most of the packages are newer which may be relevant to you especially for
the base system
depending on how well that laptop is supported. Xfce differences are not
that many and the delta
is small enough for an upgrade via the net.

I don't know of official netinstall images for ubuntu. Instead of the
install cd you could try the beta liveCD
which is < 400M and has a GUI installer, although being a livecd it will
take longer to boot and be slower.
