    There's a * after FREE (Windows 7 FREE!*). Check the bottom of that page for the explanation of that *. The * always means there's a catch and though it could be a tiny little sentence it could still make a big difference.

    That's right, if you buy a PC with Vista, or just the Vista o/s - you will get a "free" upgrade to 7.

    Otherwise, nobody would be buying anything just now and Vista pre installed laptops would stay on the shelves.

    Unfortunately , if you bought Vista previously - you don't get the free upgrade.

    You might find a cheaper way to get just 7 on it's own if you look around - unless you want both o/s, of course.

    if you were to go out and buy windows vista right now, some places offer the free upgrade when it releases even without a computer purchase, there will however be a 9.99 s&h charge for the upgrade to ship to you and so on and so on...
    ps. this offer only applies to select markets... if you look around and do a few quick searches, you can find all the info in interviews with ms and this forum...

    yes i remember when my partner got her new HP lappy and she took advantage of the free upgrade to win7 for JUST $9.99 turns out it was US dollars and ended up costing 30 odd bucks NZ which i thought was a pretty stink thing to do
