    After Lion has become available will it come pre installed on every new apple product or just on the one that are refreshed after that point.

    If the mac was produced after Lion is released then it will have it preinstalled.

    From Apple.com, the day it's released. In stores, it will take a while for old inventory to deplete. In the past, Apple dropped in DVDs with the new OS, now I guess you'll get a Mac App Store code.

    My point to the OP was after the release, Apple will have Lion on every Mac it sells. I am a little confused by what the OP is asking. Apple won't install a previous version of a OS on a system it sells. It will always have the current copy at the time of manufacture, minus any that have already been produced.

    Thank you, I get what you mean. I got confused.


    In conclusion: (apple will ship all new make with a code or disk to instal Lion, but the Mac's that apple are making will be pre-installed with Lion.)

    Yes, past a certain point in July every mac will have Lion. There will be a gap of those just made and the release of the new OS.
