I just bought second-hand iMac 21.5" a couple of days ago and it didn't come with installation discs which normally come with its original box when you buy from Apple.

Anyone know where i can get those?

Mine is 3.06 GHz i3 / 4GB 1333 ram / 500G HDD with OS X version 10.6.5

Would be so grateful if any helps!

Cheers, Bora-

Call Apple and ask. They will most likely sell you them at a reasonable cost.

Yep, call Apple and ask for a set of replacement discs - here in the US they typically charge about $20-$30. Not sure how much they charge in the UK.

Or just buy a copy of the retail SL disc - but then you'd be missing the iLife suite disc. If you want to upgrade to iLife '11 though, that won't really matter. You'll just be missing the hardware test.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
