    Hi, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but I'm not quite sure where it belongs. (mods feel free to move it)

    My wife has a macbook air which she uses vmware fusion on. We just bought a new aluminum macbook and we were wondering if we can use vmware fusion on it too, or if we have to go out and buy another copy of the software. Thanks.

    Well the difference is between if you can and if you are meant to. As far as I am aware vmware fusion licenses are single machine only. You might want to actually read the license to check though, but I have no reason to believe it would be otherwise.
    So yes you can but no you aren't allowed to.

    Edit: Just checked their website and they are sold in single, 5 pack and 10 pack licenses... big gap between 1 and 5 machines :p

    hmmm....maybe I should just do the 30 day trial. The only reason I want it, is so I can run a windows game I picked up, "The Political Machine 2008".

    This whole fusion thing is kind of confusing for me, I had been a windows user for years, until I picked up my iPhone last year. After that I switched to mac, and have been using osx exclusively, and never messed with parallels or fusion.
