if it is convenient, go to Apple Store and look around.

Talk to the folks there. Also ask about how Apple Care now gives advice on the phone for the duration one buys, up to three years. Ask about One on One, how it works.

Sorry to mention things you have probably already tired.

Have you tried the Apple store? Maybe call them on the phone and describe the model you have and which install discs you need, the disc might be a lot less $ than you realize. I am not sure for a...

You might look at the reviews

on Newegg.com as to which hard drives have problems.

It is as best I know.

dtravis7, while I feel sure you know of whereof you speak, when I searched for the info before I paid for the Lion App and I did not find such. I do not claim to be perfect, I only intended to make...

I have looked at the options others have mentioned.

As I obtained Lion within a few hours of its release, there was then no available advice as to how to create a copy.

After one already...

The point I did wonder about.

I am guessing there might be an application disc in there, anyway?

Does Apple now make it possible to have a complete Lion Disc for those with new computers?

Whatever it is, even a limited...

Some thoughts.

OWC SSD - last year OWC support told me that their SSD does something similar to what is called TRIM inside the firmware of the drive. TRIM is not needed. The OS does not need to be modified in...

Consider calling Apple Care.

Be prepared to prove you purchased Lion. I think they have a line set up to help with just Lion problems for those who purchased it, even if their other Apple Care has gone out.

They might ask...

Look at it this way.

Now to what you are thinking about: One can re-install OS X on the fly without touching your personal data. The Install Discs simply figure out what parts of the OS they are meant to replace and...

Apple corporate keeps to themselves when the exact release dates of new model upgrades and such are made.

Like a friend bought an Ipad and then in less than three weeks the Ipad 2 came out. ...

Time machine has lost data for me

in the past. I ended up with zero kb files. As I look on forums, I am not alone. One can not judge a back up program until it fails.
