    Hi guys,
    As almost everyone here I would like to have genuine cds of the MacOs in my powermac, although the prices are very high on ebay (about 80eur for tiger ,100eur + for leopard) and I've read on a post here on macrumors that apple sell the mac os cds.
    Well decided to give them a call.
    They asked me 17eur+VAT for each Mac Os =) not bad eh?
    BUT you must have a serial number of a non "obsolete" mac that supports the operative systems.For example a 2007 macbook (maybe some newer powerpcs work too).
    I think I would share this, so everyone here can stop paying stupid prices for dated software and burn that money on hardware upgrades :p
    Please confirm if it is the same way on your country, and post here.
    If it +- the same for some countries I will post on the FAQ.

    Well, we don't have any Apple store here in Baltics nor Online Store. Only resellers and they don't sell these.
