    I have just purchased an iMac and used migration assistant to transfer everything across from my MBA. I have Microsoft Office 2011 on my MBA (licence for 1 mac) My confusion is that Office now seems to work on both MBA & iMac?? I was told by the shop i would need to purchase another copy of Office to run on my iMac which i did but haven't activated as of yet as it seems to have transferred across. Is this normal to happen? not sure wether to return the extra copy of office or not.

    If I understand correctly, the purpose of "n machines" is that you can only use it on n machines. So if you bought 1 platform, you can have it on any computer till the time that is the only computer you use it on. More precisely, if you transfer to your MBA and delete from the iMac, you shouldn't be breaching the conditions.

    Seek confirmation.

    Is your iMac a replacement for your MBA or a supplemental device?
