Remember that when you're using RISC OS, you won't be using anywhere near all of the unstable nasties in XP - running one application exclusively, and not really "using" Windows that much at all, and therefor it'll hopefully be more stable.

Of course, the Alpha laptop is also outstandingly bad value (You can get similar specced laptops without the VA stuff for less than 600 quid - which leaves a lot of dosh left over to pay for RISC OS, VA, and MD's slice.)
