I think its a promotional type of thing. On the Lenovo website, if you buy a thinkpad then you will receive free windows 7 when it comes out. I would make sure by calling compaq.

Newegg advertizes it with Windows Vista Home Premium as the operating system. Click on the Newegg link you posted, then on the specification tab next to the customer reviews tab.

I would venture to say no, it doesn't come with a free Windows 7 upgrade.

If it doesn't say it, then it doesn't come with W7 upgrade. I'm sure they'd advertise that at the top of the specs list.

Don't choose a computer based on whether you get W7 with it or not. Choose it based on your needs.

Agreed.
