Apple As widely anticipated, Apple's new major OSX release is available this morning, download-only, for $29.99 USD in the Mac App Store. There's a quick copy and paste job of the feature list after the jump. Also as expected, there's a new, Sandy Bridge-based Macbook Air. Update: A reader pointed out John Siracusa's Lion review at Ars.

Have to agree with marcp, I find that release quite underwhelming... I love my Snow Leopard (recent convert here), don't get me wrong. But even after reading Ars review I really don't get it as a major upgrade - despite Ars enthusiastic conclusion.

I played with it already.. and wow really, the launchpad... you want to convince me a grid of icons is a major move forward !!?? I obviously did not drink enough KoolAid yet...

PS: I really don't like the idea of doing a partition resize to install ...
