The Lion server is even easier to set up than the SL server. But will you need Apple Remote to push the pictures. You can, when you have the server simply work on the server just like it was a part of your mac.

When I say images I am talking about os images. More of pushing the install of osx.

Ahh ok. Then Lion server and ARD 3.5 would be perfect.

You would probably want two copies of ARD, one for your own mac to control and the other to use as an ARD Task server on the Lion server.

Which means, you select the macs you want to deal with and the task server takes care of the execution so your own mac is not busy pushing. This is excellent for cases where some remote mac or even a laptop is not available. The task server sees them and then executes.

Btw, the price of both ARD and Lion server is only a fraction of what it used to be since it started to be available on the Apple Store.
