If I purchase a Matlab Home, it says I can use it forever. I want to get a copy but my laptop is getting old and in the next year or so I will upgrade to a desktop.
If I get a license now, can I transfer it to a new computer, or is it a single installation?

I have at least 9 activations on my Mac, but that is on a Standard license.
I run virtual machines under Parallels, and have activated multiple OS-X virtual machines, multiple MS Windows virtual machines, multiple different Linux virtual machines, and of course the non-virtual machine itself. For ease of administration, I use the same MAC address for all of my MS Windows virtual machines, a second MAC address for all of my Linux virtual machines, and a third MAC address for all of my OS-X virtual machines. This reflects that sometimes I need to run an OS-X virtual machine at the same time as an MS Windows virtual machine, to cross-check MATLAB behaviour under different OS classes; each active VM needs its own MAC address.
In my experience, when you run under Parallels, MATLAB does detect the difference in MAC addresses. When I have forgotten to manually set the MAC address of a new virtual machine, MATLAB has told me that I am out of activations -- a situation remedied by changing the virtual machine's MAC address to one of my already-registered ones.

You will be able to transfer your license to a new computer. That is either doable by yourself in the license center of your MathWorks account, or you need to call MathWorks Customer Support / Installation Support for this.
