Mac OS X Lion is almost here that we hear its roar coming upon us! Some are saying it might even arrive later this week! Are you ready?

At this month's meeting, we'll spend a considerable amount of time reviewing all the things you can do to prepare for Mac OS X Lion. 

Does your computer meet the minimum requirements and is your Mac even capable of running Lion? 

What apps do you have that might need to be upgraded to work with Lion? 

Are there apps you use that will no longer work with Lion? 

What alternatives are out there? 

How do you backup your system prior to upgrading?

What's the best way to upgrade?

What if you need to upgrade more than one computer?

We'll talk about all this and more as this will probably be our last meeting before Lion will be released.

Of course, we'll also go over some current events in the Mac world as well as review some cool Mac & iOS apps and leave some time for Q&A.

Our meeting this month will be at the same location as last month. We thank Jan Chesne for allowing us to use the rec room at her townhome.

Address: 2700 Pearl St. in Santa Monica (Pearl & 27th). 

Directions: 27th St. going south from Pico ends in the entrance to the complex (In front it says Village Park Townhomes).  Go in the entrance, turn right, go over 2 speed bumps (street curves to the left) and park in the parking spaces or anywhere along the road where it doesn't say "No parking."  The rec room is across the road from the parking spaces and slightly south.  The rec room is off Unit 60 (please don't bother any of the residents).
