I am wondering if I uninstall Office 2007 with 3-user licences from a laptop, does that mean I still have 3 licences left?

I read somewhere on the net about this. Could someone confirm?

Thanks guys.

If it's not an OEM then yes. OEM licenses are linked to the specific machine. If you have a Microsoft Office 2007 licence for three machines though, and it's not OEM then you should be ok.

It is not an OEM.  Cool, if this is the case, would I need to be connected to the net for Microsoft to know I have uninstalled it on one machine and thus eligible to install it on another?

Yuu would just need to ring up microsoft and explain and they would re-activate it when you install it on the new computer

There's no need to call Microsoft. You only need to call their help desk if you try to activate the software and you have exceed the number of activations.
