    I just got done setting up my parents iMac(brand new 20 inch) and I saw these disks. What are they for? I thought it was for leopard because I am running Tiger now and I thought I could upgrade to leopard using these? IDK jw if not i'll just buy leopard or wait until the Keynote.

    No. They won't work with your MacBook.

    Why the heck do they say "For Mac Computers"?!

    yeah I was just wondering though. I thought these disks had to do with leopard or something. So I thought I could upgrade them onto my macbook. Guess not :confused:

    They're the Software Restore disks. They will only work with the iMac.

    Because none of the restore disks I have say that.

    Because it doesn't make sense for them to say that.

    Because the EULA disallows the existence of non-"Mac computers".

    ok thanks! I'll just wait for keynote to see if they announce 10.6 and i'll go from there. I have 350 to spend and I want to get some stuff for my macbook. Thanks
