So I'm getting a new MBP next week, but I'm really confused right now about Lion. From what I understand these new MBPs come with Lion pre-installed on a separate little partition? Am I eligible for a free Lion download from Mac App Store too? I would prefer to first erase the entire HDD, then do a fresh install of Lion from a USB/DVD, but to do that I assume I'd first need to install SL and then download it from Mac App Store and then make a boot disk on my USB? In any case, I might be replacing the stock HDD with an SSD, which will also be my boot drive on MBP, so I'd like to install Lion on the SSD later on. In that case I'd need Lion on a USB or DVD to boot from it..... So what's the deal really with these new MBPs?
