I recently purchased a laptop with the Spanish layout on the keyboard.  Ive never used this kind before.  Is there much difference between it and the English layout?

GustavoB that "US Keyboard" is a Dvorak layout, not the standard QWERTY.  The main difference between the two are where the symbols are located.

So the English and Spanish layouts really arent that much different and using the Spanish one should be OK?

I use a Spanish one when I visit my wife's family in Mexico the @ and the " are the two things that drive me nuts.  You should be able to change the keyboard layout using Control Panel \ Language.  This will make it act like an English keyboard, the problem will be that the key caps will not have the correct characters on them, not a problem if you're a touch typist, big issue if you're a hunt and peck person.
