Just got my MacBook air 11 refurb. Everyone has been talking about a restore USB drive. Mine did not come with this. Should I call apple or do the refurbs not come with the restore drive.

Thanks

Nevermind. The stick is a lot smaller than I thought. It was stuck in the manual.

lol, I had the same issue when I wanted to do a clean install about 4 weeks later after it arrived. I tore apart my entire house looking for it. And behold I stuck it back in the hidden compartment.

If you ever need to use it, also note that it slots into the bottom part of the USB port. It's a lot thinner than I expected, as well.
