And I am brand new to Macs and very nervous. It is a refurbished macbook pro 13" standard specs June 2012. It will come with Lion. Since I am so afraid I will screw this up with ths first time use, I would like to chek the order of the steps I plan: Go thru setup and establish network connection Get redemption code for upgrade Get from Mac App Store and hit install My question is - should I check in the Apple Menu to see if there are any updates (software?) there before I start the Mountain Liin upgrade, should I check there after a successful (praying there) install or will the ML upgrade take care of all necessary ugrades, all in one so to speak. Thank you for any help you can give this non tech newbie. I do plan on getting some type of device very soon for backup.
