OS X Lion - How To Download

OS X Lion is arriving in the summer, but some of us can’t wait. Luckily for us there is a number of ways to get your hands on OS X Lion before then.

Pirate Bay

While the Pirate Bay may not be the most reliable, or honest, of places to visit; you can still grab OS X Lion via torrent. (Via 9to5)

LEi Mobile

Make a $10 donation to LEi Mobile and they will add you to their list of approved developers. Once you are on the list you will be able to download OS X Lion via The App Store. (Via Cult)

Developer License

Neither of the above approaches are Apple approved but you can get OS X Lion through Apple if you have a developer license. A developer license will set you back a mere $99. You have to jump through a few hoops but the ride is worth your while if you want to get OS X Lion and sleep soundly at night!
