Microsoft offering free 360 to US students

Spend $699 or more on a Windows 7 PC and get a 4GB slim for free

Microsoft has announced a deal in the US which will see any student spending $699 or more on a Windows 7 PC offered a free Xbox 360.

Any Windows 7 PC is valid for the deal, although Microsoft has recommended specific models as being particularly suitable for students. Purchases can be made online with a .edu email address, or in participating stores with a valid student ID.

The console being distributed is the 4GB 'slim' model released last year. The offer begins on 22 May in the US, and is also planned to roll out in France and Canada at an unspecified time.
