Microsoft jumps Apple on back to school promotion. This is a nice deal if you have an .edu email address.
REDMOND, Wash. — May 19, 2011 — Microsoft Corp. today announced a new offer for students who purchase a new Windows 7-based PC.

Best Buy, Amazon, Dell, HP and the Microsoft Store are honoring this but each one has different rules. Best Buy for instance has it where only laptop purchases of $699.99 and up are eligible.
HP has you paying $690 and up for a PC but only certain PCS are eligible...

We bought a 610-1030y from Best Buy this weekend and they wouldn't let us get the free XBOX. I told my wife we should order online through HP but of course she didn't want to have to wait for it to be shipped so we lost out on a free XBOX.
