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.


iMac (20-inch Mid 2007), Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Nope' system disc's are machine specific.


    Retail Snow Leopard Upgrade Disc's are no longer available at the Apple online Store, but if you call Apple Support they may still have some available at the original price.


    Contacting Apple for support and service


    Other options for obtaining a Retail Snow Leopard Upgrade Disc can be found at Amazon, E-Bay and on Craig's List, but the prices are going up everyday.

    Thanks so much for suggesting I call Apple. I figured since the disks weren't listed on their site, they no longer had any. Wrong! They had them for $19.99! Way better than ebay, etc. Thanks again!
