    MacBook Pro Install Discs on a MacBook

    Does anybody know if it is possible to use a MacBook Pro Snow Leopard reinstall disc to upgrade a MacBook running Leopard, if the system requirements for the MacBook are met? I wanted to know if I could save $30 bucks by using my Pro install discs instead of having to buy the retail drop in dvd. It is no problem for me to do a clean wipe and "start over" if that matters.

    No, the restore discs only work with the machine they shipped with.
