With the aim of bringing more people online, Microsoft is now offering free PCs with Windows and Office pre-installed to TalkTalk broadband customers. The offer is part of Microsoft’s Digital Inclusion Scheme (Go ON UK) offered through a dedicated website called getonline@home.
The package is SimplyBroadband which carries a 12-month contract, provides up to 16mbps download speed and doesn’t have any limits. However, once you factor in the line rental for a year as well as equipment costs, the total cost of ownership for the first year shoots to £217.40 or just over £18.
Since it is a free PC, don’t expect any top of the line specs. It is a refurbished dual-core model with an 80GB hard disk drive, a new keyboard and mouse, running Windows 7, a flat screen display and an optical drive. There is also an option to upgrade to a refurbished laptop as well.
