Is Motion like FCPX that once you buy it, you can load it on different computers for? I have two laptops that I use for editing (one tricked out MBPr for heavy lifting and a MBa for light work). Can I have the software on both, paying just once? Thanks in advance.

Yes you can download it to all the computers you own if you work alone. In a shared workplace every workstation has to have its own license.
A link to the license agreement is on the right side of the app store page.
