    Sure the swiping and the launch pad, etc is nice and pretty but that feels more like something that should've come as a free upgrade..

    Sell me Lion..whats better besides some (minor) GUI bling-bling?

    shouldn't you answer this before you purchase something? It's one thing not to like what you just paid for, but to be totally clueless about it...

    Short and accurate :cool:

    Honestly, only the 64 bit of iTunes is worth the upgrade IMO. And we will see more and more update that makes app take advantages of the 64 bit architecture. On the long run, it will make native (apple) application a lot faster and more efficient than their 32 counterparts.

    Mate it seems you know about computers as much as I do.. SFA...

    So, for us.. it should be the bling bling that matters...

    If the cool new "gold crucifix" that came out with Lion is not good enough for you (being "minor" upgrade), no amount of selling is gonna help..

    Im not complaining really, theres enough of that here allready :) Im just curious what benefits i get besides the obvious. That 64 bit thing for example was a good point!

    And as far as doing research goes..well if its 29 bucks and steve says "pretty cool huh" im reaching for my credit card. :) actually it cud be 200 bucks and id still buy it blind, but then he would need to throw in "this is really neat" too.

    I wondered the same thing when I bought it, but realize the speed increase in Safari, the 64-bit iTunes update, and the new wallpapers were worth $29 alone. :p

    I just hope the next version of OS (X) is a full update. Tons of new features and a $130 price tag to represent that.

    The people who say that Lion isn't an upgrade are the same people who upgraded from Leopard to Snow Leopard. It doesn't make sense to me.

    You are certainly paying for a much more secure OS than its predecessors. Read up on it ;)
