    I need help from you Mac gurus. Im a fairly new mac user and a brand new member of these sweet forums.
    I made the switch to mac about 10 months ago when I got my mac mini 1.83 intel core 2. 3gb ram and 80gb HD (leopard). I fell inlove with the OS so much that now I picked up a nice used Powerbook 1.67 1.5gb 80gb HD running leopard. Here's where my questions start!.
    My powerbook does not have iLife, which I use quite a bit on my mini. I heard about the migration tool and almost tried it.
    Anyway, my question is the following. Can I migrate/drag/copy Ilife apps from my mini to my powerbook? and if so, how does that affect those files in the mini? I want to have the apps running on both machines. I was affraid I would lose the apps on the mini if I migrated them to the PB.

    Sorry for the newb question, i stayed up last night looking for the answer but i had no luck.

    Spend the $80 and get it from the Apple Store.

    iLife for your mini is on the gray discs.

    And yes, you have to pay more. It is for 1 license, so it can only be used on one machine.
