£19 Windows XP Laptop & Wireless Broadband Deal

If you are looking for one of those netbooks on the cheap and don't want to fork out a hefty sum from the onset, then why not buy this fantastic Elonex Webbook from the Carphonewarehouse for only £19 per month.

The webbook is perfect for those who lead a busy life. Great for surfing the internet and accessing your email.

You only get 1GB worth of data transfer but that should be more than enough for mundane tasks (and as long as you don't Facebook or watch youtube frequently).

The Webbook 10.2-inch uses (opens in new tab) a VIA C7-M processor running at 1.6GHz, coupled with 512MB and a 80GB hard disk drive but no optical drive - all in a 1.3kg pint size chassis.

Add to this Windows XP Home, a one year warranty and three USB ports and you have a cracking deal which ties you in a two year contract though (ouch).

There's a delivery charge of £14.99 and £19 per month - this means that the overall cost over the life of the contract reaches £471 over 24 months.

Now, should you plan to buy a new 3 Mobile phone, you will be able to get 2000 extra 3 to 3 UK minutes simply by mentioning the details required.
