New laptops with Vista

I am wanting to buy a laptop, but all new ones seem to come with Vista, which I do not like, and much prefer XP. Can anyone put me in touch with a distributor that still sells hardware with XP? It's ether that or I go for a refurb out of a 2nd hand shop.

Try Novatech

Novatech will sell you a laptop without an OS installed & at the same time sell you an OEM version of XP so you can install it yourself
