Dumb question but is it possible to install the OS to another laptop?

Which OS to which laptop? - the answer is most certainly 'no'

Well, it's possible to install (sort of) Pinebook OSes with, e.g. chroot and qemu-aarch64-user-static onto, say amd64 laptop running amd64 linux and run some programs. But it's probably not really what you want to do, especially because pretty much all ARM software exists on amd64 anyways.

If by "Pine OS" - you meant KDE Neon - yes, you can grab an amd64 iso from there and install it on amd64 laptop (but Neon isn't really a Pinebook OS):

A more correct statement might be, it is all linux software that happens to be compiled for the ARM processor (for use on the Pinebook). Since linux is source code portable, you should have no problem finding compiled versions (of KDE Neon, for example) for the AMD/Intel processors.

The OP might want to give distro watch a look:
