welcome to the forum!
according to microsoft's press release, you must purchase from a participating retailer in person and present a valid student ID.
To take advantage of this offer, students or parents must provide valid student identification as defined by the participating retailer. More information about this offer can be found at http://www.windows.com/freexbox.
after clicking around in the above links, it sounds like you can shop online through best buy, amazon, dell, HP, and the microsoft store using your .edu email address. to purchase in person, you can do so through a local best buy or microsoft store using your student ID.
so, to answer your question, no, you can't buy through lenovo.com to be eligible for this offer. you would need to purchase a thinkpad through the microsoft store or amazon following whatever fine print details are attached to this offer.
for further questions, i suggest checking out their facebook page linked above and contacting microsoft directly since it's their promotion.
