    Hello, I just bought a new Air that includes iLife '11. Now, I also have a mid 2010 MBP that has iLife 10 on it (I qualified for the free upgrade but stupid me didn't remember in time).

    Two questions: Since I now technically own iLife 11, can I legally put it on my MBP? If so, how do I do that since the MBA included no CDs

    Both computers are on the same iTunes account, if that helps. I would be the sole person using both computers. Honestly I'm not even worried about being technically legal, since I was entitled to iLife 11 for free but didn't do the upgrade in the allotted 30 days. I just don't want iLife nuked or anything after an update because its been registered on too many machines.

    Go to the Mac App Store on the old computer and and go to an iLife app, it should show it as purchased and let you install it from there.
