But you won't see it in the stores. Both companies have phones so you can talk about it.

Contact via online to check or find the sales phone# to call. XP is getting to be less of a sales draw but for the fact its simply what users want. Also, some newer laptops sold using Vista *MAYBE* converted to XP install if the vendor(maker) provide a regress OS(verify) or you buy yet a new retailed version of XP then hope to install it. Newer laptops may not support XP usually in the driver side, as no driver are current or directly for XP usage. keep that in mind. I suggest you visit IBM, now called Lenevo for their laptops as well as Asus and Acer brands or any of the brands out there.

I would recommend that if he needs XP

that he does get XP installed and don't buy a laptop with Vista and replace it with XP. If you look at most laptop dealers business class machines your more likely to find machines offered with XP.

Thinkpads are sold with an XP Pro OS preload, with a Vista license, so if he ever needs to "upgrade" to Vista, then he's all set.

my work and they come with the Vista license and we install XP pro. It's all legal as long as you are using only one of the licenses at a time.
