    Heres my situation. I currently own a macbook with Tiger, and I am ordering an iMac for my dad ( He's finally made the big change :) ). Anyway, I would like to upgrade from Tiger to Leopard on my macbook.

    When I receive the iMac, will it come with Leopard installation disks? If so, will I be able to use the disk(s) on my macbook?

    Nope, the disks are locked to the machine they came with.

    If you would like to upgrade your other machine, buy the Leopard software as well and install it on that machine. You can get it retail or with education discounts or from etailers like Amazon also at a discount. If you have more than one other Mac you would like to upgrade, there is a family pack available.
