    I'm selling my MacBook because I just bought a new MBP. I have it listed on Craigslist and my selling point is 4GB Ram. I also have Windows XP on there ran with VMWare Fusion. Is it possible to sell it and leave windows on there? I was just going to get rid of it but if I can safely leave it on there I could attract more buyers...

    Thanks.

    As long as you don't have anything on there thats personal.

    AS long as you transfer your original system discs for XP along with the product key and documentation, than yes - that would be legal. You might want to clear out personal data though obviously.

    You should include your XP disc/license and your Fusion license with it then as well

    Edit: see above :)

    I would be willing to give them the Fusion license because I'm gonna try out Parallel, but a guy at my fire dept gave me the xp disc and license. I don't know anything about windows registration process honestly. Any suggestions MacDawg?

    Due to the fact I don't have the XP disc how do I clear out my data so they have a clean Windows XP?

    Don't rush to get rid of Fusion. I used Parallels and switched to Fusion to try it. I love it so much better than Parallels. I even deleted Parallels from the computer. As far as windows goes, I would be deleting it as it is a pirated copy and you don't want it to come back and bit you in the a&$ :D

    Since you do not have the original license, you should not be selling XP - that's piracy and a violation of Microsoft's EULA

    Thanks for the input... I'll make sure I hang on to Fusion while I'm testing P4
