    Can I use the same Microsoft account on my new laptop when I get it?


    I am going to be purchasing a new Windows 10 laptop to replace the laptop with Windows 10 I have now.
    I will be disposing of the laptop I am using now.
    --- Even though it runs good, I want a modern laptop with more zip and modern specs.
    I have a Microsoft account, can I use the same Microsoft account on the new laptop when I get it?

    Yes, absolutely. I use my MS login on all of my PCs and laptops (8 at present, though the number shrinks and grows as machines come and go here at Chez Tittel).
    HTH,

    AFAIK there's no limit on the number of PCs that can use the same account ? The only limit is after 10 PCs are on the same account, any new ones added won't be able to use the account on the Store.

    Although I haven't purchased a new Windows 10 laptop I can see the my questions have been answered. Thank you.

    That limit was allegedly updated to 2000 devices and @Brink posted image iirc showing that on hs device.
