You Can Download OS X Lion Right Now

Illustration for article titled You Can Download OS X Lion Right Now

Although it's (weirdly?) not a "featured app," OS X Lion is indeed now available for download from the Mac App Store. The 3.5GB download will cost you $30, and upgrades your Mac with over 250 new features—some of which you may be just as happy without.


Update: Okay, now it's the featured app. Can't miss it. Giant banner on the front door, the one with a Lion on it. And here I was worried Apple was selling themselves short! [Mac App Store]



I'm still trying to figure out if there's any reason to get this if I don't have a magic trackpad or mouse (using generic wireless mouse and keyboard with my mini). Seems like most of the cool features are tied into the multitouch gestures. New mail app is tempting, but that doesn't seem like a good reason to drop $30. Any input from early downloaders/devs using the betas?
