    Can I use the restore disk from my MacBook pro mid-2010 on a powermac g4? I am looking at getting one and would want to reinstall the OS. Thanks James

    No. You need a Retail version of Mac OS X 10.2, 10.3, 10.4 or 10.5, but the Mac OS X version coming with your MBP is not even compatible with Macs older than 2006, as Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard is meant for Intel Macs only.
