    Does a late 2011 mac mini come with osx mountain lion on the drive does anyone know? (Refurb model but bought second hand unused)

    Mid 2011 MC936XX/A 2.0 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 (i7-2635QM Turbo Boost up to 2.9 GHz) version

    It came with Lion. The next generation after that was when Mac Mini's started shipping with Mountain Lion.

    Yes sorry ok I was more interested in knowing if its on the hard drive ready to go, even if its lion. I guess it must be? Just wondering if I need to buy it.

    Well second hand obviously I couldn't say, but when you get a refurb from Apple, it has the OS on it. Refurbs get all the same stuff as new.

    You'll need to buy it if you ever need to reinstall, and you can't use the recovery partition to reinstall 10.8 if you haven't bought it.
