New laptops are almost always using Vista now.. If you want one with XP, try checking at one of the online sites like "Newegg".
Maybe Tigerdirect.com..(Just my personal opinion but I like Newegg better though.)
If you go to some of your large local computer retailers RIGHT NOW, you might find a few that have XP installed. (I saw one at Staples a couple of days ago.) Your choice will be limited though..
There might also be some local computer shops which may have some refurbished ones as well.. But don't wait. They may not be there for long.
Hope this helps.
I currently have a desktop that I paid $100 for, to learn on. Now that I have learned a little, I would like to get a refurbished laptop to use when I travel. Both Acer and Toshiba were recommended, but what do I get and where do I find one that uses Windows XP. I need advice from experts.
