    hello everyone..
    I have a 24" Imac with the Intel core 2 duo processor. My machine is currently running Leopard. I would like to upgrade to Snow Leopard now in anticipation of Lion to soon follow. My question is, can I borrow the mac os/applications install discs that came with my brothers Imac (it has Snow Leopard) to upgrade mine or do I need to buy the Snow Leopard disc from Best Buy or Apple for $30?

    thanks for your time.

    No (as they are model specific, beaten to death by thousand other threads here and everywhere else, even 4chan), and yes. In that order.

    Thank you for your reply. I did a search before I posted the question,, but I wasn't able to find a answer. Sorry to bother anyone.
