XP Mode vs. Downgrade to Windows XP Professional Preinstalled

When is it better to have Windows 7 Professional with XP Mode and when is it better to have Windows 7 Professional Bonus - Windows XP Professional downgrade, with media?

Re: XP Mode vs. Downgrade to Windows XP Professional Preinstalled

If you need to run graphics-intensive programs in XP, like games, video, modeling, etc., then you should have a physical installation of XP to run (downgrade).  The downgrade bonus allows you to run XP instead of Windows 7.  If not, then you are better off with XP Mode from within Windows 7.
