When being a refurbished system can you buy the OS recovery disc at the same time?

2009-07-19, 20:43 PM
Just wondering, I am new here and this is my first post, but I am looking at buying a refurbbed T400 or the T61. Not sure yet but thought I'd post this here. Thanks in advance!

You can make your own recovery disc set after receiving your Thinkpad.

If you order a Thinkpad with an XP downgrade you will receive a set of recovery discs for the OS which is not installed and you make your own for the one that is installed.
