While I did buy the laptop for my wife for Christmas last year I do use it pretty often myself (I only have a desktop- no laptop of my own). I couldn't see it being a problem to install it on any of our household computers.

If I was installing it at friends or family members houses that would be different.

You should be able to install on any other computer you own, not legally mind you, as the licence is for single use, but you have up to 6(?) installs before you then have to call in to get a new key for authorized use.

Well I have been pretty impressed with Windows7 so am upgrading my wife's laptop right now. As far as I can tell, there is no violation in the license agreement through my school by doing so.
She had vista, so I had the option to upgrade, but went with the complete reinstall instead.

This way I am wiping all of the crap that came preloaded onto the computer from dell and starting fresh.

Here's hoping everything goes smoothly and your wife is happy with the switch.

Haven't heard those words uttered since those parties back in medical school.

Yeah, the install went fine. She wanted me to intall the new OS on her machine b/c she liked it on the desktop a lot.

I am officially converted. All computers (desktop and laptop) are now running windows 7.

The football head certainly explains why he thought Windows 3.1 was "good."
