HP is offering a 2011 Back To School sale with discounts up to $399 on custom designed computers.

HP has a variety of instant rebates available, depending on the computer being purchased.
There are two deals related to the Xbox 360. First of all, the Xbox 360 4GB slim console is on sale by itself for $199.
But another deal offers the Xbox 360 for free with the purchase of select computers running on Windows 7 and priced at or over $690. This deal is available to high school or college/university students only, proof of being a student is required. This deal expires on September 3rd.
