I just ordered a new MBP Retina. I have asked this question to Apple store employee and online Apple support and have gotten two different answers.
When I bought iWorks I purchased a single user copy. Can I deactivate it on my current MBP and activate it on my new MBP Retina, or will I have to buy a new iWorks?
You cannot install it on more than one CPU at a time. Remove from your old computer then install it on the new one. There is no activation/deactivation. You'll just re-enter the serial number.
