I have some data processing station that I want to equip with dirt cheap XP laptops with number keys.  

There is a lot of number keying and my area is prone to power outages so the battery (even if it only lasts for 10 mins while the genny kicks in) avoids me having to buy a battery backup.

I don;t care about drive space, graphics, screen size...


It needs 4 usb ports, a number pad and be able to run XP pro.  Any suggestions>  Hoping to $100-200 price range on ebay.

Alternatively, you could just buy some numeric keypads (see here:  http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=536&name=Keypads )

Then, you could use absolutely the cheapest, junkiest laptops you could find, without worrying about whether they have their own numeric keypads.
