i dont think...that it would be a problem...its not like it can be used on any system that dosent already have tiger...so id say you are good, and its not locked to your computer or anything like that

There will be the whole problem that it's a restore CD (right?) and will have stuff specifically meant to be restored on your Mac.

Actually, the disks are meant only for backup purposes and can't be resold by the end user. The only OS X disks that can be resold are the upgrade ones that can be bought for $129(single) or $199(Family). If you read the terms and conditions, you'll find that this is not present for backup disks that come with your computer. Sorry OP.

If you sell the original install disks, you'll lose iLife as it's not included on the OSX dvd. There may also be other programs on the install disc you may want to have.
