If you can prove your student status and head down to a participating retailer, picking up any Windows 7 desktop PC or laptop worth $699 or more will also bag you an Xbox 360 Slim edition with 4GB of storage.

“Are you about to head to college this fall for the first time? Planning another year on campus? Worried what next year has in store? Wondering what you’ll need, how you’ll succeed or what fun adventures will be around the corner? We can’t predict the future but here at Microsoft, we’ve come up with a way to help you succeed in the coming year, while building on the fun and friendships that are key to your life,” said Microsoft’s Kristina Libby of the deal.

The offer begins on May 22nd, and while retailers set their own end date, they all roughly end around the first week of September.

No word on a UK equivalent of the deal right now, though French and Canadian readers should keep their ears to the ground as Microsoft are said to be planning something similar in those territories too.
