    Not really sure where to post this....can I install Microsoft office on a portable drive and use it on my iMac and MacBook?

    I guess what it comes down to is do I only need 1 license per install or do I need 1 license for each computer?

    Nor really trying to cheat the system or anything but don't want to have to buy a second copy of the software if I don't have to since I can only use one computer at a time.

    I think you are safe as MS Office allows many installs as long as only one is used per time - such as you are planning to do.
