@Windows tweeted earlier yesterday “Today we’re excited to announce “Chip In” where students can crowd-source funds to purchase a #Windows8 PC
This funding is aimed towards students who will be attending college this year, and the benefit with this is funding over something like Indiegogo or Kickstarter is that Microsoft will be involved in the purchase of your new computer. The good thing about having Microsoft involved in your funding is that when you meet your goal for the funding, Microsoft will pay 10% of the new computer, and ship it out to you for free. You will also be given Microsoft Office University Edition, after you register and confirm you are a student by using your schools Email.
So, if you are a student who is heading to college this year, and you are in need of a new, portable computer, and you want your friends and family to contribute together for a graduation gift, this is the deal for you. You can use the link below for more information.
