I've been looking at older threads here for a Laptop with XP on it for my nephews Christmas, (only reason is I will need to maintain it and I dont 'do' Vista)

Dell Vostro with an XP option looks good to me, any better suggestions?

Windows7 out in a fortnight that may be your best bet.
I don't think it is the time to be buying XP when Microsoft are saying that they will be doing away with it.When I don't know but worth thinking about.

It'l still work. I still use 98se as my main comp although I have 2 Xp home Desktops and 2 Xp home Laptops. I still like 98se and never have any problems with it. Just updated the CPU from 1600 Athlon, to 2500 Athlon Barton for £5 how many comps can you do that with
