    my 12 month old MacBook Pro is running slow and i would like to reinstall OS X on it. I have lost the original Install disks. Can i borrow my friends brand new MacBook disks to install on my MacBook Pro ??

    In other words, is there a difference between the install disks of a macbook & macbook pro ?

    thanks.

    They're system dependent discs. You can only use them on the hardware they came with. You might want to call up Apple and order some replacements then.

    It has to be an identical model and revision of said model.
