Another Apple’s OS that was announced at the WWDC was the Mac OS X Lion for your Mac computers. The Mac OS X Lion is to launch sometime in July and cost only $29.99 for upgrade from the Snow Leopard.
In the past the upgrade to a newer version of OS X usually cost $129.99. Now, this is $100 cheaper, which is definitely an attraction for us to proceed for an upgrade. I’ll definitely upgrade my MacBook Pro while the OS X Lion is available in July.
The Mac OS X Lion will be available as a download but with a pretty huge file size of 4GB. It’ll be downloadable from Apple’s Mac app store when it launches. And there isn’t a need for reboot after the download and installation.
Top new features of the Lion are multi-touch gestures for your trackpad, full screen apps and AirDrop etc. The multi-touch gestures even allow you to have up to 6 gestures on a multi-touch trackpad. You can even swipe the touchpad with three fingers to reveal Mission Control, scrolling, pinch to zoom and others.
You can go full screen with apps, so you can work and play with less distractions, using every inch of your display. The AirDrop also lets you drag and drop to send and share files wirelessly with other Mac computers. More features of the Lion can be found on Apple website.
