Do I need new signing keys from RIM, if I purchase a new laptop?

It's been 3.5 years, and I am finally going to get a new laptop.  However, I am concerned about what happens to the signing keys I received from RIM.  Do I need to acquire new keys for the new machine, or can I simply copy the existing keys over to the new laptop?

 

Any thoughts?

Best to reuse the same keys. You wont be able to update existing apps with new keys.
