Default Win8.1 & Office question in the new tablets

Hi.

Would you know the answer to these 2 questions :

1. Could I use the OFFICE key that is provided with these new win8.1 tablets on my desktop PC? (and use it only there instead of the tablet) ?
2. Could the windows from the tablet (licence key) be used for a desktop ?

I'm looking at these tablets as a cheap source of OS & Office ... should yo be able to confirm this for me.

Thank you in advance.

Generally speaking, no. OEM keys cannot be used on non-OEM software, or often even on a different OEM's software.

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
