    so i still have leopard install discs that came with my macbook. i know that leopard discs from retail boxes are still useful for powerpc owners.

    can the leopard discs that came with my macbook be used for powerpc owners and sold? or are they worthless now

    Install discs that usually come with a Mac are programmed to only work for said device, so that person buying would have to have a similar Macbook model for it to work.

    In my opinion, just hang onto it, their completely worthless unless their the retail versions anyways.

    If they're just normal Leopard disks with the operating system on them they might be worth $50 or so on eBay.

    Hang on to them, if you ever sell the machine the buyer will want those disks if he knows what he's doing. They're not worth a lot as they are but you'll take a re-sell value hit if you can't produce them when selling.
