    Ok, this could possibly go under buying tips but I dunno.
    I'm needing windows to run some different poker apps, so I'm wanting something pretty cheap. I won't really be using windows for much else, no games or anything, maybe some other 3rd party apps that wont run on OSX. Basically, I can get XP SP2 (which btw, I have no idea what the difference between SP1 and SP2 is) for under $100 on eBay, and Vista for around $125 (home basic). So... is it worth it to go with mac OSX light... err... I mean vista, or XP?

    **edit** Oh I'll be getting a MPB C2D

    Vista Home Basic doesn't have a lot of features, so I'd suggest either XP or the Home Premium version of Vista.
