Are you looking at buying new or used. New laptops with XP are getting rare. Besides Dell offering laptops with downgrade rights, Lenovo/IBM offers some models with XP Pro, and I believe HP does, as well.
There are lots of deals to be had on used laptops. Check some of the notebook specific forums buy/sell sections.
As for the number pad is concerned, you are looking at a laptop with a 17" display. I do not recall any units with smaller screens that have a dedicated number pad. Targus makes a USB number pad. It can be used with any computer.
With more info, we might be able to give better suggestions.
