I'm about to venture in to the world of MBP for the first time. I've been a Windows user since 1993 so it's a whole new world. Just love my iPad, iPhone and iPods and this is the next logical step for me. I picked up a 13" i7 today at Best Buy - Open box for $1399. Same as new at Apple Store with student pricing, but did it at Best Buy for reward zone points. My questions right now are this... with Lion coming out will I have to pay for the OS upgrade or will Apple give it free within a certain purchase time frame like PC makers usually do? Not even sure when Lion is scheduled to be released but saw sometime this summer. Also, how easy is it for someone to do the ram upgrade themselves? My husband is an IT guy (Windows of course) and very capable at hardware upgrades... is this something he can do for me? Is a hard drive upgrade out of the question down the line? Home installed of course? Just not sure with the unibody. Very excited to venture into the world of Mac, but not sure if I should wait or keep the system I bought today. Thanks for your patience with this newbie!
