    I'm getting ready for my Kingston V+100 SSD, and I was wondering how reinstalling everything from the disks the MBP came with works.

    First, I will install OS X and patch it up to 10.6.8.

    Then the second disk should include iPhoto, Garageband, and iMovie (iLife)?

    What about applications like address book, calculator, iChat? Does that come in the OS X disk?

    Lastly, will I lose Facetime?

    Need some clarifications :p

    Just about everything included with Mac OS is under "What's included in OS X Lion". You can ignore any Lion-specific additions, but everything else is current. Just install using both disks that came with your computer and you're good to go. If you got FaceTime from the MAS, you just have to redownload it.

    I got Facetime with OS X 10.6, so I never had to purchase it. I don't plan on upgrading to Lion yet either, which leaves the same question from before. Will I have to purchase Facetime, or does it come with the OS X 10.6 install disk?
