    Hi I am off to the States in May and im very paranoid about losing the pictures i take due to memory card fail so im looking for a laptop. if i buy a cheap XP one for £40 with a tiny hard drive can it be used to transfer pics from the camera memory card to another portable drive effectively bypassing the laptop itself (apart from the fact both things will be plugged in to it?)

    Cheers

    Yes, although do check it supports the correct type of memory card, an old laptop isn't likely to have support for the latest standards like SDXC
