    I got my 13" Unibody stolen a couple of weeks ago. It was in my Targus bag so i still have the software for it at home. I bought the Unibody refurbed and it came with 2 discs, one that says, "MacBook Mac OS X Install DVD...Replacement DVD.." and the second disc, "MacBook Applications Install DVD...Replacement DVD".


    I used them on my Unibody before it was stolen to do a clean install, basically the first disc is Leopard and the second is iLife 08. What I am wondering is are the discs tied to my particular Macbook model or can I use them to install onto other Macs say such as my moms iMac? Or are they basically garbage now?

    Thanks:)

    Tied to your MacBook, I'm afraid. You could sell them on eBay to someone who has lost theirs.

    You can sell them on ebay to someone with the same unibody.

    Thanks a lot guys :D

    I figured that might be the case.

    Now as far as being the same model how much of the same model are we talking? I had a 2GHz base model Unibody purchased in November 08. Does the other Macbook have to be from the same purchase date and have the exact specs or will they work on any 13" unibody macbook?

    I'm pretty sure it would just have to be a Late 2008 MacBook, and not the exact same specs.
