Summer vacation is nearly over, so you young rascals out there are probably trying to make the best of the little free time you have left. But if you can spare a moment between all the partying, the wandering around aimlessly and carefree and the not thinking about school, maybe we can smoothen your return to the classroom.
Show of hands, whose school life would be so much easier with a neat, little on-the-go entertainment/education machine called a tablet? Oh, but mom and dad refuse to buy you a slate and upgrade the old, raggedy desktop or laptop. Don’t be mad, they’re doing the best they can.
And thanks to Dell, they can now bundle select PCs and tabs and get the latter for free. Here’s what you do. First off, you sign up for Dell’s “University” program, confirming you’re an eligible student. Then, choose a $700 or up Windows 7 PC, laptop, desktop or gaming PC from the generous list here.
Bada bing, bada boom, before you know it, your shopping cart will be filled with a complimentary Venue 7. Yes, the same Android-running Venue 7 that used to cost $250 and is nowadays $150 if purchased on its own.
Way to put the cool back in school, Dell, and just to be clear, students, here are some of the larger computers that come bundled with a free Venue 7 tablet:
