    Just got a Macbook Pro 15" today, and after I set it up I installed the iLife '11 that comes with the mac in a separated disk. Conclusion: My mac just came with the mac itself? Or the installation disk isn't included anymore?

    XCode is on the system install disk, in the Optional Installs folder.

    You can also create a free developer account on Apple's web site and download the installer (it's 1 GB or so).

    My MBP just came with 1 disk, the iLife '11 installation disk.

    Unless Apple crammed iLife 11 and the Mac OS X on the same disk, I would say you are missing a disk. Best to call Apple or go to a local Apple Store and let them know that you didn't get the Mac OS X install disk.

    You should have a gotten a System install disk that allows you to restore/install the OS from scratch. That should have XCode on it. If you didn't get that disk, you should ask Apple for one.

    I got my my i7 MBP at the end of last August. It came with a system disk and an applications disk.

    Sorry man. My disks were below my desk at a place I couldn't see them. Thanks so much for the support.

    FYI: after spending about an hour trying to track down a Lion compatible version of XCode I thought I would mention while you can get the current XCode as a free download from the app store, you have to be an apple registered developer to get older versions (such as 4.3.3 for Lion).

    Fact: registration is free, you can use your apple id. One generic survey page and you can get any version of xcode you need.

    I want that hour of my life back but will be happy if I save somebody else an hour in the future.
