    Buying a Laptop - Buy Now Pay Next Year? 2nd Feb 08 at 9:46 PM
    Im looking to buy a laptop where you buy now and pay next year. I know that Dell had this offer on until mid January and i was gutted i missed out onit.

    They now have a new offer but its Buy Now pay in May2008, which is too soon.

    Does anyone know of any other decent companies which do the same sort of thing?

    Also, does anyone know how often the companies do this? By this i mean does anyone know if Dell will be offering this deal anytime soon.
    Thanks.

    I hope ive post this in the right place. Forgive me if i havent.

    I don't know which deal you're talking about so can only answer generally. However, Dell have been hammering out some great deals over the last few weeks on most of their line and doing so week after week. The deals tend to change slightly each Thursday but if what you want isn't there now then just wait until next Thursday and see if what you want comes up then.

    Yep get a 12 months interest free credit card...

    Or you could try the AOL/Carphone Warehouse offer where you get a 'free' laptop when you take out a Broadband contract. At least this way you will spread the cost...

    Not sure if its the same as it used to be but Dell used to call it buy now pay later but you actually had to pay a 'fee' for this something like £30 that was not mentioned until you had waded through pages of finance applications !
    So you have not missed out on anything by missing their 'offer'
    WHOOOOSHHHHHHHHH……..
    Blimey what was that ?
    That was your life mate
    Oh I wasn’t quite ready can I have another go ?
    Sorry mate only one per person.
