    I bought an iMac and it has a CPU Drop-In DVD for iLife inside, I also own a macbook and I would rather have iLife there so i have some questions:
    1: Can I install it in my macbook or is it only for iMac?
    2: Can I install it in both? Or will it stop working after the first installation?
    3: If I CAN install it in both, is it illegal because of the licences or something like that?
    Thanks lots for your help! :)

    You can physically install it on as many machines as you want, but installing it on anything than the machine it came with is against the terms of the license agreement and is (strictly speaking) piracy.

    You can install it any number of times without it stopping working. It is only licensed for one installation. It is a matter for your conscience what you do.

    1. It will work on any Mac, that iLife is supported on.
    2. Yes.
    3. Yes, as you only have a single license.
