Tech: Microsoft “Chip-In” Student Buying Program

I know most students just got out of school and really don’t want to think about the next school year but I have to tell you guys about Microsoft’s new “Chip-In” Student Buying Program. This new program from Microsoft helps students get a new Windows 8 PC to use when you go back to school.

Microsoft Surface

So how does it work you may ask????

A pilot program this year, Chip In lets students with a valid .edu email address crowd-source funds to help them purchase a qualified PC of their choosing from MicrosoftStore.com. Microsoft will “chip in” 10 percent of the purchase price, and for the first 10,000 students to fully fund their PC, Microsoft will also “chip in” Office 365 University at no additional charge. Along with Surface RT and Surface Pro, the Lenovo IdeaPad 13Acer S7 Ultrabook and HP ENVY x2 are all great options for students at any level – check out the full list of PCs at  www.windowschipin.com! The program begins today, June 4, and runs through September 1, 2013. For more information check out Microsoft News Center or the Windows Experience Blog.
