Most of the new ones don't come with cd's at all.
Hi,

Well , the answer is already there in your question, as now the the recovery options can also be accessed from your original Windows 7 disc but it makes sense to make another system repair or recovery disc if the original Windows 7 CD is not available.

Actually the recovery options in Windows 7 are much smarter then the previous version so you don't really need recovery separate disk! but, yes there are some laptop manufacturer which are providing the image burn of Windows 7 which actually restore the Windows 7 in full state.
