I previously wrote about Redten Broadband which offered broadband for £20 a month and included a free computer. They aren’t around any more, but Orange have just begun to offer a new deal where you can get 2mbps broadband with a free laptop for £15 a month.
You’ll need to check out the PC World website and then visit your local store. The 2mbps broadband comes with a 2gb monthly cap which is fair for the price of £15 a month; you’ll probably get a similar cap on other services of the same price. You’ll get a Ei Systems 3103 laptop for free including Windows XP Home, 256MB RAM, a 40GB hard drive and 15.4" screen.
Alternatively you could have a £350 discount on a more expensive laptop; you can get a Centrino Core 2 Duo laptop for £200. Not bad at all!
You are locked in to a 24 month contract if you take this deal – this compares with an 12 or 18 months which is standard with most ISPs.
If you’ve used this before, please do let us know your experiences with it.
