When I have bought used Macs from PowerMax, they do not come with the original disks. Then you look on eBay and end up paying around $50 !!
Which reminds me. I read an interesting proposal on the internet about changing software agreements. Something like we never, never own any software we buy and cannot sell it to someone else. We just rent it! I'll have to look that up again.
They mentioned OEM disks we see on eBay. One would not be able to sell those either.
But, I guess you could get a few bucks for a keyboard, mouse, memory and other "lose parts" huh?
I saw for sale on eBay "junker" Macs very cheap. The shipping would be 40 or 50 dollars though, wouldn't it?
If by machine specific you refer to the individual Mac serial number [one Mac only], no.
I bought an eMac from PowerMax. The Mac Disks for that model would have been extra and I saw on ebay they were cheaper, no shipping, so I bought there.
I think if you had eMac disks that came with your eMac, they would not work on an iMac, same year make as the eMac or Mac Pro big guy Mac. So specific in that they will work on the same model/year as the Macs put out in any certain time.
