I have a Passport 2068 and after years of great use... I would like to pro-actively get a different laptop with "lower miles"...
Is there a nearly compatible Laptop model/make that would readily accept the Hard Drive from my 2068? I am running WIN2000pro and have alot of service oriented programs that would'nt survive a re-install of the OS in a different computer...

You need the model number - the COMPLETE model number. Be advised though, that there is no such thing as a "touchscreen compatible" or "touchscreen ready" laptop. That would assume that the touchscreen hardware is already there and all you need is the firmware or software to make it work. Not gonna happen. Touchscreens are much more expensive that regular ones and manufacturers are not going to put them on and not activate them. Either you got one or you don't. Dell, for example, makes some models both with and without touchscreen. The only difference is one letter in the model number.
The CPU speed alone is not enough to identify your Mac Pro model. You would also need to know when it was manufactured (for example, those made in mid-2010 can use cards that won't work in early 2010 or older models). This information is easily obtained from System Profiler (in the Apple menu, select "About This Mac," then click on "More Info...").
Once you know the specific model or date of manufacture, you can look through Apple Support articles for graphics compatibility information. Apple Support Search Try searching within these results for your model number or the year to cut down on the number of titles.
As long as you can plug it into the laptop, it should recognize the keyboard straight away.
With a laptop in mind make sure you get the usb version of the keyboard (that is if your laptop is modern enough to have usb ports).
