Windows 7 Ultimate Full Version 64 Bit (Promotional)

Running Windows 7 RC -- would like to upgrade to retail version-- I found this web site offering Windows 7 Ultimate Full Version 64 Bit (Promotional) for $180 -- what is the difference in the promotional version verses standard Windows 7 retail version.

Windows 7 Ultimate Promotional Version
This was given out at a launch party. Does anyone know if this carries the same certificate of authenticity as the retail version? And if you installed it, does it work exactly the same as if you had installed a retail version?
