    My sister bought a new mac with leopard on it. Is it possible for me to use the same copy of that cd to install it on my macbook as well or do I have to buy it?

    Afraid you're going to have to buy it. Even if you were to try it, the dvd/cd is bound to the hardware, so if she's got an iMac for example, the disk won't work on a Macbook.

    Same thing goes for the different revisions of Macbook / Macbook Pro I should imagine.

    At least that's what I hear. Never needed to try it myself.
