AS i have already said a low grade laptop is not going to be the best Media Center to use. It will be slow to load and slow to transfer. You might want to consider something better than a old laptop to use as a MCE.

It might be. But those dont have much room for storage. A Media Center is the place where all teh media is stored and then distrubited. So you wouldnt be able to store much on a EEEPC.

No. Only Open Office. You might get lucky and be able to use it thru Wine.
