Looking for a Way To Transfer Windows 8 to Another Computer

Hi, I'm looking to buy an upgraded computer and save money by not having to buy a new OS, so can I transfer Windows 8 from here to the new PC? The PC I'm looking to transfer from is Lenovo, so it already came preinstalled with Windows without any disc. So is there any way to download Windows manually ( without bootlegging it pref.) and then activate it?
