>I doubt whether ASUS' contract with MS would allow preinstalled W7.

No suspect ASUS's contract is the same as Dell's and every other OEM's contract with MS: they can pre-install W7 Pro (OEM) on any machine until the anniversary of the release of Win10. (After this date you'll have to go to a small system builder who still has licenses on the shelf.)

If you look on Dell's UK site under the solutions for business you'll find many systems that come pre-installed with Win7 Pro but come with a Win8 license and reinstall media - obviously if you want reinstall media for Win7 you have to create your own from the installed image...
