Opinions? I have a HP omnibook 6000 with a 60GB hard drive and just ordered a pair of memory cards which will upgrade from 128MB to 512MB. Should be more than adequate to run this old laptop out for several more years. I'm thinking of keeping the Y2K OS as I have all the updates up to SP4. I'm thinking that if I upgrade to XP which is already older or Vista which I hear isn't very good, then I might as well by a entry level laptop(cost wise). Any opinions?

Win2K is effectively obsolete. Microsoft stop issusing updates for it effective 13/07/2010.
New Internet technologies, ways of doing things, security software etc - some stuff is about in this department but it won't last forever. Realistically XP is a bare minimum from a security point of view.
