Get online with a £24 computer!
If you’re on benefits, you can get a computer for just £24 along with a broadband deal from only £2.99 per month. This deal is only available ’till 30 June so make the most of it today!
Get Online @Home is an initiative from Microsoft and its partners to provide low cost refurbished desktop and laptop computers to support the Go ON UK digital inclusion programme – a push to improve Britain’s digital skills.
They’re also offering a £74 laptop with the same broadband costs. Both include Windows 7 Pro with Microsoft Office Basic – which, on their own, have an estimated retail price of £150. All the refurbished PCs and laptops are designed to do the basics well, with minimum spec of a 60 GB hard drive and a 2GHz processor.
According to the company behind the offer, 16 million Britons still don’t have basic online skills, and 800,000 of the most disadvantaged schoolchildren don’t have home internet access.
It could help get Britain booming because at least 75% of jobs now require online applications and the government wants 80% of submissions for Universal Credit to be online. Savings of £3 billion a year could be made if the digitally excluded shopped online, Get Online @Home said.
