Default What should I get...?

Okay, So I'm looking at getting a new laptop, and am going to buy all software seperatly because I can get a student discount.

Which Windows XP OS do I want?? I have XP professional at the moment, and like the look of Media Centre. Which one do I want??

HP lappys are cool, we have 3 in our family. My HP has a nice ATI graphics card so I can play a lot of the new games (Black Hawk Down etc.) on high settings.

Media Center for me. It's awesome and I heard somewhere that the media center is BASED off of pro! So, amazingly, Media Center takes my vote.

+You get a COOL skin! lol
