Question Laptop Decision

Hey all, I was wondering if you all will help with me decide if this laptop is worth buying.

$799.99 In store price after the "Instant" $70 Savings.
And there's a $200 Mail-In Rebate.

$851.99 Is the final price out the door, but since I work at Office Depot, My price is:

NEW HP Pavilion dv2416us 14.1" DualCore Laptop Notebook - (eBay item 150154949402 end time Aug-28-07 07:59:47 PDT)

Thanks in advance for any advice.

--------------

Some questions I also have is, obviously this laptop out preforms mine so I'd assume games would look allot better, my laptop ATM gets pretty good FPS.

Another MAJOR question, I heard some Vista machines you can't put XP on? How would I go about all that, because Vista sucks *** and I want to go back down to XP, does anyone know how I can DUEL - BOOT Xp and Vista? So I have both?

Thanks!

--------------

* Sale ends on the 1st so I need to buy soon if I choose too*
