    I'm about to purchases a new MacBook Pro, I want to know does it ships with Lion or not? If it does, is there a screenshot with Lion on the box? If that's true, I can look at the box before I buy it.

    One more thing, if your machine does ships with Lion, is your keyboard "F3 & F4" keys with the new graphics on it? :)

    Thanks a lot guys.

    Thanks for your reply. Do you know whether they have a new Lion screenshot on the box or not?

    Apparently the pic on the box has blue wallpaper (instead of purple).

    Just a quick note, if you're buying refurbished, don't be surprised if it doesn't come with OS X Lion. If it doesn't you are entitled to a free upgrade.

    Thanks. I'm aware of that, is just that I want it to be ships with Lion instead of having me to upgrade it.

    I bought a 13'' MBP a week ago from an Apple certified store, and I asked the guy why the website listed "Snow Leopard 10.6" as the shipping OS. He explained that it's just to be on the safe side, in case there are actually some in stock without Lion, though that is highly unlikely.
    Mine shipped with Lion, and I'm loving it!

    Received my 2011 MPB 15" back in the beginning of Aug which came with Lion. F3 and F4 keys launch mission control and lauanchpad.

    I just picked up a MBP 17" over the weekend at Bestbuy and it still had SL on it. So verify before purchasing.
