    The price couldn’t be higher than $29.99 since it is already up on the apple Canada site for weeks that it will be out in July and would cost $29.99

    Can someone please explain to me the main differences between Snow Leopard and Lion? I have a mac but I am kind of out of the loop.
    I am also wondering about how time machine backups would transfer over to a new OS when it is downloaded right from the internet. Can someone please explain? Should/would it be effected?
