    Default It's Official: OS X Lion Coming to Mac App Store Tomorrow


    After what seems of an entire month of notes similar to this one (or this one), we've finally got an official word. During the quarterly earnings call this evening, Apple let slip that it's new version of Mac OS X, Lion, will drop tomorrow. It will be exclusively available on the Mac App Store.

    Apple first announced Lion last October while introducing the revamped MacBook Airs (which could see yet another update alongside the software launch), then put it on display again at WWDC a little over a month ago, promising a July release date, and now they've finally locked in a date. After four developer previews and Golden Master release, Lion is ready for primetime. It will cost customers $30. The server edition will cost $50.

    There are new rumors abound that Apple will offer dedicated Lion Servers at their retail locations, so that users can download the software in mere minutes, rather than the chunk of time it takes most people to download 4 GB using their home connections. This will be particularly beneficial to people without a broadband connection. These rumors add on to reports from earlier today, regarding a couple of different internal builds of the software that Apple stores have allegedly received.

    Tomorrow should be an exciting day for Apple, as if today wasn't exciting enough (at least from a financial standpoint).

    Considering the current trend of Macbook Pro's release dates, I assume that there will be no new machines these next couple of months, or do you know otherwise?

    If you don't know then you're running the normal edition and that's all you'll be able to upgrade to. The server edition is for large scale multi-user machines with web server, email server etc.

    If you bought it in the last month you get a free upgrade.

    Apple - OS X Lion - Get up to date.

    I already have it installed in my 27' iMac its awesome but its nice to know I am eligible to receive the free upgrade. Front row looks like it was cut from OSx Lion...never used it anyway.

    Not sure of your view on new is, doesn't matter what computer because they cover all Apple computers bought. Bought in the last 30 days is the time that Apple announced that Lion would be coming out. Everything before June 6th was still up in the air of the Lion release.
