     does this match google’s laptop price?

  • http://www.facebook.com/VexingEnmity Paul Welch

    That’s sucks I’m buying a $2300 laptop with windows next week but I’m required to buy it through my school for my degree program.Its a standardized system for everyone in my degree program so I have no choice. I’m still running on a launch xbox and its on its last leg >_>. Is there any way I can still take part in this promotion even though the system is coming from my school?
    The school is Full Sail University.

    What a good way to get students to fail out.

    I made a $1100 PC running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit about a month ago so that means I am unable to partake in this offer. That sucks.

  • http://twitter.com/MajorMarley Marley

     I purchased a 700 dollar laptop like 3 months ago, so I can’t partake in this offer either.

     We are Microsoft. We don’t have an awesome operating system like Mac OS X. Instead we will give you a gaming console!

       Haha, kind of true, they are few years behind Mac OSX, but Win 7 is a decent OS, but still its windows.

      im pretty sure its to counter apple giving away ipods with their computers.

      • Anonymous

        Doubtful. The Xbox 360 and the iPod don’t compete with each other. It would more sense if they gave away a Zune, but that product is dead, so…

        Sony could give away PSPs with their VAIOs

        • Ulises_m16

          They’re not giving free 360s to compete with iPods, they’re giving free 360s so people buy more PCs, kind of like apple is giving free iPods so people buy more Macs.

       “The offer is available in the United States starting May 22, so you’ll have to wait a few days until you can rush into the store. End dates vary by retailer so shop early! It’s also coming soon in France and Canada.”
      I hope it’ll be available in italy too :P

    I live in Brazil, no free Xbox for me. :(

      Me too, no free Xbox…

    Good way to go up against Apple. Better deal than paying $999 and up to get an iPod Touch for free. I just hope the students using this offer will be responsible with their time management. My rule in college is to play Xbox only on the weekends.

     what about buy xbox360 and get a free pc?
    i think pc is garbage!

  • Anonymous

    cool deal  Now only if Microsoft would actually make some actual games instead of the current rumored youtube and cnn channels coming….. Game console Microsoft! Your game console haz no games! Nearly June and you have not released one single exclusive….Where is Mechwarrior 5?  Crimson Skies 2?  A REAL Banjo game?  Killer Instinct?  I hope you have a better showing this year at e3, because if you completely focus on Kinect again, you can be sure that I will not be supporting you next generation because I have no doubt you are going just to release the “Xii.”

    You want my hard earned cash, earn it with quality games.

    Best buy is participating the the promo but I bought my laptop 04-09-11… (Never mind the fact they were constantly trying to figure out reasons not to honor the deal.. I ended up being 1 day out of the return policy lol) Was going to return the laptop and simply buy it again. But Best Buy has a strict return policy.
