Hey there!

About to buy an iMac and just wondering if I buy today, will I get a free upgrade to Lion in July? How close to an OS X release do you have to be to get a free upgrade - 30 days? If waiting a few more days gets me a free upgrade, I guess it'll be worth it...

Thanks in advance for your help!

Yes.

As long as you buy after June 6, you get the upgrade.

Great, thanks for the fast help!

It looks like my days as a "PC" user are very limited then :)

Does that apply to refurbished Macs as well?

The Mac OS X Lion Up-To-Date upgrade is available at no additional charge via the Mac App Store to all customers who purchased a qualifying new Mac system from Apple or an Apple Authorized Reseller on or after June 6, 2011. Users must request their Up-To-Date upgrade within 30 days of purchase of their Mac computer. Customers who purchase a qualifying Mac between June 6, 2011 and the date when Lion is available in the Mac App Store will have 30 days from Lion’s official release date to make a request.

I believe it usually applies to refurbs too.
