If I buy a game on Steam can I download it on both my iMac and my PC Laptop?

Or multiple computers.

    You can download your Steam games after verifying that you're the account owner on a different computer, but only a few games can be played on both Mac and Windows.

    You can tell whether or not it's Mac compatible by looking at the store page for the game.

    This depends on the game. As with all games today nearly all work on a PC while only a few have an equivalent for the Mac - Steam's website will tell you if a game works on both. You can install most games that you get through Steam on as many computers as you like, but can only log onto Steam to play on one machine at a time. The exception is games that you buy through Steam which use other forms of DRM such as games from Electronic Arts - installing those everywhere will use up your activation limit.
