Microsoft offering free Xbox 360 to students with purchase of select Windows 7 PCs Starting on May 22nd, Microsoft will begin offering free Xbox 360 consoles to students who purchase a new Windows 7 PC with a price tag over $700.
Says the company:

You can buy any kind of PC, although we recommend a few specifically for students like the HP Pavillion DM4 a great entertainment system on the go, the Dell Inspiron 14r a stylish powerful 14 PC, and the Samsung Series 9 a computer that has been described as looking like it is about to rocket off the runway. Ask Ben the PC guy, he has one! If you are still trying to figure out what might be the best option for you, you can use the PC Scout, an interactive app available on windows.com that helps you find a perfect match.

If you have a .edu email address you can purchase your new PC through one of our participating retailers including Dell.com, HP.com or Microsoft Store. If you don't have a .edu address or prefer to walk into a store, touch the PCs and test their features, bring your Student ID into Best Buy or any Microsoft Store retail location Check with your chosen retailer for additional specifics they may have in place.


Buyers then get a 4GB Xbox 360 free, with no strings attached.

The deal will last until September 9th, or "while supplies last."

Microsoft says the promotion will be headed to Canada and France, as well.

What if I purchase a selected pc and then return the pc for a full refund. Do I still get a free xbox 360?

Of course it works for college kids, just wait until you get your .edu email from your school.

So then buy games plus live...no but I like how they made Windows 7 for only 20$ with valid email.

Damn, it's a great time to be a student nowadays, isn't it? I mean you've got the girls, some internet, a Windows 7 laptop, never-ending booze parties, and now a shiny 4GB XBox to wow your friends when they're bored as hell. Wow, I want to become a college student myself!!
