    Hello.

    I've bought an iMac and will shortly be selling my Macbook Pro.
    Previously, I've bought items such as iWork, FCP X, etc etc on the Macbook Pro.

    How do I get these purchases on to my iMac?

    Thanks

    If you bought them via the App Store they'll be available when you setup your account on your new computer. Else they're on the DVD that either came with your original Mac or you bought.

    Ah, slight issue -

    It would appear that i bought iWork via disc, and of course the new iMac is without a drive??? :eek::eek:

    Use the Migration Assistant on the new machine to pull apps off the old machine. If you already have an account and everything setup on the new machine, just uncheck everything EXCEPT applications when you run the Migration Assistant.
