The lion purchase is part of your iTunes account. You can redownload it from iTunes when you get a new mac

If Lion is installed on this computer you're selling...where would it go after it's sold? If Lion is installed...it's installed.

Ahh...that makes the situation a bit more clear. But I'm still a bit confused. You mentioned that:

- this computer currently has Lion installed on it
- you mentioned that you want to do reset the computer to "factory settings"
- and you mentioned something about "Leopard"...but you really didn't make this part clear.

So my question is:

- What OS install disk are you using to reset this computer back to factory settings?
