Can someone please confirm this for me. As I understand it - come June 2012, mobile me will shut down. In order to keep your email address ( .me / .mac ) you will have to upgrade to Lion - and sign up for iCloud. In order to do this you will have to upgrade the a Mac capable of running Lion - i.e. one with the right Intel processor ( Intel Core Duo? ). Is this right? It seems a bit unfair that my girlfriend will have to upgrade her entire kit just to retain her email address - something she can ill-afford to do?
