So I found a set of restore discs that I'm not sure belong to my 2007 iMac or my wife's 2008 MacBook. Anyone know how to tell the the difference? Is there a handy part # list somewhere?

Tyr to run the "additional applications" install from the disk. It'll tell you if the installation is authorized on that machine or not.

If the discs have a model part...

You can look in everymac.com in the models you presume and identify what models fit in the data labelled in your discs...I hope:):apple:
