I'm sure I read somewhere, but can't find it now, that you are allowed to install Lion on any Mac that you have an Apple ID for. If that's correct then how do I do the following.

I bought a MacBook Pro just before Lion was released and so this Mac has Snow Leopard - I only just don't qualify for the free upgrade.

Today I bought a new iMac which came with Lion installed. This replaced my old iMac a 2006 Intel Core 2 Duo model.

I used Migration Assistant to move everything across from the old iMac to the new one and everything is working perfectly.

What I would like to do is to install Lion on the MacBook Pro. However when I go to the App Store it doesn't indicate that I can download Lion for free nor does it show up in my purchased items (which presumably is explained by the fact that I didn't buy Lion from the App Store).

Is there a way to be able to install Lion on the MacBook Pro without having to spend even more money?
