    Hey guys,

    Would anyone with the Aluminum MacBook 08 install disks be willing to upload an ISO copy for me?

    Obviously I am NOT trying to pirate anything, as I obviously own this machine (or else it wouldn't work) and just want to install iLife etc from it (I'm running Snow Leopard that I bought now). Apple wants $32 to replace these disks -- more than Snow Leopard costs. Apple replaced my MacBook before and I accidentally kept the wrong DVDs. Just trying to save a few bucks.

    Thanks guys.

    well, technically what you are suggesting is indeed a PIRATE copy. hopefully they don't throw you into the BAY for it

    The copy of the physical media is not the problem.

    When you buy a Mac, you receive a license for Mac OS X and iLife (both one specific version, i.e. 10.5 and '08). You can install it from every media you want, including DVDs downloaded from a Torrent or what ever, legally.

    If you have a Mac that shipped with Leopard however and install the system with a downloaded Snow Leopard-DVD, that's illegal as you never acquired a license for that.
