    Hello all, I have a Macbook Unibody that I am trying to sell. I just purchased Snow Leopard for it last week.

    I am going to take this harddrive out and put the original 250gb in. Will I be able to just install Snow Leopard in my next Macbook Pro I purchase or no?

    Also can I just Install this harddrive(has Snowleopard) into a MBP that has SnowLeopard also and just use it from the start?

    Basically I just want to make sure I dont need format this hard drive since I have alot of important things.

    Thanks any help would be appreciated

    No need, as any Mac sold new since September/October 2009 comes with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, and the Retail version of Mac OS X 10.6 you just bought probably has only 10.6.3 on it, thus it is older than the Mac OS X version on any current Mac and will be of no use for new Macs.

    Yes, you can, if you updated the Mac OS X version in the old MBP to the latest version and run Software Update on the new MBP after you first booted from that transferred HDD.

    Perfect, wanted make sure I could just pop this harddrive into new MBP and it won't give me any issues.
