Hi Vetri

1 Check if suitable drivers are available for XP, even if you go Vista. You 
can consider duel boot in the interem.
2 What is the period you intend to use the new laptop.
3 In Vista, you can make it a part of your RAM,  any, pen drive you plug in. 
So, enhancing memory is no hassel.
3 It makes sense buying current than picking out dated technology. It may 
hurt in the future.
4 Christmas is not far, where you can get better deals out there. It will 
give you opportunity to check on the Jaws 9 beta. This of course, if you can 
wait all that long.
