This printer is compatible with Windows XP, but is not necessarily designed to be "portable". It must be plugged in to standard 110 volt power in order to work.

No, But you can do that if you print the odd numbered pages first and then turn the pages over and place them back into the paper tray and print the even numbered pages. Tricky, but it works.

It doesn't come with a USB cable, but I bought a basic USB printer cable for $5 at Big Lots and it works fine!! It's very easy to connect. This would be a good printer for your needs.
