    I currenly have an iMac running Snow Leopard which i installed with the uprade disk, and once Lion is released, I will be upgrading immediately.

    However, i also have a Macbook Pro running Tiger and I would like to upgrade it to SL (Its an Intel Core Duo so it will not run Lion).

    Once I have upgraded my iMac to Lion, could I then use my SL disk to do a clean SL install on the Macbook pro running Tiger?

    I dont really want to fork out for the Mac Box Set for the uprade, and seeing as my iMac will be licenced for Lion, i dont see why I shouldnt just use my SL uprade disk to install.

    If this does work, will the fact that i violated the agreement affect my Mac's usability (once connected to internet maybe?).

    Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.

    It's borderline whether it violates your agreement - but either way it's not going to affect usability.

    Anyone planning the same?

    Under the terms we're used to in the past, that would not be considered ethical. But, the terms, they are a changin' and maybe it's ok now. I've heard that the download is good for more than one Mac, but you should confirm that, or not, with Apple.
