I have two iMacs (one late 2011, one brand new) which I use for audio production - one running SL and one running ML (10.8.2). Im having so many annoying problems moving projects between the two I have decided I would like to take them both back to SL. The ML also always gives me a system overload message when using Logic Pro 9 - even though it is much more powerful and has an i5 to the older machines i3.

I currently have time machine running on the older SL iMac - is it just a matter of plugging my time machine drive into the newer machine and doing a restore to make this happen?

Or does this create problems?

Thanks in advance.

The Newer Mac will run a minimum OSX as what it was shipped with. You can not install anything older on that machine. So SL is not going to work on that new Mac. Sorry.
