Me and a buddy want to split Minecraft, but he has a MAC and I have an HP. Would we be able to use the same account even with different machines?

EDIT: And yes I already know we can't play at the same time, we just want to avoid having to buy two copies.

Yes, you will have no problems. But you risk getting banned, can never play together, and you are ripping off Mojang's hard work.

@TitanStrike

I bought the game twice already. Just wanted my buddy to enjoy the experience in hopes that he'll buy his own copy. Thanks for the quick response.

Mojang has actively encouraged people to pirate the game in the past to try it out. They're one of those sensible companies that knows they've already made an absolute fortune on the game, and that a low percentage of pirates aren't going to bring them into financial ruin.

I know, they say to buy it after and all but still you should buy it eventually.

I've never heard of a minecraft account being universally banned or deleted. Has that actually happened? I'm fairly certain that Mojang does nothing to "police" minecraft accounts to watch for this type of stuff.

Simple, if you can lan the mac and pc, login and install it on both pc, then log off of one and play offline, but you should still be able to see then in a lan game.
