Well assuming you don't want to use the same AdobeID for all of the computers/readers in question (which would be easy).
Then on your wife's laptop you will need to create as sepreate Windows User Account for yourself. You can authorize Digital Editions on that account with your AdobeID, and it will not impact what happens with your wife's account.
Thanks for the prompt reply!
From what I gather I should register ADE and my reader on the PC otherwise when I use digital editions on my Mac they won't sync?
That's correct the Sony Reader only appear as mass storage devices (ie USB drives) on Macintosh, and ADE 1.7.1 will not recognize it or authorize it.
Although once the Reader is authorized you can transfer files (except for "loaned" content - like from an on line Library) using the Finder.
