I am still about another year or longer from a laptop upgrade.

Oh, yes. I've plugged in my mighty mouse to my laptop (just a few times to test things) and it works fine. You just won't be able to use the gestures.

If you like arcane commands, I know of a computer manufacture that makes a computer that uses "control-alt-delete" to access the "Start" menu in order to stop the computer. Years ago I left this companies products behind for Apple products because of their ease of use.

It feels different from the get go...
I think you need to erase the "With the release of Lion, Mac users can get near-instant gratification." line. In reality this is not true, maybe for less than 1% of users that have access to high-bandwidths and that have not issues with the install or that have a newer model of computer, or that have Snow Leopard installed.
I believe that many users could go to a retail store but the CD, if it were available, go out for a nice dinner, come back install Lion, and it would be faster than waiting for their Lion update to be downloaded.
