Can I restore a Time Machine/Time Capsule backup to a different kind of machine?

I bought one of the new i7 iMacs that had graphics/screen problems and have now returned it, and am thinking I may just get a Pro to replace it since people are still getting new ones with the same issues. The thing is, I know the drivers, etc. are different, so would restoring a Time Machine backup from an iMac to a Pro (or an MBP, or ...) break it or otherwise fail? Any tips folks can provide would be most appreciated here.
