Apple’s newest operating system, Lion, is now available for download for just $30 on the Mac App Store. Run Software update on your computer and prepare your computer for the upgrade. If you’re running Time Machine on an external hard-drive now would be the time to back up. Once that’s done, go to the Mac App Store and get yourself Lion.
Lion includes apps such as Facetime for video conferencing, LaunchPad for getting to your applications in an iPad-esque way, and Mission Control, Apple’s new take on their old Exposé and Spaces ideas. With full screen applications and a handful more of Apple’s gesture controls, along with auto saving, inverted scrolling, and Versions, and in total about 250 new updates, thirty dollars is a bargain. Go ahead and upgrade and explore the new OS!
