    using iMac OSX discs to re-install OSX on MB or MBP
    I have an iMac with OSX-Tiger discs.

    I am considering buying a PB or MBP on eBay that has OSX-Tiger pre-installed, but does not come with installation discs.

    Can the discs, that came with the iMac, be used to re-install Tiger on a MBP or PB ?

    Nope. The discs are hardware specific.

    I would also advise against buying a computer that doesn't include the original discs... its just a bad idea all around. Look for one that has the originals, they aren't hard to come by.

    Why would they sell it without them in the first place. You get a computer and you get the OS.
