Installing Lion: What you need to know
Posted 20 July 2011 - 08:52 AM
I don't wish to debate whether this is effective or even necessary, but I haven't heard this item addressed anywhere and before I buy a new Mac with Lion installed, I must be assured that this is possible.
EDIT: Found the answer in "Hands on with Lion Recovery". You guys are quick.

1.) In Google Chrome two finger swipes to go back and forth on webpages no longer work.
2.) Clamshell mode is well, not really useful anymore. In Snow Leopard, I'd go about putting the Macbook Pro to sleep, then wake it with the Apple Wireless Keyboard, and viola! Screen is only on the external display, I usually open the lid of my MBP to help keep it cool, but now in Lion as soon as I open the Lid, the screen comes back on, which is not what I want.

I'm surprised Apple doesn't deliver ALL updates through Software Update ( i.e. MAS too ). Sure is much simpler for the user.

A simple question ( i think).
I'm running Snow Leopard ( all up to date), i've downloaded Lion, and it's ready to install, my question is this.
Can i leave everything on my Mac were they are, documents, photo's, music etc or do i need to save every thing to a external disc. i'm running time machine (of course)
And will i need to reinstall all my apps???
Many thanks for your time

it states near the end:
"Mac OS X Lion is available as a $29.99 upgrade for people with the latest version of the Snow Leopard operating system. It will be available at Apple Stores in August for $69.99."
I wonder if this is true about retail purchases or if they just got it wrong?
