    Just purchased a new macbook and it contained a Leopard drop in the box dvd. And nothing else or no other disc was in the box, is that correct? does the leopard dvd now become the main disc should I need to reset the computer? it is a 2.16ghz superdrive version.

    Thanks

    It's an upgrade disk, just run the installer and enjoy Leopard

    I understand that but my question is when I reset the Macbook (if I ever should) is this the only disc I need and should the macbook have come with the original tiger disc?

    If it's a Leopard drop-in upgrade disc there should be a system restore DVD too. It'll be in the small cardboard box, about the size of a DVD, along with some little square bits of paper.

    Sounds like a good plan: you need a system restore DVD (either Tiger or Leopard) to reinstall the bundled apps if you ever need to...
