Great, now where is Java 7?

Java 7 will be provided by Oracle, not Apple. Oracle still hasn't finished the version for Mac, although you can download a developer preview (http://jdk7.java.net/macportpreview/).

From --> http://java.com/en/download/faq/java7.xml
Why is Java SE 7 not yet available on java.com?
The new release of Java is first made available to the developers to ensure no major problems are found before we make it available on the java.com website for end users to download the latest version. If you are interested in trying Java SE 7 it can be downloaded from Oracle.com

Is this update for all OSX Lion users? because Software Update is not showing anything!!
Java wasn't included in Lion. It was an add on, installed only if needed by certain programs.

If Software Update doesn't have an update, it is probably because you don't have Java installed at all.

Do you have a specific need to use 10.6.4?

10.6.8 is free and has been out for ages.

I have video playback problems under 10.6.8. And I can't have Genius Bar people hold my computer for a few days while they look at it (I was quoted 4 days).

Since May of this year, I've been working on my theses for graduation and interning at 2 doctors offices. I need the mobility of my laptop (with video playback) for everything that I'm doing.

I'm going to bring it back to a Genius during my winter break.
