10.7 media can be made by digging in to the .app and using disk utility, either to optical or bootable partition:

Hopefully NetInstall images can be made the same way as this then:

New machines will prolly go the way of the Air and come with a USB stick, goodbye optical nice knowing you, I won't miss your slow install times and seek sounds πŸ™‚ I look forward to a free drive bay for a 2nd drive (Time Machine built in?!)

You could also do a Firewire Target Disk Mode block copy of the OS and utilize the System Imaging Utility.

Gents, let's be mindful of NDAs if you're under them.
