    Really Dumb Question... Install Media?
    Ok, I know this is going to be a dumb question. I got my new Macbook pro today and in my zest to unpack it, I did not see any OS X Install CD's. I saw someone else asking about this. Are we supposed to get installaton CD's?

    On my Intel Mini they were in a Gray box with the manuals inside the main box. They are DVD's. There should be 2 of them.

    Gray box with a White Apple. Hope they have not changed but there are DVD's with your machine unless it was opened before you bought it somewhere.

    white macbook core duo.

    same as dtravis.

    disks came in the same sort of grey box.
    once i lifted the macbook out of the bottom styrofoam piece, the box was inset into the styrofoam centered beneath the macbook.

    i think there's a macbook pro unpacking thread with lots of pics... i'll see if i can find it.
