 Post subject: Windows XP in Europe?

I am planning to buy an X300, however rather then Vista I want it to come shipped with XP.

Living in the Netherlands I can never find a shop which sells a X300 with XP. Unlike in the US where you have a lot of items you can configure for you specific X300 (like OS for example)

Has anyone any info on whether it is possible to get an X300 with XP in Netherlands or other European country?

thanx,

my X300 shipped with both vista business and XP SP2 recovery media.   i believe this is now standard policy and that yours would also include XP media.   if it does not, lenovo support will likely send it to you at no charge but you'll want to check with them to be sure.
