Apple releases OS X Lion, updates the Mac mini and MacBook Air



screen_shot_2011-07-20_at_9.00.31_am.pngApple has released the OS X Lion update this morning as a $29.99 download for Snow Leopard users through the App Store. This is the first time a major update will be distributed through the App Store only with no boxed version planned for their retail stores. I'm downloading Lion now and will be installing and testing it today to give you a report on the new features, so stay tuned for that.

Apple also announced a refresh for the MacBook Air and Mac mini lines, with faster speeds and new features. Both are available for ordering online now and I will be sorting through the specs to bring you the highlights on both later today.
