Last week I bought a brand new MBA which of course came with the above apps.

Is there any way of now getting these onto my imac and white macbook? They don't show up as purchases on my app store account

Thanks

Nick

The iWork apps (Pages, Keynote, and Numbers) are only available free to purchasers of a new Mac and will appear in your "Purchases" when you access the app store with your new Mac. If you access the app store with one of your other Macs, they will not be listed. However, there is nothing that says you can't install them on your other two Macs. Just copy them over. ;D

thanks chscag - is it just a case of dragging the iWork folder over to the shared devices in Finder as long I'm logged into my Apple ID on them?

The Pages, Keynote, and Numbers apps are no longer placed in an iWork folder, rather they are now listed as separate apps on your new MBA. Just copy them individually as needed to your other Macs. You may have older versions of the iWork apps on your other Macs which is why you would not want to drag them into that same folder.
