Also is there is an upgrade program the we should be entitled to the extreme Core i7 for free considering the QX9770 (£1000) is worth more then the extreme version of the Core i7 (£850)

IMO, offering an option to buy the new motherboard and CPU without the case would be fair but I wouldn't expect Dell to offer the new CPU for free.  This isn't the first time new Intel chips are cheaper and more powerful than the chip it replaced and it won't be the last.  It's the nature of Moore's Law.
