IMO, the most significant difference between w2k and xp on a laptop is the
bootup/restoration times.  w2k bootup/restore took eons - they definitely
fixed it up on xp, which takes a couple/few 10's of seconds.

I suggest you try XP on the laptop.  Up until recently I had a pentium 3
700mhz laptop.  XP ran considerably faster than 2000.
