I just bought a used macbook pro and accidentally deleted textedit. It didn't come with the installation disc. I've search everywhere but I can't find a way to download textedit for OS X 10.6.5.

Have you definately deleted the app from the Applications folder?

It should still be in the trash.....

The textedit.app is not in the trash or the application folder.

Mistake number 1 is buying a machine without the restore disks.

You can call Apple and they'll be able to send you new disks.

No, it's installed with the OS. You could grab TextWrangler or any number of other text editors out there.

However, if you don't have the install discs, I'd call Apple and ask for a replacement set.

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.

The Install DVd's that come with the machine will also help you in the future in case something goes wrong and provide the Apple Hardware Test that is very helpful also.
