if it's not too much trouble, at the top of your head does my spec seem feasible :?

i7 920
asus pdtd deluxe
asus eah4870 1gb

i did a quick search earlier on insanelymac and .. yeah, LOL :X


i've two mbps up to date (first gen unibody and '10 model) and i've to say, the only reason i'd need windows now are for the occasional mmo binges. which my '10 could handle but i do NOT like the way the fan makes a lift off sound when im running windows on it lol :X

thanks for the reply wiraone, i'll take a look at it soon smile.gif

..once i figure out how to make a lion bootable disc. lol


edit*

this might be a no brainer, but since there are no physical discs for lion (afaik), if i were to get a snow leopard disc from the apple store would i get the lion upgrade for free ._o?

because even if i make a bootable disc of lion using my mbp, the copy would be.. "affiliated" to my mbp, ...right?

*froths*

Users who do not have broadband access at home, work or school can download Lion at Apple retail stores and later this August, Lion will be made available on a USB thumb drive through the Apple StoreĀ® (www.apple.com) for $69 (US).
