    Tim Cook announced that Mountain Lion will be available next month, and it seems that the new Airs will begin shipping in 3 weeks here in Korea. Should I get the Air while Lion is still pre-installed, or should I wait until Mountain Lion is installed by default?

    I just ordered a new one today and confirmed with Apple that I get a free upgrade to ML when it is released.

    Not to mention a $100 app store gift card free with my order.....

    You get it for free, you might as well get it now.

    If you need it now, buy it now. If not, wait. Either way, the hardware wil remain the same. Upgrading the OS isn't a big deal and easy to do.

    Free upgrade? Yeah, might as well preorder it and get it before the end of June. Thanks a lot!
