Got a kick out of this and just had to share.

I just bought a 13" 2011 MBA, and before I left the store, the blue-shirted kid selling me the computer said that I would need to purchase a Lion upgrade since the new MBA's didn't come with Lion. (of course it did come with it)

If you worked at the store and sold these things all day long, wouldn't you try to take time to familiarize yourself with the products? I mean, there were probably 20 or so people buying MBA's in there when I was there, so you know this blue-shirt had to have sold a couple since Wednesday. Also, all demo units were running Lion, but he told me that the computers on display were also not on Lion, and still had to be upgraded. :confused:

They all had Lion installed, and yes, my MBA had it as well. It just never ceases to amaze me how little some of the salespeople in retail outlets know (or don't know) about their products.

Well why didn't you tell him that Lion was on it and the demo units too? What did you say in response?

Be a little more humble, dude. Honestly, you should have just taken the situation more gracefully and with a grain of salt.

I wish they came with Snow Leopard installed.

I have a free Lion upgrade...dunno if I'm even going to use it.

Do it, I love Lion so far. But I don't have any compatibility issues with PowerPC apps, as I don't really need any of the ones I had previously installed. That would be the only thing holding me back. If you don't have to pay for it why not?

This was mentioned after I bought the computer, while I was about to leave. He mentioned Lion on this computer, and I said "oh, really? ok." and his response was that "the demo units still need to be upgraded to lion too".

A nod of my head, and we were out the door.

um, ok. Not quite sure where I needed to be more humble? I didn't poke at him, or tell him he was wrong, off base, etc, in fact, I just responded as "oh, really? ok." and left.
