I'm thinking of getting a MBP soon, but obviously, I want to have Lion on it. I remember that in previous years, you could buy a Mac right before a new release came out, and they would ship you an upgrade CD when it was released free of charge. So, for example, if it was a month before OS X Snow Leopard came out, you would buy a Mac with Leopard and they would ship you the Snow Leopard upgrade CD a month later. Does anyone know when that'll happen (or if it'll happen) for Lion?

Lots of speculation for this summer. But its only speculation.

Either you purchase now and possibly fork out the cost for lion, or just wait.

Possibly. I wouldn't count on it though, as it most likely won't be effective until they announce when Lion is actually coming out. Plus, Lion will be more than $30, so that might be a little less likely.
