2 PCs Are Enough for Volume Licensing from Microsoft.

Quote:
According to Microsoft, a total of two computers are more than sufficient to qualify a customer for Volume Licensing, Software Assurance and the adjacent benefits. Eric Ligman, Global Partner Experience lead Microsoft Worldwide Partner Group, revealed that, despite the common belief for some that a minimum of five PCs was necessary for Volume Licensing, the fact of the matter was that two machines were more than enough. The misconception comes from the fact that Microsoft sets a minimum number of five licenses that need to be purchased by business customers as a part of their Volume Licensing agreement. However, the Redmond company doesn’t specify in what manner users will deploy the software they licensed.

I chuckled...

If two (2) computers are more than enough to qualify for volume licensing... Assuming no partial systems are possible, then one (1) system must be enough to qualify for volume licensing.
