    I need to restore it back to factory so I can return it as I do not like this machine one bit, and I am finding all the software I have been using either will not work or is very buggy in Lion.

    I prefer the 2010 model with the C2D, much more reliable for what I am using it for which is just a HTPC only and some internet stuff.

    Have you updated to 10.7.1? It fixed most of my networking issues on my new Mini. If you're set on returning it though, hold down Option+R on boot to go to the recovery partition. Then use Disk Utility to wipe your main partition, and download/reinstall Lion.

    Option R does nothing even when I hold them down it just boots all the way up???

    Ugh Lion with no DVD is frustrating
