    The auction states it's for: Macbook Pro Restore DVDs with OS X 10.5 Leopard

    I have a G4 ibook. Will this put OSX 10.5 on my computer? Or do I have to specifically look for something geared to the ibook? Thanks.

    No it won't. You need either a generic Leopard disk or an iBook-specific Leopard disk.

    Since Leopard is the current version, and is available at Apple Stores and online, I would suggest getting it there. You will know you are getting a legal copy and you will know that it will work on your computer.

    Also, make sure you meet the minimum requirements for Leopard. Some iBook G4s don't. Good luck!

    I better just look through Apple, you're right. I'm afraid I'll buy the wrong one and waste my money. Thank you! :)
