    So this deal is available only for those who will buy Windows 7 from now on right?
    I won't be able to update with only 15$ ... ?

    If they wanted to make everyone happy they would extend it to not only new pc sales but to software purchases of windows 7 as well. I won't be updating, but would be nice to have a cheap upgrade if I were to change my mind.

    Its a big cost for anyone bought a new laptop under Windows 7 when few months to be release for Windows 8. (As its add additional cost)

    Unless the laptop was bought last several years.

    So its better to buy a laptop with Windows 8 thus to save more money.

    They had (free?) Windows 7 upgrades with Windows Vista laptops, before it was released.

    I think this upgrades for the Pro version of the 3 Windows 8 releases (Normal, Pro and RT).
