    Hello all, I have a older A1181 not sure when they came out 2006?

    Anyway I recently replaced the hard drive due to the old drive crashing. After putting in the new drive I realized I had lost the restore disk. So not sure how to install the OS on my machine, and looking for advice.

    Could I just upgrade my system to snow leopard if I buy the box set thats $129? Also if I were to buy the restore disks online could that work?

    Yes.
    Call Apple for replacement disks. Grey install disks are model-specific.

    The license you agree to for the non-family version prevents you from installing on multiple computers. However, the installer itself will install on as many computers as you want.

    You live with your conscience.

    Yes but no iWork or iLife. Don't know if that's important to the OP.
