If you have a copy of XP laying around then get a Vista Laptop and throw XP on it. Vista costs quite a bit more than XP so get it with the laptop at the cheap price.

Make sure Vista restore CD works before you throw XP on it though. There may be an extra charge to get an actual restore CD/DVD .

if you're computer savy then you can consider doing a dual boot laptop. i have XP and Vista on this laptop. its a little crazy how you have to do it but there are web sites with good directions. a vista install CD is required though...
