Question PC to Mac switch HELP!!!

Buying a new i3 iMac this week, but I have some concerns.

I currently have PT7 (mBox2) installed on my PC. When I get the PT8 upgrade will I be able to set it up without first installing version 7? I know Snow Leopard only works with version 8.

Also, I have Reason 4 installed on my PC. Can I transfer the license over to the Mac?

Yes and yes. You can fresh install PT8. And there's a Mac and pc version of reason on the install disc.

Thank you Asian Steve.

I should have been more specific in my original message. The Reason 4 that I have is an upgrade from version 2.5. Will Snow Leopard allow the install of 2.5 or would I start by placing the version 4 disc in first.

I did exactly the same thing. Originally brought 2.5 on PC and upgraded to 4. I just used the v4 discs on my new Mac and had no probs.

Thanks. I get the iMac Wednesday. I'm so excited. I haven't had a Mac since the G4 was new.
