Answers :

First, if you are still running Vista on your desktop then you will need to buy a license for the laptop. Does the laptop have a WinXP on it now? If so, go here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/upgrade-advisor.aspx and run the Vista Upgrade Advisor. If not, determine the hardware specifications of your laptop and go here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/system-requirements.aspx Compare your laptops specs to those listed for the version of Vista you wish to install.
No, you can not use vista here. Xp should be slow but ok.
