    I bought an ibook of ebay and it has an adminstrative password that the seller forgot. Where can i attain a copy of the latest MAC OS X so I can format the hard drive with a fresh copy?

    Costs about $115.00 at Amazon, but you can find it much cheaper on eBay.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0002G71T0/qid=1120272062/sr=8-1/ref=pd_bbs_ur_1/102-5097869-5644152?v=glance&s=software&n=507846

    You can um..."download" it, but without a Mac to burn it with, you're going to have a hard time getting it to work. You'd be better off just buying a copy. I did (even though it cost 2x what I paid for my G3 B&W :wtc: )
