    I honestly thought that i was going to have Snow Leopard installed, At least thats what the saleslady told me. Its actually pretty good. No complaints so far.

    Does you Pro's keyboard have the F3 key's function from Expose to Mission Control and the F4 key's function from Dashboard to Launchpad?

    What spec did you go for, custom or off the shelf?

    Yes it does. Very nice features. I disabled the reverse scrolling feature. Why didn't it come with OSX lion and application disks? Heres my config.

    Very nice, my 2.2 is ordered with high res and 128GB SSD - just got to work out what external HD to buy.. As for the lack of disks, it's Apples way now what with Lion being download only..

    Because Apple is moving away from optical media, you'll be able to clean install Lion through the internet.

    iOS? Not yet, but soon. It's still Mac OS X for now. :D

    No disks, but you have a "Recovery HD" partition. To check it out, hold "Option" during startup.

    I recommend making a boot DVD with the Lion install in case your drive fails.

    Definitely custom because of his 8GB RAM.
