What's the limited amount of downloads available with the purchase of FCP X?

One for each of your computers (up to 5?)... same as iTunes purchases. I've got it running on a MacPro and my MBP right now. Installed without a hitch on both computers (only paid for one license). In fact I've opened on both at the same time.

[Jerry Hofmann] "One for each of your computers (up to 5?)... same as iTunes purchases."

does it link to your itunes account? ie do the computers have to be the same ones that your itunes music is licensed to?

Well, I just signed in to the App Store using my Apple ID, and clicked buy (boy that was quick and scary easy to do)... Once it installed on the first machine, I could install on the other without purchasing again.

Hi Jerry - when you say (1) for each computer, would I be able to eventually download it multiple times onto one computer (different partitions running different os), and this would be included as the (1) on that particular computer.

Or would the (1) per computer be just that: one and done?

Thanks,

Rob

I read the license agreement, and it states that you can use it on your "computers"... I didn't see a mention of limitation on how many... Might take a look at the license agreement, it's pretty short actually.

Jerrry, I'm not sure I want to use it on even one computer much less several. :)

Quick question Jerry. I downloaded X with no problems to my new iMac, but I have an older MacBook Pro that has a 32-bit Intel Core Duo processor. Will FCP X not run on this Mac? Or will it run with limited functionality?

Read the minimum specs on apple's FCP X site... see if your computer is compatible. I seem to be running it OK on an older 3 gig tower that doesn't have a "supported Open CL graphics card"... the new laptop here is totally compatible. Haven't run it enough on on the tower yet to see what i don't get but hey, it seems to run OK. at least for learning.
