    I believe so! I believe that if you need it again you can download it however they may have been thinking that if you'd need it again it would be when on snow leopard to upgrade. So from lion perhaps it just says nope.

    There's a recovery partition as well I notice, I wonder how much is in there.

    For me, I've saved both the upgrade installer and made a usb boot stick for fresh installs. So on one 16GB stick I hope i've got all I need for Lion installs/upgrades

    Yep. Nope.

    Docs seem to indicate that you have to be inet connected when doing a reinstall from the recovery drive. I guess I'll explore tomorrow and see what I can find out.

    Smart you. :thumbsup:

    Unlike me. :thumbsdown:

    Ive put the scroll back to normal for now. I dont want to have to think when I'm moving between machines and operating systems.

    I also miss the up/down arrows on the scroll bars.

    I agree.

    But it's strange how scrolling can be so intuitive on the iPad and iPhone yet so foreign on the OS. :mental:

    I think on the touch stuff we want to flick the screen up whereas with a mouse, we want to grab that scroll bar and pull IT to where the content we want to see is.

    If everything were touch based, different matter

    Im REALLY feeling this "everything will be ios soon" thing from Apple

    You don't get a choice on the type of install. By default, it does an upgrade install and the only way to do a complete clean install is to start with a completely clean disk. Other than that, it's an update install only.

    According to what I've read, you can take your laptop into the Apple Store and do the Lion install there. At least that's what I've heard.

    Tom :)macwave:... it's pretty cool so far...)

    I'm going to stick my mac book air for sale as well to get the new one. Although there's not that much difference, the backlit keyboard is good for me since I'm primarily nocturnal :lol:
