In theory that shouldn't disable your old retail licence key so you can still use it on other systems.
Then that sounds fine if a laptop usually has its own key locked to its own drive (or that's how Toshiba does it anyway) and the boxed Win7 I have is separate - I'd always have one spare 7 key left. Now it's all about getting a release date for SP1 before the summer deadline and then I would update the lappy any time, possibly after a RAM upgrade if there's no GPU power.
If 7 got 20 updates at the last patch Tuesday then I'd hope they were nearer to a more cumulative SP1 than something that brought in radical changes. I could update the lot tomorrow and ride out the bugs but life's too short to have to keep reinstalling after hackage and other exploits that MS wait a month to fix.
