    Hey guys.
    I recently got my new Macbook Pro and I am loving it!
    I do have a question;
    My Macbook did not come with a Lion disc or anything like that. My Windows 7 desktop did come with Windows 7 on a disc, in case I had to restore it completely.
    Is there a fancy Mac way to do this? or should I call the store i got it from, and ask whats up?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hold the option key when booting and you can start off a hidden restore partition to re-install Lion.

    At this time Apple doesn't offer Lion DVDs, only Lion USB sticks.
    You do have the option to create your own though.

    Check http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1433?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US for complete instructions.

    I knew there was a sneaky Apple'ish way to do this!
    I suppose I should go and get a 16gb stick one of these days anyway.
    Thanks for your help :D
