    I started off using Bitcoin Core on my desktop machine quite happily a year or two ago, but I'm currently in a position where I can't use my desktop computer and instead have to use my laptop. I'm doing a full sync on the laptop right now, but I'm wondering what I should do with my wallet.dat file? It is encrypted and password protected.

    Would it break anything if I had two computers using the same wallet assuming I keep both of them fully synced?

    I cant see it making much difference. You need the seed/key to access it, they promote backing it up so you can add it to another wallet should something happen.
