    Hello everyone! I'm so excited, Tuesday my first Mac (iMac 21,5") is arriving! However, I'd like to know if Lion comes pre-installed with it? I read that BTO iMacs from now on come shipped with Lion, I ordered a Magic Trackpad instead of an Magic Mouse, is that also a BTO? If I go to Order information on the Online Store I see that theres written 'Maatwerkopties' (BTO in Dutch) and then you see my whole configuration (baseline actually, plus Magic Trackpad)... So... If anyone knows it, I'd like to hear :)

    When did it actually ship? It probably will have lion, but it may not it's on the edge of when they started preinstalling lion.

    I ordered it yesterday: Thursday 21st. It said Apple will send it within two businessdays, and that it will arrive Tuesday 26th.

    Then in that case it come with Lion. Or at least I would be very surprised if it didn't.

    The iMac tech specs page has been updated from SL to Lion, so maybe yes? :confused: I still don't think it's a sure thing yet.

    Hello Appeltaart,
    I'm going to order the 27" base config but with Magic Trackpad...
    did you receive yours? Came with Lion and new keyboard?

    Thank you very much.

    I grabbed a 27'' iMac from a local apple store this weekend and it came with snow leopard installed. Didn't take long at all to upgrade to Lion for free through apple's program. My understanding are all online orders now should have Lion installed, in store purchases might still have a few snow leopards for configurations not selling as fast.
