    If your laptop has Windows 8 on it you wouldn't need your Pro key. If you're attempting to do a fresh install on your Laptop you'll need to but Windows 8.1 to get the key.

    Short answer: No.

    Longer answer. Still No. Assuming MS treat the installation of Windows on their own hardware as other laptop/tablet manufacturers do, then the key is tied to that machine and only that machine.
