Apple Now Selling OS X Lion/Mountain Lion Content Codes On Web Site for Older Macs
Apple just released OS X Mavericks this week, and those with older Macs that don’t support OS X Mavericks will find that OS X Mavericks is the only available option in the Mac App Store. Fortunately, for those using older Macs that don't support OS X Mavericks that want to upgrade to the latest compatible operating system, Apple is now offering OS X Lion and OS X Mountain Lion online from their Web site.
The user ultimately gets to choose the operating system version that they want to download and install on their older system, but unlike OS X Mavericks, Apple is still charging $19.99 each for both the OS X Lion and OS X Mountain Lion upgrades from their Web site.
What the user actually gets for the $19.99 charge is a content code in an e-mail that can be used for the upgrade. The e-mail can take up to 1 business day, or even longer in some cases, to receive after payment. The content code can be used in the Mac App Store to initiate the download of the operating system the user chose.
If you have an OS X Mavericks-capable machine, we would recommend upgrading to OS X Mavericks, as it’s free and adds all of the features OS X Lion and OS X Mountain Lion do, and more. These downloads on Apple's Web site are intended for older machines that OS X Mavericks does not support.

Um... why? Aren't Snow Leopard machines compatible? I mean, who would choose a paid upgrade over a free one, especially if it's Lion?

Let's talk/touch on how it's plagued with bugs. Mavericks is the worst OS to date IMHO.

I like where apple is going with mavericks, but like iOS 7. It was released too soon.

My white 13 MacBook 4,1 can't. I think the video card was not good enough for Mountain Lion and thus Mavericks. But I can goto Lion but I don't think its worth it it sounds like I'm better off on Snow Leopard anyway
