    I have on order a new macbook,a 320gb drive and 4gb ram.

    When I remove the HD from the new macbook would it be ok to fit it into my older macbook(running on tiger) which I am giving to my partner?

    Can anyone foresee any problems? Just checking I won't be breaking any software licenses or have missed anything stupid...:confused:

    as long as both OSes are up to date shouldn't be a problem swapping the drives.

    It's fine to swap the HD, but you'd be well served to at least Archive and Install OS X once you've placed it in the MB you're giving to your partner. Otherwise, flakiness might ensue.

    The only reason I am asking is because after reinstalling the OS on the new hard drive in the new book,i was then going to fit the drive that I am upgrading into the older macbook,so the OS would be on 2 HD's..if you get my drift....
