I am about to buy a MacBook Pro this month with Lion, I already have a Mac Mini with Snow Leopard. Would I be able to create a DVD on the macbook pro and upgrade my Mac Mini? or would I need to buy the update from the app store?

Also am I right in thinking I can get Lion server for just 49.99?

Since you are purchasing your computer pre-made with Lion, and not upgrading, you'll have to purchase it yourself via the App Store for your Mac Mini.

Yes. Lion Server is available from the Mac App Store for USD$49.99.

Ok so when I upgrade to Lion it will only cost me 49.99 USD to get the server upgrade? I thought I would have had to have had SL server first!

Yes - the licence terms for Lion Server from the App Store are the same as for Lion (for individual, non-commercial use anyway)....

You can install Lion Server on all Macs that you control. Presumably the procedure should be the same as creating a USB/DVD of Lion (i.e. create before you install).
