Yes, this means your license is linked to your email address instead of the PC.

this shows you what to do to transfer it onto another PC - Reactivating win 10 on new hardware

You can only have it on 1 PC at a time.

Most laptops come with windows pre installed and until a new version of windows is released (if ever) then you likely get Win 10 on laptop anyway. Many big OEM have special win 10 licences that are tied to the hardware and can't be moved

I have to guess your install was an upgrade from win 7 or 8 to allow you to move it.
 
You can transfer windows license to new pc with Windows Activation troubleshooter.

Note - You can transfer license only between same versions of windows 10. So both computers must have either windows 10 Pro or windows 10 (Home) installed. You can't transfer license from Home version to Pro and from Pro to Home.
