Buy a Dell computer get a free XBox 360?

I heard from a colleague at work today, that if you buy a Dell computer, you get a free XBOX 360? Has anyone heard about this? I just bought a top of the line Dell yesterday with a 27" LED monitor, and was never told a thing about this from anyone in Best Buy. The computer is still in the box, so if true, looks like I'll be going back to Best Buy. Is it true?

It's a Windows promo, not something that's just with Dell. I saw a bunch of commercials for it over the weekend. Buy a Windows 7 PC and get a free 360. I'm sure there are restrictions.

Supposedly, you have to be a student to get the deal. Darn. My wife took a few classes in Maya and 3D Studio Max at a local community college, and was able to get a student ID card. I'm wondering if they will give us a pass on this one. She still has her older one from undergrad as well(about 10 years ago) but interestingly enough, still looks the same in the picture. I guess its worth a shot.

Yeah, I saw the commercials too. The PC has to be $699+, but can be purchased from most major retailers, including Dell and Best Buy. Info can be found here: www.windows.com/freexbox
