Today, we launched Chip In, a crowd-funding site to help students get a new PC for college. Just like a wedding registry, students sign up for the PC of their choice at www.windowschipin.com. Then, they can ask mom, dad, grandma, (Facebook) friends, and (Twitter) followers to chip in to fund the new PC.
Even better, we’ll chip in too. Microsoft will contribute 10% of the purchase price on select PCs, and for the first 10,000 people who get their PC fully funded, we’ll throw in a 4-year subscription to Office 365 University.
That’s right, future (and current!) college and university students…no more pen sets or successories from Aunt Jo. Now, you can ask for something you actually want and need to set yourself up for higher education success.
Go to www.windowschipin.com to get started.
