    A question about using the product keys for Office. Currently all three keys of my copy are in use, (myself, sister & mum,) but i'll be a getting a new MacBook soon to replace my iBook. If i stop using Office on the iBook, can I install Office with the same product key on the MB?

    If so, is it just like a switch, (i.e. once installed on MB, automatically cancels the iBook version,) or do I need to get stuck in transferring/deleting files?

    What version of office are you using? IIRC, Office simply checks when you start up that the key you've entered isn't in use anywhere else on your local LAN so as long as you're no longer using it on your iBook you should be fine. To be fully compliant with the license agreement, I think you should delete it from the iBook though.
