I just chatted with an Apple Store chat person on the Apple Store. This is the transcript: * You are chatting with Holly, an Apple Expert Hi, my name is Holly. Welcome to Apple! * Holly: Good afternoon! * You: Hi, if I buy a macbook pro 15" today, will it ship with OSX lion? * Holly: With it just being released today, I cannot make any guarantees that it will. But if not, you will be able to download it for free from the Mac App Store. * So what gives? How can I ensure that I get OSX Lion when I buy a Macbook Pro from the Apple Store online?
