Yes, I saw that somewhere.

So far it looks like download and auto-install only, no DVD version and not even a .dmg to burn to your own... at 4GB a pop I might stick with Snow Leopard crazy

I would hope that there's an Install app that you download and double click on? perhaps that will be the 4GB file.

It's not clear at the moment, but from the odd bits I've seen it auto-installs and sets up a recovery partition for use if things go pear-shaped.

If you want to install it on another Mac you download again and install on that frown

Apart from the damage it'll do to download allowances, if you need to start with a clean install for any reason how long does it take to d/l 4GB compared to mounting a DVD?

Not happy about this one...

That's around 15 mins per Mac at full speed for my connection (4.6MBps). As I'm unlimited the 8GB for the iMac and MBP aren't a problem. It would be better if it did download as an installer though.

I intend to try it on the MBP first and then put it on the iMac, if it is ok.

It's not a major part of my download allowance and I'm on FTTC too, so the time isn't really a major problem.

But it's still a lot longer than shoving a DVD in the slot tongue
