    As per the title, I want to confirm if you have lion in the MAS under the purchased tab. I need to check if I am not going mad.

    Damn it. Thanks for that. If you option/alt click on it, can you download it again?

    Mine has disappeared and I suspect it's due to ML Developer preview.

    It does not show for me. My 2011 MBA came with Lion. I did not purchase it to upgrade my Mac. So the App Store could not have a record of me having purchased it. I assume it would be the same for the 2012's.

    I can confirm that Lion does not appear on the App Store if you only acquired it via a new Mac. Yours did not "disappear".

    If you wish to reinstall Lion, you must do it via recovery mode. This is still possible even if you have installed Mountain Lion preview.

    Thank you for saving my sanity. I know it's possible; I just needed to check this. ML is on a separate partition anyway.
