Is it worth upgrading from Tiger to Leopard?
 
I bought my MacBook in March 2007. So far, I have no problems with it. That being said, my housemate just got a new Mac and asked if I wanted to use it to upgrade my operating system with his Leopard discs.

Two questions:
1 - Is that legal? More importantly, do I lose my warranty for doing that? Am i allowed to use his discs?

2 - Is it worth it? Do people think Leopard is enough of an upgrade that it's worth doing that?

thanks!

1. It is not legal and will probably not work as system restore discs are strictly model specific.

2. Yes Leopard is a great, fast and rock steady operating system.

As the Leopard install DVD is a vital tool for ongoing maintenance, always have it on hand, which means purchase your own copy.

Hope this helps.
