    I have a Macbook that was bought new earlier this year and an older Macbook Pro (original Core Duo) running older OS (10.4.11) with iLife '08. Can I use the MB's install disc to update my MBP OS+iLife? I'd like to buy Aperture for my MBP, but now need to update my OS first... guess should have bought Ap 2.0 last year.

    Install disks that came with your Mac are system specific thus you cannot use them in other Macs (won't even work). SL is only 29$ anyway
