Microsoft is once again offering a deal for North American college students: buy a new PC from select retailers for $699 or more, and receive a 4GB Xbox 360 free. So much for productivity and that physics midterm. Participating retailers in the US include: Best Buy, Dell, Fry’s, HPDirect, Microsoft Stores, and NewEgg. Canadian students should check out: Best Buy, Dell, Future Shop, Staples and The Source. For those who decide to wait on the release of Windows 8, rumor has it the new OS will launch around June 2 and Windows 7 users can upgrade to it for $15. Thanks, Neowin.
