    Use Upgrade Key Of a Computer in another??

    I quote:

    Do I have to install the Windows 8 upgrade on the eligible PC, or can I install it on another PC?

    The upgrade offer is tied to a Windows 7 PC purchased from June 2nd, 2012 through January 31, 2013, but you can choose to redeem the offer and install the upgrade on any compatible Windows-based PC with a qualifying base operating system.

Maybe a dumb question: I have a Win7 desktop and may buy a Win7 laptop. With the latter purchase, I could get the Win8 upgrade for $14.99. Would it have to be installed on the laptop, or could I run it on the desktop (which I'd rather do)? Thanks.
I understand that upgrading from Win 7 to Win 8 will keep all my installed programs, no re-installs needed. That sounds really good.
