Have a late 2009 Mini with Snow Leopard. Am looking at buying a new MBA which obviously has Lion preinstalled. Is there anyway I can upgrade the Mini using the new MBA or do I have to buy a separate copy of Lion from the App Store?

Also would like to know the answer. Getting the new mini and want to upgrade my old MBA.

Sure you can, for $29, from the App Store. The Air doesn't include any sort of install media, and even if it did, that OS is only licensed to be used on the Air.
