Just going to rest my mac back to factory settings and want to re-install my osx leopard but can't find my original discs, so wanting to buy it.

Can't you download it? This is my problem with apple, that the CDs of the old OSX versions are almost impossible to source, although some places sell them for a premium.I believe Lion is downloadable so you could aways upgrade to that.

Can I jump into this thread with a question not unrelated to the OP.... so say the disks are missing and you found a download suitable for the unit in question... my problem started with the disk burning process. Can anyone recommend a brand of dual layer disk that works and completes the verify process? Similar situation to OP but in my case I want to reload to ascertain whether my PowerBook has a hardware or software issue. Every disk I have burnt to date has failed the verify process.
OP, I have found the OSX Leopard disks people are selling are expensive.
If you have an intel based mac it could easily be cheaper to buy a copy of Snow Leopard or maybe even Lion depending on the spec of your Macbook. My MacBook is running Lion beautifully.

Well I need to wipe my intel Mac as I think it has some bugs and it is running real slow. So once I wipe I then I I want to insert leopard and install, then upgrade to snow leopard from there. Not sure if I can install snow leopard withoutleopard.

You can install SL without L.

You mac is slowing down? Have you tried some basic maintenance. Download Onyx, its a great App. Maybe first step repair permissions.

Ive got the install discs for snow leopard but not sure if they will work with ya mac, got a stack of them after a computer lab update. they are from the 21.5" imac.
If you ascertain if they will work and wont them i can start an auction for you.
