Default Hi, question about MBox 2 and iLok?

Hi, I'm going to be purchasing a Mbox2, the non-factory, non-producer edition, and I was wondering if I need to purchase an iLok for any of the stock plugins? If so, it's almost worth it to buy the factory edition as those damn iLoks are 40 bucks at sweetwater.
I just got a new macbook pro, and will be running it on the xp installation I just got up yesterday, thanks to apple, until everything is ported pc side.

You'd be a fool not to get the factory bundle with the mbox.

You're going to need an iLok down the road anyway, that is if you plan on using any plugins that actually sound good.
