It's more a case of older games choke on newer versions of Windows. As the KOTOR/Vista thread has demonstrated, you can get KOTOR working in Vista/Windows7 with a bit of tweaking - but there is the odd person that has difficulty. Rather than buy a lappie with a 4 year old graphics card that would never get updates, you're better off dual booting into XP if KOTOR compatibility was a huge obstacle.
Either that or you could simply get XP as your default install, though that means you'll miss out on any DX10/11 goodness from other games
