    Hy

    I was wondering, I received multiple (different) ML redeem codes,
    what would happen if I used them? (Install on different MacBook pro's.)

    Has someone used there multiple codes?
    Has someone experience with it (e.g. last year with Lion, any problems?)

    All thoughts on this are welcome.

    It's moot, as the licensing allow you to install ML on all the Macs you own. Also, there is no activation or serial number required for OS X.

    Yeah, I know I installed ML on my own rMBP,
    But can't apple in a month or so decide to check if you used a code on an older mac that could't possible apply for the up-to-date program?

    And can't they then back-track that code to you an sue you for theft or so?

    Lucky you, I'm still waiting, 80hours, for a redeem code. Unbelievable.

    Same here, I applied on the 25th and heard nothing until yesterday after I re-applied again and heard within 4 hrs. Purchasing from an online Apple reseller and showing Apple proof of purchase seems a little difficult for them to grant me a code. I have now requested written proof of purchase from this reseller. The hoops we have to jump through is ridiculous.

    No. As I said, the license allows multiple installs and there is no authentication or serial number required.
