Bought a New Mac Recently? Mac OS X 10.7 Lion is a Free Download If So
Did you buy a new Mac between June 6, 2011 and July 20, 2011? If so, don’t grab Lion from the App Store quite yet because you qualify for a free download of Mac OS X Lion, directly from Apple. All you need to do is visit Apple’s Up-To-Date page to claim your copy, just be sure you have your Macs Serial Number, date of purchase, and place & location of purchase ready.
Any Macs bought July 20 won’t need to do this because they’ll come with Lion preinstalled. If you bought a Mac before June 6, well, you’ll just have to buy Lion from the App Store like the rest of us, it’s $29.99 and includes a very generous personal license that will allow you to install Lion on all of your personal machines.
