    Hi there,

    just a slight warning, this is a really idiotic question :p

    but, have two MacBooks currently (old one = Tiger; new one = Leopard), and I was just wondering if there is any way to install Leopard on my old MacBook with my new MacBook?

    Thanks for the help.

    Duff-Man say...this question gets asked a few times every week it seems. Getting a copy of 10.5 with a new (or recent) Macbook does *not* give you a license to install it on another computer...oh yeah!

    Aside from the licensing issues, it wouldn't work anyway because each disk is unique to the computer it shipped with (i.e. a 2.4 GHz unibody MacBook disk won't work with a 2.4 GHz plastic MacBook).
