If I was to buy a new pc which came with windows xp home edition, would I need service pack 2 or would it already be installed?

New editions of XP should have SP2 already included.

I bought a full copy of XP Home earlier this year & that was the case.

If unsure, check with the vendor before buying, but unless the machine's old stock I would think that SP2 will be there.

at point of sale you could ask, however any new pc when set up the first thing to do is get all or any updates from the ms site.
