Mac OS X v10.7 “Lion” was released on July 20, 2011. It includes support for the Mac App Store, and brings many other developments made in Apple’s iOS, such as an easily-navigable display of installed applications, to the Mac. Changes made to the GUI (Graphical User Interface) include the Launchpad (similar to the home screen of iOS devices), auto-hiding scrollbars that only appear when they are being used, and Mission Control, which unifies Exposé, Spaces, Dashboard, and full-screen applications within a single interface. Apple also made changes to applications: they resume in the same state as they were before they were closed (similar to iOS). In addition to this, documents auto-save by default so users don’t have to worry about manually managing their documents.

System Requirements:
Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Xeon processor, 2 GB of RAM, 7 GB of disk space, and Mac OS X v10.6.6 or later (v10.6.8 recommended)
