Here's a handy site to help calculate how long.

Got mine via 10mbs cable. It took a while (~45 minutes to an hour) - about 1 1/2 - 2 hours total for everything to complete and boot up. I like this delivery method - near instant gratification. cool

Not sure if I like the new, gray, 2D scroll bars though. smirk

Well, then it's a good thing they are going to offer it via Thumb drive!

the company announced today that the new operating system will also be made available on a USB thumb drive beginning next month. The thumb drive option will be priced at $69, compared to $29.99 for Mac App Store distribution.
