you can download it to any pc you go onto - just gotta log in to steam and download it.

I got the rockstar pack last week, the games are on both my main pc's

ok cheers, rep added

Well, you can backup your games in Steam from the File menu. Do that, then burn it to a CD and install it on your PC. AFAIK, it's locked to the account not the computer you install it on. So, no you don't need to pay for it twice.

If you want to play it simultaneously on both the laptop and PC then I think you may need 2 Steam accounts but I'm not 100% sure.
