I keep an old IBM ThinkPad around for phone stuff, although I'm almost exclusively a Mac user. For me, that's the simplest and most cost-effective solution to doing updates.
I can concur through exhaustive hours experience on my 2008 MacBook 13" Aluminum Unibody with Parallels 5 & installed the Parallels' Tools for Window XP SP3.

I think I'll use the latest build of VMWare, hoping the speed is comparable for Windows VM boot times.
