    New in Macs
    Hello, I bought a MacBook Pro yesterday but when I bought it I realize that the computer didn't come with an OS, my question im downloading Mac OS Tiger right now, and I want to know if I need a bootable CD to install the OS, and if I need it, how do I create a bootable Mac OS CD in Windows. Thanks.

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | iMac(2.1 G5) | MacBook(2.16 C2D) | MacMini (1.67 CD) | iPhone 4 | iPad (3rd Gen)
    Every Mac you buy comes with OX S preinstalled. If you bought it new there should be two DVDs along with it.

    Here are the things you get in the box
    * MacBook Pro
    * 85W MagSafe Power Adapter, AC wall plug, and power cord
    * Lithium-polymer battery
    * Apple Remote
    * DVI to VGA adapter
    * Install/restore DVDs
    * Printed and electronic documentation
    If any of them are missing, I suggest you to contact your dealer immediately.

    You should buy the OS X I'm afraid.

    If your computer didn't come with Tiger, you'll need to buy it.
