File->Save as? And it offers .eml as an option.

But my version only lets you do this to one email at a time, so it's not much use if you want to do it to 100s of emails.

Easier maybe to forward the emails?

Read this tutorial which explains DBX files (what Outlook Express uses for storing emails). If you copy the correct DBX files across to your laptop you can import them into OE on that machine.
