    How come my Macbook pro didnt come with facetime but my friends macbook came with facetime. My MBP is not the most recent one but i got it not even a year ago. Does anyone know why this is.. maybe because he has an iphone 4? and it automatically synced that app to his computer? Thank you

    No, as the iOS app called Facetime is for iOS devices like the iPod touch and iPhone and iPad and will not run on Mac OS X.
    What you can do to get Facetime is to open the App Store in Mac OS X, if you have Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later installed and search for "Facetime" and then buy it for 99 cents.

    New computers come with it. I bought mine in June and had FaceTime installed with the OS (SL then). If you bought it a year or so before, you would have had to pay for it.

    As the poster above me already wrote, it comes with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

    It also comes with new MBP's - regardless of Lion or not.

    Okay, I'll re-state what I said earlier. When did you buy your computer? When did your friend buy it? I'm assuming you bought yours a year or so ago and your friend bought it recently. Is that correct?

    Macs bought after Face Time was released have the app included, any older ones have to pay the $0.99. It has nothing to do with Lion but rather to do with some complex corporate accounting. If you search you will find a news article with the details in it.
