Has anyone got either 10.5 or 10.6 installation DVDs for Leopard/Snow Leopard for Mac that they wish to sell?

I have a Mac Mini 1.66 Intel Core Duo that would like an OS.

Thanks

The last time I checked, they were selling 10.6.3 retail which won't work. I guess I forgot the extra digit to show 10.6.5 or 10.6.6.

Why won't 10.6.3 work?

Any mac OS above tiger will work on a dual core apple mac or mini mac if the DVD is RETAIL - and not bundled with a machine.

All OS discs from Apple will be RETAIL - and should work just fine , i have Leopard and snow leopard retail and they install fine on my intel macs.

Hi mjnurney - thanks for looking, sorry only just noticed your post today.

Thanks to MagerValp for the link that Snow Leopard is available from the Apple store and now the new OS X Lion is coming out both are around 25 each for a full OS is probably my best bet to go new this time.

Normally I prefer second hand but Apple have surprised me here. I have not taken the plunge yet (waiting for holiday first before spending).

Cheers :thumbsup:
