I have a MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard, which I'm planning to upgrade to Mountain Lion. After doing so, can I then use the Snow Leopard disks to upgrade an Intel-based Leopard desktop? Didn't know if laptop and desktop OS is interchangeable. And also if it matters if the laptop is Pro and desktop is not.
