If you bought a laptop or computer from Dell after June 26, 2009 and it was installed with Windows Vista, you may be qualified to to a free upgrade to Windows 7.
Dell had said they would email users with information on when Windows 7 was available. Since Microsoft released Windows 7 last week, I thought I’d check on the Dell – Windows 7 Upgrade page to see if there were any updates. Although they aren’t advertising it on their website, if you log in now, you can order the upgrade DVD.
I ordered the DVD today (totally free) and received a confirmation email that the order was in process, but was not given an estimated ship date yet.
If you live inside the US, shipping will most likely be free. I have heard that users in Europe were paying upwards to $20 for shipping, which is still a lot cheaper than buying a retail upgrade.

Be sure to have your laptop or computer handy, as you will need to enter your serial number.
