    Wonder if anyone is familiar with how Window licensing works. I currently have a copy of Windows 7 that I bootcamped on my MBP. It's a legit copy, as I had it on my previous laptop. I am planning on getting another Win 7 license, but wondered if I should hold off on it until I swap out my 750g HD for a SSD (when the price goes down that is....). Will the license still be legit if I install it again it on the SSD or will I have to get another license?

    Thanks for your response!

    If you have a license and you remove the drive that it is on (not using it again) you can re-install using the same license. The license is valid for systems that are in operation. No need to buy another unless you plan to install it someplace else and use both.
