    Hey guys.

    I got lion on my macbook pro atm. but i would like to explore the oppetuneties in the snow leopard due to the removal of the powerPC in the lion. so my question is is there anyway that i can go from my lion operating system to snow leopard WITH the possibility of going back to lion if snow leopard sucks. i have an external device (extern harddrive) in my possetion if that help my couse.

    thanks

    If your Mac came with Lion, then you're stuck with Lion. You can't install a previous OS.

    No, you just hold down option on boot and choose the lion recovery disk...reinstall from there.
