I'm guessing $50 for a single person and $80 for a family pack. What are your guesses and why?

$130 like they've always priced OS's

But wasn't Snow Leopard $40 or something for a single user and $80 for a family pack?

Think I'll throw down a price.
79.99 is my guess. Why? I have no idea

Haha, good enough for me. As long as I'm not paying $200+ for software updates, I'm happy. :)

The standard 129. Remember it has Server stuff in it so it can't be $30 bucks again.

This! And I remember getting Tiger back in the day for about $70ish with my student discount.

$29.00. Also, an Apple store employee told me today, that iCloud will start in the fall and will be free.

29.99 in the app store. I was surprised that iCloud is going to be free.

iClous is a lock-in feature, to keep people from straying to all the new competing music offerings. Pretty clever, I think.

$29!:cool:

You nailed it. ;)

I asked this in April and it was announced at WWDC that Lion would be $29. Cheffy Dave was the only one to guess this. ;)

Just say $30. I know it's a 'thing' to do in America to say .99cents but I rather just round it off to the dollar.

It happens in every country. Annoying as hell. Its either there to look better or sound better, or just for that awkward moment when they realise that YES, yes I would like my 1 penny/cent change back, thank you very much.
