    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum, I hope this is the right place to post, but I'm currently running a Macbook Pro on Tiger and I am interested on switching over to Leopard- just so I can take advantage of a few new add-ons they have and the Sims 3 (when it comes out). Would it be smart to switch over to Leopard at this point in time, or wait for Snow Leopard? I have a family member who has the Leopard installation discs, could I just use that to do the upgrade or would I have to buy? I appreciate all the help you can give.

    Cheers,

    Jamie

    Technically, it is against the user agreement to use a family member's install discs to install leopard on your computer. It will work if you used their discs to install it though.

    If the disks are the grey install disks it will not work.
