    I would prefer it for free, though. If not, then yes, $29 isn't that bad. However, free is better.

    June 6 is the cutoff date

    I can't find the apple.com proof right now, but Macs purchased after June 6 will get the Lion update for free.

    It should be a free upgrade but as it's now a download, rather than a disc, you should ask when you buy the mac. In the old days, you just paid the P&P and supplied a proof of purchase.


    Cheers, Macjim.

    Hi my advise/opinion and current experience with apple and the new imac 27" is dont buy one and if you have one don't turn it on because it will get contaminated if you use it, make sure you have apple care because you will need that to cover the 8 or 9 new screens you will probably need over the 3 year course, or sell it as quick as possible and cut your loses.

    It seems that dust inside the LCD and on the backlights is a widespread problem. From the thousands of posts on Apple Support and the numerous forums YouTube videos, this is a design defect!

    There seems to be no solution as apple where unwilling to help and blamed the grey smudge marks on environmental issues and my fault because i use my mac in my house, When i asked if i paid for a new screen would it be fixed or will it happen again, Apples response was we can't guarantee it won't. The only solution i am now left with, is to follow this link below and pry open the LCD and directly clean the insides and backlights. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthre...1#post11976152

    I will be opening my LCD and wiping away the dust that has leaked inside the sealed LCD display
    I will video document my repair and see apple in the small claims court

    Will keep you posted
