Consequently, after 31 October 2018, Panasonic will no longer be able to ship any systems with the OEM downgrade facility option with pre-installed Windows 7 Professional from Windows 10 Pro. Instead, from that date onwards, all current models from Panasonic will be available with pre-installed Windows 10 Pro.This notification is part of Panasonic's continuing commitment to provide managed and planned transitions for our customers.

Panasonic recognizes that many corporate organizations and institutions are standardized on Windows 7 Professional and are currently transitioning to new operating systems. Our constant goal is to help drive down the total cost of ownership of our products and services by providing managed transitions for our customers.
