I say downgrade in quotes because i prefer XP over vista and believe its much better, from personal experience and use.

I bought a Laptop with Vista Installed, i bought a copy of windows xp.

Will removing vista and installing xp make the computer unusable in any way.

no not as long as you don't have a problem during the install such as a power failure but its a laptop so you don't even have to worry about that either

Verify that your devices have drivers for XP.
