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

    What i mean is, I'm trying to sell it and say you know, It has Lion installed on it. Will the person still have Lion on the Mac I'm selling??

    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?
