The Hunger Games ultrabook to be sold in Microsoft Stores

The Hunger Games is pretty much the most anticipated movie of 2012. Based on the best selling novel of the same name, the sci-fi flick takes place about 100 years in the future in a dystopian society. The book and movie centers on a woman, Katniss Everdeen, who has to compete in a televised dual to the death with others for the pleasure of the elite in this society and the revulsion of everyone else.

The movie is due out on March 23 but now Microsoft is helping to promote the movie by selling an exclusive version of the HP Folio ultrabook PC at its Microsoft retail stores as well as on its online store. The HP Folio has The Hunger Games movie logo, along with the District 12 logo (the community where Katniss Everdeen comes from) laser engraved on the ultrabook's case. Microsoft is selling the PC for $1,049.

In addition to The Hunger Games PC, Microsoft will be one of the sponsors of a US Hunger Games movie mall tour where several of the film's stars will make public appearances over the next several days. You can check out the list of locations at the Microsoft Experience blog.
