Hi. I got my MacBook Pro 13 for Christmas of 2010, and it was purchased by my mother just a few days before Christmas at the Apple Store in Baton Rouge, LA.

My question is: Is there any way that I can upgrade to OS Lion for free since my MacBook was purchased so close to the release of OS Lion?

Thanks.

No. It wasn't purchased close to the release of Lion.

No one even knows for sure when Lion will be released yet except a very loose "sometime in the summer of 2011"... But no, you won't get it for free. When it's out, the only way to get it free as far as I know, will be to buy another Mac after it's released. Then it's costing you a few thousand dollars :p The upgrade discs won't be too bad, just save a little now, by then you'll have it ready :)

No. You aren't entitled to anything. Besides, define "close", Lion is still months out from being released.

Oh..My bad! I thought OS Lion was already released!

Woops. If that's the case, I'll just buy it later on.

Even if it was your Mac was not bought close to release. Historically that has normally meant within 4 weeks of release.

So far just the developer preview has been released :)
