    I bought my MacBook Pro last 5/21 and it was delivered last week. I saw that people that purchase MBP starting a couple of days ago, will get a voucher for Lion OSX.

    Does anyone think if I call Apple and tell them I'd like a free copy too that they would care? Anyone have experience with this type of request with Apple?

    If you were still in your 14 day return window they might oblige, but I don't think it will happen this late in the game.

    I think it's worth a try to call. I assume you registered your computer already and said you bought it 5/21?

    The free downloads are ONLY for those computers purchased AFTER June 6th. You simply go to the App store and it will allow you to get the free download. Nothing for the Apple store to do about this, it's set in the system. You'll need to return your unit if you want to get a free download. BTW, this info is all per a Apple supervisor I just talked with about this same issue. They (Apple) has to draw the line somewhere, and June 6th is where the line starts....
