Microsoft Graduation Gifts with a Little Extra Oomph!

It’s June and that always means Weddings and Graduations! I seem to always have one or both to attend. Although my younger brother won’t be graduationg college for at least two more years I thought I would share something I know he would FLIP over recieving.

Microsoft is giving students a great deal on tech savvy gifts for college with the return of the buy a PC, get a free Xbox offer! Starting now, students that purchase a new Windows PC for $699 or more, will get a free Xbox 360. With so many new ultrabooks and durable PCs on the market, it’s easy to find the right device for the student in your life. If a free Xbox just isn’t enough I don’t know what is!


XPS 13 Ultrabook

The XPS 13 Ultrabook builds on Dell’s focus on making thin and powerful laptops (like the XPS 15z and the even smaller XPS 14z or the Vostro V131 and the Inspiron 14z). With the XPS 13, Dell’s goal was to blend the mobility and responsiveness of other devices you’re used to with the power and functionality of a full PC. They ended up with a sleek system that offers a brilliant 13.3-inch display in a form factor not much larger than competitive laptops with 11-inch displays. Estimated Retail Price: $999


HP ENVY 15 notebook


Premium design touches, thumping Beats Audio with a volume control wheel, and HP’s brilliant Radiance display make the HP ENVY 15 notebook stand out in the 15-inch field. Estimated Retail Price: Starting at $1299






Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook

Ultra-light, ultra-thin and ultra-sleek, you’ll never get tired of staring at the Series 5 Ultrabook™. The Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook™ is amazingly portable and perfectly designed for a mobile life. Because it’s remarkably thin and light it’s easy to take it with you anytime and anywhere. Estimates Retail Price:Starting at $899
