Default japanese winxp in english?

Hey, I saw the new Vaios coming out and I really want one of the type H and type T. Ive been trying to find out if theyre coming out in the US but no one seems to know. My questions is if i bought a laptop/desktop from japan would i be able to use it properly here in the US? do you get to select your langauge for windows? because i was looking at the keyboards and theyre in english. ALso if you know anything about either of those coming to the US let me know.

Most computer hardware comes from Japan probably. Just get a english XP. I'd recommend building your own computer rather than buying one though.
