good to know, thanks for the update that comes directly from someone who actually uses it. I will install Lion on one machine at a time. This way I can see what I like and don't like, and if it cause any problems with anything. $90 bucks to do all three computer is well, CHEAP! Chew on that Microsoft.

I believe it is $30 to do all 3 computers. Like the rest of the software on the App Store, you buy it once and use it on all your computers with the same account. At least that seems to be what I've been reading.

That's what I've been reading too, should only be $30, it's licensed the same as other mac app store apps so you can install it on all the computers you own. That said I would check out the procedures Apple as published for corporate IT department deployment as from what I've read a little bit of pre-planning could save you having to download a 4GB file 2 additional times (not an issue if you have unlimited internet, but could easily be $30 in overages on some plans...
My understanding is it involves burning a copy of the installer for the other computers BEFORE you install in on the one you download it on. I've yet to actually make the move though so can't really be sure.
Let me quickly get this out of the way. Yesterday I told you that I was running a beta of the new Mac OS X Lion and how much I love it and what a great upgrade it is. It is a genuine advancement and they've incorporated so much of the great aspects of the mobile operating systems on the iPhone and the iPad over to the computer, either your tower or your laptop or what have you. Last night I took the plunge, and I installed the beta of the new iOS 5, the new mobile operating system upgrade on an iPad. I didn't do it on an iPhone yet but I've got a number of iPads. I had a couple I can experiment with. Folks, I'm like a pig in slop with this. I was up 'til two in the morning playing with this. I absolutely love it, and I love sharing my passions with you. I've done it for 23 years. It will be 23 years on August 1st, with just a month away, 23rd anniversary.
They don't have it all working, not all aspects of it are working, but the wireless sync, if you're familiar with this, if you have an iPhone or an iPad, you know that you have to connect to your computer via iTunes to sync it, to upgrade it. No more. As long you plug in your unit, your iPad, iPhone, has to be plugged into power. Once that happens it just automatically syncs to iTunes on your computer, whatever computer you're mated to, it just happens, whatever apps you've purchased on your device end up being synced to the computer and Vice versa. That's just one thing. They've got tabs now in the Safari browser. They brought over some really cool things in the mail app. Notifications. iCloud, it's there, but there's not a whole lot of iCloud they've hooked up yet and is working, but it's there for a couple of things. It's just boggling my mind how great that company is and how far ahead of everybody else they are.
