Is that possible? What I don't understand is, is your address tied to your computer?

No, your wallet contains the key associated with your address. Transferring your wallet.dat file will allow you to access those funds from another computer. (That's also why it's so important to make sure you never ever let your wallet.dat file get stolen.)
