My buddy just bought a new MacBook Pro, and received it today. I was over his house an hour ago helping set up his network when he was opening it up and we found that it came with no Lion recovery DVD/CD nor any media at all. Is this an oversight by Apple or do these new Lion MacBook Pros really not come with recovery software? I'm going to give apple a call tomorrow to see if they will send out a recovery disc for the MBP. If they really aren't supposed to come with recovery media anymore I find this unacceptable. How are you supposed to get Mac OS X back onto your MBP if you say install linux or some other OS? EDIT: Ok found some more information finally through google. Seems the software is stored in a recovery partition installed on the HDD. How would that work if the hard drive should fail or or if say I messed up formatting via fdisk or something. How would I get Lion back on without paying for it again? I find this pretty unacceptable in my mind as someone that installs random OS's at whims on my laptops.
