So long study habits, we hardly knew ye

Microsoft has announced a new back-to-school deal for students that will land the students a computer and an Xbox 360 game console for one low price. The deal is good even if handing a student a free Xbox 360 isn't likely to help their grades.

The deal will see the student get a free 4GB Xbox 360 game console with the purchase of a Windows 7 computer that costs at least $699. Microsoft says that the deal is good on any computer meeting that price point, but it recommends the Dell Inspiron 14r or the Samsung Series 9 machines for students.

The way the student is verified as qualifying for the deal depends on where the computer is purchased. Students ordering online will need an .edu email address. Students that buy in stores will need a valid student ID to purchase. The offer will start May 22 and the end date will vary by retailer according to Microsoft. Similar deals will be coming to France and Canada as well. 

“A hot new Windows 7-based PC with a free Xbox 360 is the ultimate productivity, social and entertainment package for students,” said Kathleen Hall, general manager of Windows Marketing at Microsoft. “In one shot, with this great offer, Microsoft is giving students everything they need for a successful new school year.”

It's not clear exactly how the free Xbox 360 comes to the buyer. It is likely that the Xbox 360 comes via a mail-in offer, but Microsoft isn't clear on that. There is a remote chance that the Xbox is given when the computer is purchased.
