    Hi!

    Is it possible to use a 2011 MacBook Air (planning to get it tomorrow) recovery usb (which will have Lion) to install Lion on a 2011 MacBook Pro?

    Or do I have any buy it from the Mac App Store anyway to install it?

    Computers shipping with Lion pre-installed will not ship with a dvd or usb drive they have a recovery partition on the hard drive so you will need to buy Lion from the app store or on a usb drive which will apparently ship next month to install Lion on your MacBook Pro
