It is a pretty slick deal. It would be interesting to see if they use this to pad their sales though...

"Students will be able to find the one that’s right for them based on the features, color, size and price they want."

I laugh at people who buy a computer based on the color.

While choosing a PC based on its colour is laughable, the same can't be said about the people at my local Futureshop (basically a BestBuy for those outside Canada) trying to convince me that a particular laptop is the best fit for me because of its colour, despite the fact that its specs are way below what I said I needed...

Well let's say you have a few computers with the same specs, but different cases or color, you're saying it's wrong then to choose what look you like best?

But yeah, choosing on color alone would be stupid.

Back to School??? School is just winding down... not starting.

Its probably aimed at college students, and for them the summer term is beginning, I am one of them.

But that is one crazy promotion.
