I use Cubase 8.5 on my main Computer and on my two MacBooks Pro I use Cubase Elements 8. I bought two licenses of Cubase Elements because only one license is available for Cubase and I do not want to carry with me the dongle. This is - compared to Logic, Ableton Live - a disadvantage especially because the Cubase versions are different and so are the features (Cubase 8.5 - Cubase Elemenst 8). It is also hard to understand that I cannot use Expression maps in Cubase Elements as this is a very important feature when writing for orchestra.
I hope that Steinberg can move some steps ahead to get the two versions of Cubase closer to each other. One should be able to start working in Cubase and continue in Cubase and back. Or: make at least a second, better more Cubase licenses available on a soft licenser, I even would pay extra.
