    I bought a 13" MPB from the Apple Store Glasgow yesterday - salesman advised that I would get a free upgrade to Lion when it came out. Anyone else heard this and any idea how it works. Apparently Apple will contact me but no idea how.

    At least Lion is only $30 (US), unlike the $130 (US) that Tiger, etc. had.
