Default How does Alienwares free Windows 7 upgrade work?

Title says it all, if i get a new computer next month and its Windows vista 64 bit home premium, will be getting a free windows 7 64bit upgrade? I've checked all over and i see nothing about this, yet alienware says it on there site. I have a feeling theres a catch in there somwhere, like you have to fill out something in order to qualify but that somthing was never offerd to you.

Come with the Upgrade and an activation code or somthing for when its released?

And what about 32bit and 64bit, are they gonna rip you off and send 32bit windows 7 when you have 64bit vista?

No. They give you the equivalent upgrade.

Windows Vista 32-bit Home Premium -> Windows 7 32-bit Home Premium
Windows Vista 64-bit Home Premium -> Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium
Windows Vista 64-bit Ultimate -> Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate

etc.
