I just bought a student priced key for my laptop which I use to take to school. Within the next year, I am planning on building a desktop. If I buy a second key, this time a professional via The Ultimate Steal, will it last that long. I guess my question is (prolly a stupid one) do the keys ever expire?

Nope, they do not. The only way a key can become worthless is if MS decides to manually deactivate for some reason or another (illegalities). However, you are a student and purchased the key fair and square within the parameters of the deal, so you should be good to go for as long as you use W7.

Nope, they never expire. They can be blacklisted by Microsoft, but if you don't share your key with anyone, that won't happen.
