    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....

    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.

    I think this is getting beyond the forum rules...

    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.

    I find it funny that you paid all the money for a MacBook Pro, and then claim that Leopard is too expensive to acquire legally.

    sigh

    The MacRumors moral police is coming!

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