First it seems you cannot buy an XP downgraded machine directly from Lenovo anymore, even from the business portal (this is for business use). Can anyone confirm this ? Our company hasn't bought from lenovo directly before. We have always bought from DELL but have had some problems with them recently. I suspect that Lenevo is still delivering XP machines to certain clients.
Second, I found many resellers with XP downgraded T410's available and decided on a T410 25148JU (available from 90 sellers on shopping.google.com). Can anyone confirm that, for this exact model, that the machine comes with XP installed (Rather than with Windows 7 and rights/or CD's for XP-pro). I don't want to spend hours having to reinstall XP and all the drivers; I want XP ready to go.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi aparker, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
The 2518-4JU comes with Windows XP installed:
Sales of PC's with XP preinstalled officially ended on October 22nd:
But as you have found, there are some left in the channel. XP downgrade rights also still exist for some systems:
And as you point out, certain clients have the mojo to get what they want.
Hope this helps!
