how do I buy lion?

We have been given an apply mac, but the previous owner wiped everything including the os. Reinstalling requires the apple ID of the original owner. How do we purchase M. Lion and reinstall?

  • Lion is no longer sold boxed in the Apple Stores - you have to buy it at You will then receive info via email about how to download and install it on a Mac.
