You can get the free Xbox when you order online using your “.edu” email address and you will need to buy through partnered retailers like, or via Microsoft’s online store. But if you want buy your PC the old fashion way, just bring your student ID to any Best Buy or any Microsoft Store retail to buy your Windows 7 PC. So when you got your Windows 7 PC and every checks out OK, you will get a free Xbox 360 4GB console which is currently selling at $200.
