Hi guys,
Saw the following:

Free laptop through Carphone Warehouse but does anyone know what date it starts? Doesn't seem to say unless I am being totally blind.

Thanks Dax

"Doesn't seem to say"

No, it doesn't - at least not in so many words.

But what it does say is "register now - with no commitment - and you'll be advised when the offer is launched".

Free the laptop may be but a Celeron processor and they say it is worth £450, some one is having a laugh.

they certainly are. but not everyone is as knowledgeable as those on the server and the 5/8th guy on the street doesn't know a celeron from a celery

Minimum contract with AOL for 24 months, think i'd rather have the Celery...

They will give you a laptop that is at least 3yrs out of date.

There is some utter rubbish being written here. The laptop is perfectly good and they retail for around £550/£650 but with a better processor. For the use of 99% of the population the Celeron processor is more than adequate. If the offer costs no more than normal broadband, even with a 2 yr contract (you will find that many people have been with their provider for 2+ years, including myself) and if you are happy with AOL (as many are) the laptop will be great as a primary use machine or for the children. Don't listen to processor snobs.

PC World/Orange now CPW/AOL. Appears that they are all doing similar offers, perhaps as a students incentive!.

No doubt other companies will follow, but watch out for fixed contract terms.

Thx for all responses.
Not bothered myself about the processor as the laptop will be used by the kids keeping them off mine.

I agree,

Firstly iv been with AOL for nearly 4 years and its perfect for my needs,

The laptop itself would be perfect for students and school kids,

ALso general websurfing and e-mail,

Obviously you wont be able to play high spec games or do full 3d rendering, but for schools kids and such its perfect.
