Win your favorite Windows 8 PC with #MSFTback2school


Back-to-school time isn’t just about buying glue anymore. It’s a season of rebooting, starting fresh and getting back to business for all of us. What better time then, to get a new PC? If it’s been awhile since you last bought one, you won’t believe how things have changed. From 8-inch tablets to big screen all-in-ones, there’s never been a wider variety of PCs for back to school.

And we want to help get you one. 

Which PC are you hoping to take back to school? Answer that question, and you could win it in our #MSFTback2school Twitter sweepstakes. Just follow @Microsoft, tweet us the name of the PC you covet most, and include the #MSFTback2school hashtag. We’ll choose one winner to receive the PC of their choice, along with a one-year subscription to Office 365 Home Premium! The sweepstakes is open to U.S. residents 13 and older, with no purchase necessary. The complete rules can be found here.


Even if you don’t win the sweepstakes, you can ask friends and family to help crowd source funds for your dream PC with the Windows Chip In program. Simply select your favorite PC, create a profile and ask your friends and family to contribute to your goal. We’ll chip in the first 10 percent! Once you reach your goal, we’ll ship your new PC to you with Office 365 University included.

Need some ideas?  We’ve put together a slideshow of the best PCs for back to school, along with some other items for your backpack.
