Waited for the last minute to use the EDU $100 rebate for the wife's new iBook in case new ones were coming out.<br><br>Got the 1.2 GHZ for $949 plus the $100 rebate from Apple. Picked up 512 MB memory for $43.<br><br>Will I be able to use the 10.4 install disks on my others?<br><br>
Nope. If your OS discs come with the hardware, there's a good chance you'll get a message "Not For Use With This... blah blah blah". Friend of mine bought a Mini and we gave that a try with my iBook. But Standalone Storebought copies of Tiger will install anywhere.<br><br>-------<br>Aural Fixation - "Doin' It In Your Earhole"
I got a "CPU drop-in" Tiger pack with my iBook, and as near as I can tell, I can use that to install Tiger anywhere. Looks to be a generic product. <br><br>If it has only system restore disks, you might be UTSCWAP.<br><br>
I could be wrong but I think the new boxed ones the CDs are stamped with the new machines ID = nope<br><br>The refurbish, resells and store boxes are the generic CDs<br><br>My question is if you install the same generic CD on 2 Macs and then net them together. Won't the OS know that the other was a pirated copy ? ? Much like Quark and PS won't let you use both copies at the same time<br><br>
