    I do not appear to have received the fabled USB recovery key for Mac OS X with my MBA 13 Ultimate. Is this something I have to apply for? I guess if I need to do a fresh install I can always hook up an external drive and use my retail copy of Snow Leopard but it's a bit annoying.

    You should get the key with the mba. Call apple and ask them to send you one

    It should be in the "Everything else" box (I think, it may be in the "Everything Mac" box). One of those two should have it in there packaged in cardboard. If not then definitely call.
