I have bought a Macbook Air (with Lion) but I am not able to find the Devices section in Finder. I want to see my HD in Finder. I just explored Disk Utility and found that there 120GB hdd named HD Macintosh. How can I see that in Finder?

Don't you see it in a Finder window when you press ⌘⇧C (or Go → Computer)? Also, what is the output of ls -l@ /Volumes? – slhck Mar 5 '12 at 18:25
