What makes you think that you neeed to get a change of license just because you change your computer? I have never had any problem installing Mathematica to a new Mac. I know that the Linux version has machine-specific licenses but I never heard of such a thing on the Mac (although I assume this is going to change with that OSX thing). As long as you keep using Mac OS 9 rather than OSX, you shouldn't have to upgrade Mathematica.
