Buy a PC for college and get an Xbox 360 for free!

Tony S

Students, if you’ve been struggling this past year taking notes on that sluggish laptop with no battery life, now’s the time to buy that new PC you need! For a limited time only (through 9/3/2011) Microsoft is offering a free Xbox 360 with the purchase of a qualifying laptop. To be eligible you only need to purchase a qualifying Windows 7 PC priced $699 or higher from the Microsoft store while showing a current student ID.


As you know, there is a lot of hype surrounding the Xbox 360 and Kinect - the motion sensing input device that enable users to control and interact with the Xbox 360 without a controller. However, ever since it was unveiled last year, Kinect has been used for much more than just gaming. KinectEDucation recently launched as a community-driven resource for developers, teachers, students, enthusiasts, and any other education stakeholder to promote the use of Kinect applications in the classroom. While the website is not directly affiliated with Microsoft, we have invited the founder of the website Johnny Kissko to come to our Redmond, Washington campus in July and present KinectEDucation in person.

Here’s a short video on KinectEDucation:

What are your thoughts on bringing the Kinect into the classroom? Is it the future?
