    I got an 11" MBA that came with Lion installed. So as I own a copy of Lion does this mean I can download/install it for free on my old iMac? I logged into the AppStore with my account, but there is only an option to buy Lion.

    TIA

    No. You only get a multi-user license if you purchase it via Mac App Store.

    Thanks, feared that was the case. Looks like my iMac is staying on SL.

    One Purchased Copy

    Can be installed on three machines (unless things have changed) the free upgrade is part of the "Up To Date" program, and as posted above it's just for one machine.
