The answer is no for your Windows XP question. I was pretty sure that most manufacturer's would ship to Canada, maybe check it out?

The only reason you'd need a different ... Windows XP for is because of the licensing. You just need to buy another license to make things legal.

But if you don't care, then go ahead and install it. Won't make a difference.

This looks good

AMD processor

512MB of ram, least i would go with a laptop

80GB hdd

15.4" screen

Though its refurb it's still a good price

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...ku=G153-6510GZ

This is also decent

Depends if you want better battery life

From Dell: http://configure.dell.com/dellstore/...P1300C_FEAT_E1

Really good for the price and as good as just about all of the others. Could even upgrade to 1GB of RAM and have money left over.
