Microsoft is putting their own spin on summer vacation by offering college students a FREE Xbox 360 console. Students who purchase qualifying Windows 7 computers costing $699 or more will receive a brand new Xbox 360 system, free of charge.
Students with a valid .edu email address can take advantage of the deal through online retailers. For those who prefer to go hands on with their electronics before buying, they can present a student ID at participating stores. Microsoft says it's as simple as that, no strings attached.
The offer starts May 22 and runs through September 3.
