    I have two computers, do i have to buy the Family pack to install in on both? I am a teacher so i get it for $70 bucks and i would rather not pay $200 for both computers...

    I think it depends on your usage. Are you the only one who uses those computers (ie. will both of them ever be in use at once)?

    I think that would fall under fair use laws, but only if you are the sole user. Anyone?

    You need one license for each computer. Whether you achieve that through a single family pack or two single licenses is up to you...depending on how the cost works out and perhaps whether you plan to, for example, pick up another used Mac that won't have Leopard on it already.

    wow so it seems the best way to go at this is to buy two single packs for $140 bucks, assuming that is i don't need to install it on another computer...

    if I own 2 Macs that only I use, and I could only / do only use 1 Mac at a time physically, does the license state I need 2 copies of Leopard?

    I'm not in this situation. I'm just curious.
