    I'm pretty new to Mac, and have a question.

    What is normal procedure when Apple launch a new operating system?
    Will Lion be installed from the day the launch it, on all new computers ordered from Apple's website, or what?

    Thank you:)

    There are usually some models leftover with the old OS still installed, but it doesn't really matter as any computer purchased between now and the release will get a free copy anyways.

    Thank you for your quick answer.
    I'm about to buy a new MacBook Pro. What is normal concerning them?
    If I order it after the launch, I will get a free copy, or is it normal that the install it for you?

    If you're considering getting a White MacBook, i wouldn't. They're about to be refreshed with new models that come with Lion Preinstalled, as well as much better specs.

    I recall when my family got a mac mini right after leopard came out, they included a disk to install it later. I would imagine if you buy a mac now, Apple will give you a redeem code to get it.
