    I am going to buy a new Macbook Pro when Leopard comes out. However, the new Mac Mini is also looking pretty good! When I buy the Macbook Pro with Leopard, can I install that copy of Leopard on my Mac Mini?

    No. The OS version which comes with a new Mac is always machine-specific. You can use it on any MBP of the same vintage, but nothing else.

    To be more precise, it will _work_ on any identical MBP, but possibly not on a MacMini. But it is still not legal to use it on any other computer at all (as long as it is on the MBP).

    the license specifically says you can only have it installed on one machine
