Mac industry watcher AppleInsider is predicting that Apple will launch Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and new Thunderbolt-equipped MacBook Airs, as early as hursday this week.

The normally reliable site quotes ‘people with proven track records who would be in a position to know as saying that the new product launches are set to occur later this week: “Specifically, one person said the products would be released on Wednesday at 8:30am in the US (Thursday, 1:30am in Australia).”

The Golden Master of Lion was seeded to developers on July 1 in the US, identical to the software that will be released to the general public, so speculation (often wrong) has been rife as to the actual launch date.  Apple has not offered a specific launch date for the operating system, only promising that it will become available on the Mac App Store at some point in July

    Can’t wait, should be great!

  2. Ben says:

    Ive had the GM version for 2 weeks….. Nothing really that exciting about it… It just uses more memory and cpu… There’s a couple bugs in it.

  3. Serge says:

    Disagree. Everything I’ve seen so far –Installation, full screen apps, mission control, switching users, improved sped (looks like I bought a new macbook) – everything is really impressive.
