Hey, so I'm about to buy my first Mac(yey!). But the thing is that not only a MacBook pro 13 base model costs me 1800$ (I'm from Romania btw), but neither of them come with OS X Lion preinstalled. Q :Should I buy a snow leopard one or wait for the new MacBook pro models that may be out in the early 2012? Q2: Should I buy a Mac at all? Does it worth it? I'm going to college next year (probably in the UK-computer science) and I just wanna have a computer that gives me no headaches, that doesn't lag at all and so on... I want one that just "works". I would also like have a single device to sync my Apple products with ( I currently have s Sony Vaio windows 7 and I keep losing my iTunes music for some reason). Apple products that I currently own: iPad 2, iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 3G, iPod nano 3rd gen. Q3: which is better? Buying a MacBook pro with lion preinstalled or snow leopard and then upgrade for free to lion? Also, does lion have any lag whatsoever? Q4: will i lose any feaures of Lion if I upgrade instead of getting it preinstalled? Features like recovery hd or stuff like that? Cheers!
