Update to iCloud, What do I need

Nov 28, 2010
Yes, that is correct, as you need the Mac App Store (MAS) to download Lion, and as the MAS only comes with 10.6.6, you need to buy the Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Upgrade DVD for 29 USD, then upgrade your Mac with it, upgrade via Software Update and download Lion via MAS.
You can then create a bootable installer, if you want.

Or you could just buy the Lion Installation USB flash memory thumb drive from the Apple Online Store for 69 USD.
