If you haven't authorized more than 5 computers it's no big deal.

IIRC, you need to know the MAC addresses, so de-authorizing all then authorizing the remaining ones ( one Apple ID family, so its simple for everyone, and for syncing your purchases you kinda need to do it that way ) has been simpler and more convenient than rooting around for MAC addresses. Or something like that - De-authorizing all has been simpler.

Yeah, it's easier to nuke them all and just authorize the ones you need to again.

Note you can only deauthorize all once per year...

Right, you can only do it yourself once a year, but if you need to do it more than that it can be done. As the article I linked to states you will have to email Apple to get 'r done in that case.
