SkyDrive and Windows 8.1

I have a Windows Desktop which I recently updated Windows 8 to Windows 8.1.

This past weekend I purchased the new Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro with Windows 8.1 preinstalled.

In going through and setting up the Yoga 2, I noticed that there is no listing in "Programs and Features" for Microsoft SkyDrive, although there is such a listing in "Program and Features" on my Windows Desktop. Given the tight integration between Windows 8.1 and Skydrive (I'm using the same Microsoft Account on both systems), can / should I uninstall the Microsoft SkyDrive Application. Don't want to leave an application on either of the systems that has no useful purpose.

Thanks.
