Excerpt: I had OSX Lion pre installed on my MacBook 2012 when i bought it at the start of the year. Once installed I had to perform multiple updates from the Apple server which was expected, as is the way with Apple bringing out updates every 5 seconds. The software was very easy to update and the bar at the top has a little apple logo which when clicked displays the model of the MacBook and the software details that it is running. Very handy.
Summary: The worlds most advance desktop operating system just got better with OSX Lion and now OSX Mountail Lion coming this summer just to top things off. Windows 8 to come in 2012 ass well... my prediction from my experience so farr: The change is good, hmmm...just not good enough. It seems as if Microsoft is trying to hard.
Technology advancing even further. It looks as if Microsoft Window's has allot of work to do!

Excerpt: After looking through my Apple orchard empire I suddenly got worried- I suddenly realised that I had completed my Apple collection- including, iMac, Macbook Pro iPad and the iPhone- and a myriad of other Apple Tech. So now what to buy? Well it was then I received a present as a "Get well soon" gift- I couldn't believe my luck when I found it was an Apple iTunes voucher for £25!!!
Summary: I was really looking forward to lion but my late 2010 macbook runs far slower on it. Also it now hangs on the login screen when resuming from sleep.
Pros: The fact that I can now do the most basic of function which is resize a window from any side
Cons: They did not change much. Saying applications like mail changed is nothing to do with the os, it was just released at the same time. It is like saying microsoft released a new outlook therefore its a new version of windows.
Summary: It is vastly superior to Windows 7 which i have to use at work. It's like the super slick sports car thing you want to show off while Microsoft is the tractor in the barn. It is light years ahead of the opposition and the full screen options are a real benefit as is the swipe method on the flat mouse pad. But already it has glitches and hangs with no escape except a reboot despite a 2010 mac mini with 2.6 processors and 4 gig ram.
Pros: It's more like the iPad than a computer, I use this on my 2010 mac mini and it's a massive improvement especially the swipes and the full screen apps.
Cons: Despite 4GB of memory it frequently hangs and has to be rebooted to quit especially if your running two or more programmes.
Summary: All the bumph prior to Lion says you need and intel core duo II mac as a minimum. I've got that and the app store won't let me download it cos it says I don't have enough memory - even with the 2gb recommended. Rubbish. Another sycophantic article about Apple from CNetuk.
