I also have to replace a laptop. It was attached to the network when we got
hit by lightning. I hate that Vista is the only choice that  laptop 
are giving us these days. So I'm planning to check to be sure that
XP-compatible drivers are available for the prospective laptop's hardware.
Then I'm going to reformat the disk, install Windows XP Professional, and 
install the proper drivers instead. It'll eliminate the junk trialware, too.
