    Install OSX 10.6 to Old Macbook
    Hi, I just bought a latest model of Macbook (White LED 13") that come with Snow Leopard OSX 10.6.

    I have a older model of Macbook (Aluminiun Body LED 13") that one currently look same as the Macbook Pro 13" and come with OSX Leopard 10.5.

    May I know if I can use the CD of the new Macbook 10.6 install into my Older Macbook and replace the entire OS of 10.5?

    Specs:
    20" Intel iMac 2.4 Ghz/3G Ram/320HD, Snow Leopard. PBook G4, 1.5Ghz/1.5 Ram/250 HD, Leopard 10.5.6.
    As long as it's Intel, and the SL disc is the upgrade disc, then yes, no reason why not.

    The discs that accompany new Macs are typically model specific, so no you can't use them with a different model revision. Not only would this be in violation of the end-user license agreement, but when Snow Leopard (10.6) costs $29, why not just do it the right way and buy a license?

    No, the Snow Leopard upgrade from Leopard is $29(US).
