    I have just picked up a very tidy MacBook 5,2 which is currently running OS X 10.5.8 (Leopard).

    I have the DVD for OS X 10.6.3 (Snow Leopard) that came with my Mac Mini, but when I put this in the MacBook it says that it can't be upgraded. So my question is whether I can upgrade the MacBook to Snow Leopard?

    Thanks Simon

    Yes, you can, with the 29 USD Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Retail/Upgrade DVD available via the Apple Online Store. The grey Restore DVDs are machine specific and will not work on any other Mac than the model they come with.
