Hi Guys, for some extra info regarding the lack of system restore discs, I just contacted apple about this. Spoke with a nice guy in Ireland. He said all Mac's after the 20th now come with Lion, and no system discs. I stressed that I wanted Snow Leopard as it clearly still states on the iMac web page on apple site that it does still come with Snow Leopard and system restore discs. So its kinda fibbing what it comes with now. After waiting on hold for 5 mins, the guy said once your mac arrives, find the serial number then contact apple care and they will send out Snow Leopard system restore discs. Sweet, that's all I wanted, the guy was very nice. take care guys.
