    Free Pentium PC, 19" Monitor with 8mb broadband @19.99/month,3 yr contract 3rd Nov 06 at 8:55 AM
    I read a PC Pro article last week, that showed that:

    " Redten Internet is raising the stakes in the highly-competitive broadband market by offering a free PC with every connection.The company will offer a Pentium 4 based system to every customer who signs up for three years of 8Mb broadband, costing £19.99 per month. Redten - the sister company of Watford Electronics - promises to upgrade customers to a 24Mb line, when the BT exchanges are upgraded."

    They are now taking orders and I've put it on the grabbit board as red ten are upgrading the 17" monitor to 19" for the first 10,000 customers who sign up.

    More details at Terms and conditions are here (pdf) and essentially the main requirement is that the PC only becomes yours after the 3 year broadband contract ends. If you end your contract early they can ask for you to send back the pc, in good condition, at your expense. There are various packages available and you should check out the small print, but otherwise it looks like a pretty good deal if you need a new computer!

    FREE PC worth over £500
