OS X Lion is out in Australia, and it comes as standard on all Macs from now on. It's a cheap upgrade for anyone with a pre-existing copy of OS X Snow Leopard, costing only $31.99. It's a 4GB file, and Apple is advising users without broadband to bring their computers into an Apple Store to download the software wirelessly. Anyone who can't do this will have to wait for late August when the operating system becomes available in the Apple Store on a USB flash drive — although this carries an expensive extra cost, with the physical package costing $75.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
