upgrading to this beautiful Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.
Downloading Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
I’ve been using the beta version of Lion, and I do intend to upgrade my iMac to this stable OS. One thing that is keeping me at bay from downloading Mac OS X Lion is my internet connection. In reality, downloading 3.49GB file should take a couple of days, all thanks to the dodgy internet connection I have.
And, as Apple decided to ditch DVDs, downloading from the Mac App Store is a pain if the internet connection ceases — happens quite often here. Also, I think a lot of users are downloading 10.7 right away, so the chances of getting a better download speed is slim. Anyway, one thing is for sure: I’ll upgrade to this stable 10.7 Lion real soon. Right now? Probably not.
Users, especially those who haven’t tried any version of Lion yet, will be hard-pressed to download and learn the new Mac OS. In my opinion, the UI of Lion is simply brilliant. Apple have taken the best of the iOS and blended this with the Mac OS resulting in an OS which is aesthetically very pleasing. You should try!
Where to Buy the Mac OS X Lion?
Head over to the Mac App Store and search for “OS X Lion.” This OS is housed under the “Productivity” category which is interesting, and the OS rightly deserves to stay there because, really, Mac OS X Lion can do wonders with the use of Expose and Spaces. More on this later.
