Default Want an Xbox? Buy a Notebook!

"The deal is designed to combat the Apple promotion which offers a free iPod Nano with MacBook purchase during the same time period. In a pure dollars and cents view, the Microsoft deal is better because the starting price is much lower and the price of an Xbox 360 4GB is $50 more."

Being a student is hard and Microsoft hears your pain.  That is probably why they have decided on being generous in their promotion to let students get their game on with a free Xbox!  No, this is not some chain email where you have to forward to 50 friends, and you do not have to become a fan of some random group on Facebook.  All you have to do is buy from a select group of Windows 7 notebooks.  Maybe this is a drive to keep notebook sales up as tablet sales continue to sky rocket.  Maybe they figure that there are a lot of students who have turned in their PS3s and need a new gaming console.  Whatever the reason, it looks like a fair deal for anyone looking for a new computer and does not mind some fun on the side!
