    I couldn't find anyone commenting if Lion is coming pre-installed on in-store iMacs in Apple Stores--anyone know?
    Thanks!

    The Mac Life store in our area is selling new units with "Lion" installed. Can't really say about others.

    I went to an Apple store in England yesterday and all their display macs had Lion running.

    I don't get why all machines don't come with lion now. Why are the still shipping brand new machines with sl on them?

    Because they're sealed in a box and paranoid people would think it was used if the seal was broken.

    The Macs that are open and on the floor all have Lion. However, if they go back and get one from the stock room, there's a chance it will have been there since before Lion was available. In that case you'd get a free upgrade.

    No new Mac is leaving the factory without Lion preinstalled, but you can't change the systems that were shipped to retailers before Lion was actually released. For those, Apple has the up-to-date program.
