Can anyone recommend me a laptop that's pre install with windows xp. I'm thinking of purchasing a Ibm thinkpad t60.
Needs to
Burn CD
Wifi
Decent battery life
Inexpensive battery

Mainly using this as a workhorse. Bonus if it can play older games that don't require internet.

Check eBay, but I wouldn't use XP since it does not receive security updates.

You could always use an emulator.

Don't use XP (17 year old operating system, next year it will be old enough to drink)
You can use XP mode in Windows 7 very easily, or if your stuck with 8 or 10, you can follow instructions like these.

You can use any laptop and use an usb external drive for whenever you need it. They're like 20 to 30 bucks.
