where are the recovery and windows CDs?

HI there...just got my new edge 15 last night. Nice looking. On my previous Thinkpads I got recovery and windows cds? Are they not doing this anymore?

 

thanks

Didn't get any with my Edge 11. You can create recovery media.

Follow the procedure outlined here:

Looks like paper and digital media are getting expensive these days..

I don't think any PC Mfgs ship with disc they use recovery partitions.
you can always buy a set if you don't want to create them $ 55.
