You must be installing iLife on your Mac before launch of Mac OS X Lion. iLife is a suite of software applications developed by Apple for organizing, editing, and publishing photos, movies, and music. The suite comprises five applications: iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, GarageBand, and iWeb, all of which run on the Mac OS X operating system.

But the newest Apple MacBook Air and Mac mini have no optical drive. It seems like Apple is gradually removing the need of optical discs. So the question comes to my mind “How to install iLife suite on Mac OS X Lion“.
