Product ID purpose in Windows 7?

I am deploying Windows 7 to multiple computers using one MAK for windows 7. I successfully ran sysprep and created an image. After imaging multiple computers i noticed that the Product ID is the same on all the computers? Is this going to be an issue? I was under the impression that the Product ID would be different for every system i image. Any Info would be appreciated....

You should have a MAK good for a certain number of machines. I believe it would only give you problems if you go over that number.

I use 32-bit IE which is compatible with Flash, and all the various websites I browse. So what is the 64-bit version for? What situations require 64-bit IE instead of 32-bit? Are there any examples of websites that require 64-bit IE?
