    Hey guys just curious my 17 inch MBP will be shipping from Amazon very soon and was curious if people were receiving them with Lion Pre-Installed on them or Snow Leopard still. Please let me know! :)

    EDIT: Recieved the 17"

    JUST FYI! Just recieved my 17" from Amazon and it came with Lion pre-installed :D Thank you for everyone who participated

    I justed received my MBP 15" 2.2Ghz on Amazon and it had Snow Leopard. Also, there were OS install DVDs included. I had the option to dload for free OS X Lion thru the APP store which I wont upgrade because I'm hearing that there's a lot of bugs, CPU running hot, low battery life, and slow HD access times.

    When I upgraded my iMac to OS X Lions, the start up, shut down, and SSD access time were slower than Snow Leopard. I've reinstalled SL back on to my iMac.

    I hope that helps.

    I think having the SL OS discs + free Lion DL is FAR superior to having Lion pre-installed.

    My 15in base shipped with Lion box and keyboard, thankfully. I love Lion but that's just my opinion.

    That is strange because I got my brothers 15" 2.2Ghz from them with Lion pre installed with new keyboard.

    Does not matter to me I just want to have the most up to date materials (keyboard/standard box). I am swapping out SSD with SL or Lion in it right away. Must decide I just wanna know what the 17 inches are coming with.
    It looks pretty good when I messed around with it. Solid system but indeed some bugs. Just wanna know for the 17 inches you guys heard anything?

    It'll matter once you need to do a fresh install for any reason.

    Agree. wish my comp. came that way. Though it seems having lion pre-installed is causing far less issues than others are having.

    My 13inch (~3 days ago) also shipped with lion from Amazon

    Did you make a lion usb key or get one from apple?

    Anyone else? I get my 17 inch on Tuesday so I will know soon! I am a bit disappointed with all of this Sata 3 negativity dealing with the 17" macbook pro. Hopefully the SSD I ordered will work just fine and I will not have to return it.
