The main plus on this deal is the inclusion of office. However I'd still go via quidco / TCB and get that plus whatever vouchers or cashback the same vendors are offering and get a better PC from eBay.

\"THe pc includes a 15in screen and an 80Gb hard drive" ... jebus..! I reckon a good quality USB stick may be a better bet. Or why not one of the intel compute sticks, at least its modern. these sound like they are 7-10 years old. I bet the companys involved get tax vcredits and probably carbon credits for "recycling" computer tat.

take note you can get a cheaper better laptop online then this firm are offering without being elegible through state benefits,laptops are rubbish for the price beware look around first

They get the cashback (referral) fee that you'd normally get by signing up to said companies via cashback websites.

The value of the computer however is far less than this, so they are profiting from your naivety in thinking they are giving you a free computer.

Get the cashback by shopping via tcb or quidco and but the same spec computer and have cash leftover, bypassing this scam.

Two of the comments were right on the money, no pun intended. It's alright talking about cheap broadband but the line rental takes it up near £ 20 a month, for someone existing on £71 a week this has serious consequences.

I think the ISPs were limited to specific providers who were working with the refurb company.

Sure, you won't be playing modern games on these machines, but I didn't think it was too bad as a "first machine" for someone who hadn't used the internet before - hell, the laptop I'm posting this from at the moment only has 512Mb RAM and a 30Gb HD.

It works just fine for general web use, note taking, spreadsheets, and so on - and that's on an 8Gb partition running linux. I seriously can't remember the last time I booted into windows on this laptop.

Sorry if you thought this was a crap find, but when you get £71 a week to pay all your bills, heat, and eat, you honestly don't have much scope for a better machine !

(though personally I think these people are overpriced)Refurbish it yourself if necessary. Reinstall the operating system if it has the original licence key. Usually they have.If you are unemployed, may be a useful learning experience.Voted cold



Correction, sorry, Bt is actually a total of £261 at the moment but you get a free £40 sainsbury's card. But I don't think directsave includes their setup charge of £24. Directsave includes free evening calls. Bt have free wi-fi.
If considering this scheme, you need to look carefully at the numbers of phone calls you make and when you make them. This could be the deciding factor.
However I still think second-hand computers and laptops are easy and cheap to get and maintain, but maybe not for the elderly pensioner.

Hi adam2116, How is this relevant to this deal?

with the jobs situation i blame the english language

many people from eastern europe greeks, polish, romaninan etc
learn english almost as 'standard' be it through movies, or compulsory english lessons etc as a result most have good enough english to be able to come to the uk and find a job be it waitressing or cleaning or being a professional optician, dentist, engineer, plumber, pharmacist, etc

English being the 'universal' language means us brits in life dont need to learn german, or spanish let alone polish or greek

the problem then becomes this

just as an example
if 100 dentists from romania / greece / wherver else in europe come to the UK to work as a dentist
how many british educated dentists know enough greek/romanian to go the other way and work in greece? = NONE !!!
this flow should ideally balance

As tax payers we pay well over £50,000 for each dentist to go through university, the dental student also pays £9000 (to be £12,000) plus living cost and course expenses = £15,000 year

so over 5 years each dental/medicial student costs us tax payer £50,000 and the cost incurred by the student to be is approx £80,000

not against people coming to the UK to work, most do a fab job and are brilliant, but shouldnt these jobs be given to the native british people first and only to employ and welcome people from outside the UK only if these positions cant be fulfiulled by UK folks?

not only that people living and earning money from the UK are likely to spend the money within the UK and thus help support local economies

These machines are not energy efficient, very loud and generally around 6 - 8 years old. Good for someone with very limited knowhow otherwise avoid.



I agree, similar machines can be found on gumtree for around £40

Dell branded systems also such as optiplex etc. There are a number of companies that specialise in purchasing these from offices and refurbishing them, and selling them on or shipping them to third world countries.

Well TalkTalk most definitely do not charge such a ridiculous fee as that!

If you go over the limit, you get a warning. If that happens 3 times in a 6 month period they automatically add a £5 "boost" to your account which gives you a further 40GB, which you can then remove after 1 month if you want to.
