  1. Yes, when you buy the game you are entitled to unlimited downloads. Simply go to the new computer, sign in to minecraft.net and you may re-download from there. However, any saves you had on the original computer will not carry over. To do that you'll have to locate the save files and copy them to a thumb drive or something to be transferred. There are plenty of videos on YouTube about finding the save files.

  1. Also of note, you can run it from any computer by simply logging in to minecraft.net and playing in browser.

    About save files: I don't know about your file system, but I'm running Windows 7 and my saves are located at "C:\Users\*user-name*\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves"

  2. You can play it on as many computers as you want. You're only allowed playing on the same account on one computer at the same time, however
