Need to know – OS X Lion

Essential info about Mac OS X Lion

Roar power

Apple continues to converge its desktop and mobile operating systems with OS X Lion, adding over 250 new features that it hopes will win over Windows users. It hits the App Store in July priced £20.99.

Feline fine

Three quarters of the computers Apple sells are notebooks so it’s no surprise to find multi-touch front and centre in Lion. New gestures and fluid animations let you interact and control the desktop environment as never before, swiping new full-screen applications and web pages aside and tapping or pinching to zoom.
