    I am a resident of an EC country and will be in the US soon on
    vacation.

    As US prices of XP Professional are considerably cheaper than in
    Europe I plan to buy XP Pro while in the States.

    I notice that most , if not all , of the Web sites offering XP for
    sale do not ship outside of the North American continent.

    I am , therefore , wondering whether , having bought XP in the States
    , there would be any problem with the subsequent Authentication of
    this OS when I instal it back home .

    Can anyone advise me on this ?

    No, there is no problem with activating outside the US, unless you live in one of the restricted countries (north Korea, Cuba etc) There are a couple of US sites that will ship to Europe. Eagle computers is one of them

    If you go to Pricewatch and click on the retailer, it will tell you if they ship internationally. Prices are invariably cheaper
