Can I use someone else's Leopard disc with my MBP?

You see, my girlfriend ordered a MacBook and it's going to come pre-loaded with Leopard.

Will it come with the disc as well? And if so, could I snatch it off of her and load it onto my MBP?

That'd rock but it seems too simple....

Physically yes, legally no.
Well, yeah. Not legally.

But will all MacBooks (not MBP's) come pre-loaded with Leopard AND a Leopard disc? Or will it only be a reformatting disc specific to THAT model of computer? Or will I be able to pop it onto my MBP...

Cause that would just be...nice.

Thanks for the reply, dude.

If it's anything like what Apple's done up to now, the Leopard disk will be model-specific, ie. not the same as a retail disk.

It only works on the leopard ultimate version not the leopard basic or premium versions :confused:

The MacRumors moral police is coming!

Seriously though, $129 isn't that expensive, is it? I just spent 2/3 of that on underwear.
