Question: Maple licensing model

This question is directed at Maplesoft employees. I am not sure if this is the best place to ask this question, but I don't know where else to ask.

I use my desktop machine at home and my tablet at university, so would like to have Maple installed on both machines. Currenly I have Maple installed on the tablet. The tablet is for portability, but at home, Maple is easier to use on the desktop due to the bigger screen and keyboard.

I can't afford to pay for 2 licenses, and I am not sure that many students can. Can Maplesoft change the licensing model to include a second license for $50? I bought Maple 18 for $132, and would be happy to pay $50 for a second license. This way, Maplesoft can make more money, and the student can use Maple in better ways.


EDIT: I also bought the Mathematics Survival Kit, mainly because it featured prominantly in the Maple webstore, and integrates with Maple. Information about the MSK were sparse, and so I was really buying blind, based solely on my good image of Maple. I found the MSK to be terrible, and because of it's association with Maple, tarnished Maple's image for me. 

I recommend Maple to people, but I also warn them about buying add-ons, based on my experience with the MSK, which is truly terrible.
