Hi, nice to be here. Upon the Lion release, getting a 21.5" iMac 8GB, along with an iPad 2 WiFi/3G, size TBD. My wife getting the same iPad along with a Mini. We are guessing early Aug as Lion out sometime July and Mini refresh late-July early Aug according to the rumors. And what would Apple be w/o rumors? Had a Oct 2007 era iMac with the first gen of Leopard---always swore I woudn't do the first gen of an OS ever. It froze more times than an Eskimo in January- a disaster, back it went. Got an HP PC. Can lighting strike twice? We hope not.
