    MAK are already available, through VLSC already when it became RTM.
    To share and post them at MDL is not allowed though.

    Anyone know after MAK activation, how much hardware change is allowed before the activation is lost? Everywhere says "significant hardware change" but it doesn't mean much. Is changing from hard drive to SSD going to invalidate the MAK activation?

    If you got your MAK via VLSC or MSDN/Technet etc, even if you change "significant hardware", you can always call Microsoft to get phone activation code.

    The MAK I used already exceeded the limit so I don't think that can be done in future, can it?

    In that case it could be problematic.

    Being honest I think it's been used up already.

    Not working for me.
