Microsoft wants to give you a MacBook Pro

Q. "What's the perfect gift for a long-term commitment?" A. A MacBook Pro tinted the color of an Office for Mac icon.

Microsoft is running a pretty cool giveaway right now called Mac Office Loves You. The prize is none other than a 2.53Ghz 15" MacBook Pro with custom PMS cover and a copy of Office 2008 for Mac.

To enter you must be a registered account holder of Twitter.com. You can enter one of two ways:
  • Follow @officeformac, or
  • Retweet @OfficeforMac and include the hashtag #officeformac. Only one retweet will be counted per person.
Two winners will be selected, each one getting a MacBook Pro and Office. The contest is open to the US and Canada (except Quebec). Only two entries per person will be accepted.The contest ends at 11:59 p.m. PT on February 25, 2010.

What's the reason for the giveaway? Just because, apparently. "Microsoft Office for Mac loved the Mac community since way back when,'' the site states. Or perhaps they're trying to clear out all their copies of Office for Mac 2008 to make room for the new version. Either way, it's a pretty sweet giveaway. Let us know if you win!

Thanks to reader Edsel for the tip!
