Two Really Big Deals

Behind door number one:

If you’re in the market for a new PC, I’ve got a deal for you. For a limited time, the Microsoft Store is offering an HP Pavilion DM4 with Windows 7 Home Premium and an Xbox 360 Arcade for less than the price of the PC (you save $200). Ben will have a review of the DM4 up shortly posted a hands on review today. It’s thin and light – so you can take it anywhere – and the 14” screen size is big enough to see everything and small enough to go into a backpack.

Bear with me while I explain why this is an incredible deal: the $200 savings means that the PC + Xbox Arcade is $794. The PC alone is $849. And with Kinect coming, you have another great reason to pull the trigger on a full tech upgrade.

If you haven’t seen what Kinect is all about, check this out:

This offer is only available in the U.S. for a limited time, so if you’re sold go here and give yourself or someone you love very, very much an awesome gift.

Behind door number two:

If you’re a student and not in the market for a new PC, we didn’t want you to feel left out this summer. From now until September 6 we’re offering you the lowest price available on Windows 7.

If you qualify you can score one copy of Windows 7 Professional for just $29.99! To qualify, you must have a valid .edu email address and currently own a PC with genuine Windows Vista or Windows XP that can run Windows 7. Go here to see if you’re eligible and buy.

Also don’t forget about Microsoft Office Professional Academic 2010: right now, students receive a $79.95 special deal (go here) on that too—which means you can get both Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010 for just over $100.

While the above information is for customers in the U.S., the Windows 7 student offer is also available in Mexico, Canada, Australia, France, Korea and the UK. Please check for full details.

There are still other offers available, so be sure to also check to see if another deal is right for you.

Happy summer! Questions? You can reach me @winashbrown
