Moving Office 2010 to a new computer

My version of Office 2010 allows me to install it on 3 computers. I shall soon be replacing my existing XP laptop with a new Windows 7 laptop. In the meantime, can I install Office 2010 on my existing laptop and later 'remove' it to alow me to use the same licence on the new computer? If so, how do I do this?

If you have not used your three activations yet, sure.  If you have, then you'll have to uninstall it on one of the three PCs where it is installed in order to legally use it on another.
