Each copy receives a unique serial number which is assigned to a single artist. ZBrush may be activated by internet, email or phone. Internet deactivation is also available from within the software, making it easy to move ZBrush between computers. In the case of hardware failure, a license repair system allows removal of the lost activation so that it can be reinstalled on a new computer.
Single User copies have a "Home Use" rule which allows them to be installed and activated on two computers (such as a desktop and laptop or a work computer and home machine), provided that both copies aren't actually run at the same time.

Note About Graphics Cards:
ZBrush is software rendered, meaning that ZBrush itself is doing the rendering rather than the GPU. Your choice of GPU will not matter so long as it supports the recommended monitor resolution.
