    Has anyone ordered a 2011 15" MBP 2.2 and received SL instead of Lion.

    I want to run SL, but if it does not come with it, I might have a hard time getting restore disks from someone that has SL on them?

    Is there another way to get SL on the MBP?

    I am about to order from Apple a Refurb 15" MBP with the Quad 2.2 and 1GB Vram?

    I bought an early 2011 13" MBP last summer that came with Lion installed even though Amazon stated that it would have Snow Leopard. But it can run SL too.

    So it all depends on when the MBP was manufactured. The only way to know for sure is to obtain a retail version of SL and see if you can install it.

    Frankly, SL has been buggy for me on my iMac. LOTS of kernel panics; I gave up trying to figure out the cause. Lion has been problem-free on my MBP. Quick as a bunny too.
