Also, I'm kind of curious what happens when a PC dies and you can no longer log into it.

They can do the same thing apple does with Itunes. You can log into your account management and reset the activated computers.

Limit the amount of resets to 2-3 times a year or whatever, if need more resets you have to contact support.
5 machines can be active and you get 1 reset a year.

I know I use Itunes also and had to reset a few times already but I just brought that example up as a general idea of how they can avoid the issues with only 1 computer activated/authorized and that computer becomes unusable.
