    So low and behold, my macbook box was thrown out (I don't want to talk about it), with my restore disks in it :confused:. Can I factory restore my Mac without them? I just purchased Snow Leopard tonight if that helps at all?

    Thanks

    If you call up apple and explain, they sometimes will just send you a replacement set. They aren't like retail disks.

    You can use the just purchased Upgrade DVD to Clean Install of OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard
    Though iLife is not included. You have to either purchase it new (iLife '11) or contact Apple about getting Replacement DVDs.
