    That depends on Apple. I suspect if you called them and asked nicely they would send it to you free.

    Officially, you had to buy it on June 6, 2011 or later. If you can get them to give it to you since it was on June 4, 2011...that's the question you have to ask.

    I personally would take my computer back and buy it again just in case...

    i bought my macbook pro on june 3rd and called apple to ask if i was eligible for the free lion upgrade. the rep credited me $30 from the purchase price for the MBP so when loin comes out i can buy it.

    You just bought a computer worth over a grand, just cough up the $29, it's not like the upgrade is expensive.

    I'm cheap too, but I don't feel entitled to anything but a laptop in good working order when buying a MBP. Apple owes me nothing more than what I paid for.

    That they are even accommodating users who bought after june 6th is in itself extraordinary and I think it is a great idea, more power to Apple for building a loyal customer base this way.

    im not saying everybody is entitled to something other than what we paid for.. all Im saying simply asking nicely won't hurt, and worst case is they say no, and run the risk of the buyer returning the computer just to get the free lion upgrade..

    but have you seen other posters here that are even asking how to go about asking for a complimentary gift...

    Or suggest to Apple that unless they give you Lion you'll do just that -- return it and re-buy it. They'll give it to you. I doubt they'll even give you a hard time about it. Just be polite.

    I called apple the lady didnt even know about lion and wouldnt even let me talk to her supervisor >.< so i will call back in july i printed out my receipt and theres no way im returning it and rebuying it because the closest apple store is 150+ miles away. and i spent all of my money on this computer to begin with, im going to college so im going to be broke pretty much all of the time and that free upgrade would be nice of them since i switched to mac osx =) but if i have to i can buy it i have the money now.

    I bought my MBP on the 3rd via Apple UK Edu store, it was CTO (upgraded with extra Ram, SDD, AG screen) and hasn't arrive yet :(. I did some research online and I was told that most likely everything will be ok as I will register the laptop after 6th Jun. since Apple didn't deliver it yet nor added the Applecare I bought

    theres no harm in asking apple if they can do anything for you. if they had said no i still would of bought Loin on my own dime like i did with every other OS apple released.
