Default windows 7 newbie question

Hi everyone please forgive my ignorance but I am looking to upgrade 2 computers to windows 7 and have been looking on ebay for it I have come across a listing there that says it can be used on 3 computers is this likely to be a fake or do Microsoft actually do such a thing as it would save me the expense of buying it twice any advice gratefully received thanks Chris

InfectionZero, actually Microsoft DOES sell three packs of Windows 7.

Chrisf-1: As long as it's from a reputable seller, it would be fine. Don't buy anything off of Ebay without pictures of the product for Windows 7. Otherwise, Newegg sells the Windows 7 three pack for $279.99, which is a savings of about $7 per copy if you were to buy the 3 pack.
