How do I get a licence?

My sister needs windows Xp for her Macbook. What is the cheapest legal way to obtain a copy of Windows Xp?

Is it cheaper to just buy a cheap PC Laptop?

If you buy a cheap PC laptop, the license that comes with it will only work on that particular laptop. You can't just transfer the XP license over, unfortunately.

I bought a copy of XP for my MacBook Pro at Costco for $99. I've seen it at BestBuy for $129.

I saw that "Microsoft Windows XP Home SP3 for System Builders - OEM"

Is that a consumer version? WTF does that mean?

This is one reason I like OSX it is easy to know what you are getting because there are only two options "OSX" or "OSX for Servers" it is easy.
