    Hi there,

    I'm doing a fresh install of Snow Leopard on my Macbook Pro. This will include a bunch of my major software.

    I'm planning to make a disk image of the computer once I'm done so I don't have to reinstall everything when i want to do a big cleanup again.

    Could I use this image on my intel iMac? or is the OS installation customized to that computer (different hardware etc), rendering it useless on another computer?

    Thanks

    Absolutely. Carbon Copy Cloner is a great app for the purpose.

    There will be differences, different settings in prefs/configs.

    I would make one for each.
