Sony is offering students and faculty members a free PlayStation 3, PS Vita, or "$200 off your choice of PlayStation gear" with a selection of laptops starting from $746.89.

All the models ship with Windows 7 and you'll be able to take advantage of the $15 Windows 8 upgrade program once Microsoft's new operating system starts shipping.
