    My MBP is arriving Friday, and I have got VM Fusion 2.0 ready and waiting so I can install the few Windows-only apps I need to use.

    However, whilst reading this forum, I have seen that I need to buy a full copy of XP Pro SP2, so I want to do that asap so it is ready for when the MBP arrives.

    Now how hard should it be to find XP Pro on a UK retailers site? I am flummoxed by the variety of versions and prices out there e.g.

    - OEM version
    - with key code
    - with COA
    - Upgrade version
    - prices have ranged from ~ £40 to £160!

    Can anyone confirm the version I need, and if anyone in the UK can advise where to buy from I would be very grateful.

    Thanks, Toby.
