    I assume you mean your OS X is 10.5.8.
    Yes, you first need to install Snow Leopard, which is required for access to the Mac App Store, where you can download Lion.

    !0.8.5!!??

    Obviously Einstein was wrong about time travel. You are probably about a year in the future, since the rest of us only have 10.7.3 if we have the latest Lion update.

    I want in on that time machine!! :rolleyes: :D :D

    If you have 10.6.5 go to :apple: > Software Update and update to 10.6.8, as you already have Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, but you need 10.6.6 at least to use the Mac App Store (MAS).

    To find out what Mac OS X version you run, click :apple: > About This Mac:

    That's the price, it's less than $50 as the prerequisite for Lion is Snow Leopard. Nobody is forcing you to update.

    For the humor impaired among us, that was a minor attempt at humor...as in a little good natured teasing.

    As if that was not entirely clear in the text, I added 3 smilies to ensure that I would not be misunderstood.

    Apparently I failed...

    Lighten up a tad, alanak.

    Thanks and it is totally fine, i didn't take it serious at all. I just stocked with my computer since I dont wanna pay extra to buy sl because i want to buy Lion after that. its crazy.
    I download sl but the its included .exe files, so it didn't work either :(
    bythe way I made mistake again my OX is 10.5.8 :)

    .exe files are Windows executables and will not work on Mac OS X, maybe you have got a Hackintosh version.
    Why do you want/need Mac OS X 10.7 Lion? If so, you have to spend the money or ask somewhere else for help, as this forum does not allow helping you pirate software.

    Then you need Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard first.

    Just pretend Lion is $49 still cheap for an OS.

    What is it in Lion that you need?

    Though it is 58 USD, which is still cheap for one OS, and especially for two OS versions.

    I was using the OPs own pricing as a guide. But yes it $29 + $29. When ML comes out it'll be yet another $29 :)
