Microsoft's blog today highlights an amazing offer that could spell ruin for our nation's young scholars' study time. The company says it's giving away a free Xbox 360 to students who purchase a Windows 7 PC that costs over $699.
Beginning on May 22, if you buy any kind of Windows PC over the price point at a participating retailer, you'll get a free 4GB Xbox 360, no strings attached. The offer is available only in the United States right now, but similar deals are planned for Canada and France. The offer's end date varies by retailer, so get in line now, or plan to buy one online at Dell.com or through Microsoft.
Plying students with free game systems is a good marketing ploy, but I worry for the grades of our nation's students, know what I mean?
So who's going to take advantage of this offer? Anyone out there clamoring for a free 360?
