Microsoft gives students free Xbox with PC purchase

Microsoft

We normally like to round up the latest and greatest tech deals in one daily post, but we couldn't resist sharing this particular one right away: Microsoft is offering a free Xbox 360 to any student who purchases a Windows PC priced at over $699.

(Msnbc.com is a joint venture of Microsoft and NBC Universal.) 

The catch is that the student has to purchase the computer after May 22 through a "participating retailer." (A list of the retailers who will honor the offer can be found at www.windows.com/freexbox.) Student status will also need to be verified — presumably with a .edu email address — in order to seal the deal. The end date and quantity limitations for the offer vary based on each retailer.
