    I am running Leopard on a iMac purchased in Aug 2008 - 2GB Memory and 2.4 GHz Processor and am hoping to upgrade to Lion, however I see that you can only purchase it through MacApp store which requires SnowLeopard.

    Will this mean I have to pay for both upgrades to get Lion?

    Thanks

    Given that the app store is for Snow Lion only, and apple has not communicated whether they'll eventually offer dvds. I think you will need to upgrade to SL before download 10.7

    Personally, I'll not be buying it as I prefer to have physical media in case something happens to my HD and I need to reinstall.
