Microsoft have announced a new deal for American students who spend $699 or more on any Windows 7 PC, offering a complimentary Xbox 360. Say goodbye to productivity and hello to procrastination.

Microsoft notes that any Windows 7 PC is eligible, however, the company also has recommended systems specific for students. Purchases can be made with a .edu email or by presenting a valid student ID at participating retailers.

The 360 model in question is the 4GB slim revealed at last year's E3. The program launches on May 22 and will follow in France and Canada at a later date.
