So, if a developer already has a GM copy of Lion on his/her Mac, do they have to pay the $30 to be legit in Apple's eyes or are they already set (because they are a developer)?
First and foremost, I would like to thank you for your reply. It is much appreciated. So, if I understand you correctly, I would be obligated to transfer a copy of the Lion image with the machine if I sold it to the person with Lion already installed? I personally feel that would be the right thing to do, but am I actually obligated? Maybe what you're saying is, according to this SCOTUS precedent, I would be legally obligated to no longer have a copy of the OS in my...
Does anyone know how this scenario will work in the near future? It's one I've been mulling over for several days now. I have a mid-2009 MacBook Pro (that came with Snow Leopard as the pre-installed OS) that I might sell soon and replace with a mid-2011 MacBook Air. In the meantime, I plan to upgrade the MacBook Pro to Lion. When I sell it, I plan to format/restore it for the next owner (of course). I would like to restore it with Lion for the new owner, as this would...

You know, this whole "all glass" architecture is pretty remarkable and attractive and all... until an earthquake of decent magnitude hits New York. Then I bet the resulting damage and injuries will change people's minds real quick-like! \
Well, polite is something that you definitely were not. True, you don't have to be polite, but that can lead to others assuming that you're not a very nice person in general. Of course, that's your prerogative if you don't care about what other people think of you.
Wow. Aren't you just an effing old-school Apple hero in a world of new Apple dimwits? I've been using Apple's computers for many years (back to the Bell & Howell model Apple II) and more recently some of the very first iOS products. However, in spite of that I would never come at anyone from the angle that you just did - because it's assuming, self-righteous and contemptible. Furthermore, just so you know, it's not being "frugal" when you're just searching for value in a...
"$100 is not going to sway anyone on the fence about buying one." You're right. Especially when it's not even *really* $100 and you're being limited on how it has to be spent. This is more about Apple's bottom line than giving the customer anything of real value.
While I understand that Apple is not obligated to throw in *any* freebies with a Mac purchase, I still find the new $100 App Store gift card extremely lame in comparison to the free iPod of past promotions. I love Apple and their products, but Apple seems to be getting less and less generous with every passing year. It's all about how much money they can squeeze out of their potential customers as opposed to offering unmatched value to their customers' purchases. From a...
