When I started college, I didn't have a computer. There were computer labs on campus, so it wasn't as big of a need as it is now. Today, more professors are utilizing the internet to post grades and class assignments. More classes are offered online to give students flexibility in their schedule, too. Also, there is a mountain of information available online. Today's college students greatly benefit from having a personal computer of their own.
Right now, you can head into participating retailers like Best Buy, Microsoft Online, and more and get a free Xbox 360 (4GB) when you purchase any Windows 7 PC worth $699 or more! This offer is available to students between the ages of 16 to 19 years of age who are attending college or getting ready to attend college. You must have either a valid student ID or an student email address ending in .edu to qualify. This offer is good from May 23, 2011 through September 3, 2011.
For those who are not interested in a free Xbox 360, they are also offering 10% off your purchase of a PC instead. (Either way, this deal is a win-win for the new college student!)
Head over to Window's Facebook page right now to learn more about this exciting offer!
