    upgrade possible?
    hi

    Well I'm sure everyones heard of the new os lion.

    But I jus had a doubt regarding the basic upgrading info.

    I currently own 2 macs. so in future if I decide to switch to the new os is it possible for me to upgrade both my macs using just one cd? I mean when u get the cd of the new os is it legit to use the cd for other macs u currently own?

    Thanks to anyone who can clarify

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | LED Cinema Display | iPhone 4 | iPad 2
    No one can say for sure with 10.7 since it's not available. But generally I think it's licensed per machine. You can also buy a family pack which allows multiple installs.

    Just to be sure...you should let us know what the specs are on your Mac's just to be sure their OS can be upgraded. What I'm saying is...if your Mac's can't run 10.6...they won't be able to run 10.7.
