Definitely Windows XP. For now it's safer to go with Windows XP because Vista may not be much desired by many people and there are slight compatibility problems and is now going through a phase with many complains. If you want to get Vista, I would recommend another year or 2.
I would recommend Vista, I am currently using vista, and I have no problems with it. The security pop ups could get annoying sometimes but overall its ok. Hence Microsoft has just released SP1 for Vista as well fixing the bugs in Vista, not all of them but major bugs they have fixed. One thing you must ensure is, if your laptop is compatible with vista. If its not then you will hate vista since it will be running very slowly. Almost all the compatibility issues are being resolved, when vista was first released it had alot of compatibility problems but now it seems as most of the programs are running fine. One thing to consider is since Vista came out XP prices went down, so if you are looking for save money then go for XP, but if money is not a problem then i would recommend Vista.
If you don't know, choose Vista. It's the changeover that is so difficult for people and hardware. But if you are not already stuck on XP, start with Vista and you will be up to speed a lot faster in the end.
