Expanding the Mac mini,  Using the Mac mini
I recently bought a mac mini within the last 2 months. Love the computer. But what I want to know is, shouldn;t I get a divital copy of the OS? I mean, if you buy a computer, you typically get the install discs fior the OS. Shouldn;t I be entitlted to the same as well? please let me know. Thanks!
        Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)

Something I would suggest, get a USB memory stick
and make a copy of the Recovery HD onto it.
Go here and download and follow instructions:

This will let you get a reinstall should the internal
drive get corrupted to the point of being unusable
and at the very least allow you to diagnose the problem.

It will come with Mountain Lion pre-installed. There is no digital copy of Mountain Lion. You are entitled to download Mountain Lion for your computer from the App Store as often as you want, but only for that computer. Apple has not supplied OS X media since the release of Lion.
