    Hey! Who's excited that Lion is out tomorrow!?

    I bought my macbook pro on June 7, so by what says, im good for a free copy within 30days, but my question is:

    when i get my free copy, do i have to update right away or can i just download it and let it sit on my desktop until ive read enough reviews of it and know im not going to have to deal with silly bugs?

    When you download through the App Store, you do not have to run the installation right away. My guess is the up to date program will probably give you a code you will redeem on the App Store, so the process will be no different than if you purchased it.

    You can download it and not install it.
