    Does anyone know or think the new USB restore key would work with the previous gen Air ? I lost my restore CDs and was wondering if one of these would work on it.

    I imagine that, like the standard restore DVDs supplied, it'll work on the exact hardware it ships with only. So no it won't work on a previous generation Air.

    If you call AppleCare they will ship you replacement restore DVDs for your existing Air for a very reasonable cost (usually about $25).

    This will not include the original iLife that shipped with the machine. No big deal if you have a separate iLife disc or want to upgrade to iLife '11 anyway.
