Not having yet read the piece, I assume the "upgrades" are the same thing
that you'd get if you tried, today, to warranty a 5 year old 250GB Seagate
HD: They'd send you a 750G or 1T, simply because they don't have anything 
smaller in stock.  (If your system is embedded, and won't talk to larger
drives, their apologies. :-)

It's likely the same thing happens here: we don't have that older gear,
so you get the newer stuff with our compliments.
