    According to the EULA, no. A single user CD means one computer and is a license to have it installed on a single machine.

    In reality, yes, however this counts as piracy I believe and should not be discussed on these forums.

    EDIT: Unless it is the CD that came with your MacBook; that might have specific drivers etc for the MacBook not compatible with the iMac, (meaning in reality it still wouldn't work). If someone can clarify this it'd be appreciated.

    You actually can (since there are no S/N or activation), but it goes against the license agreement.
