    Welcome to EightForums.

    The Sony upgrade for £14.99 is only for your New Sony.

    You can buy a £24.99 upgrade for your Windows 7 PC.

    i doubt it, one licence one use.

    unless your buying deliberatly a volume licence, which can cost anywhere from a few hundred for 5 licences to thousands for 25-50-100 licences.

    you won't be buying that unless your HP/Lenovo/dell

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.
