Free laptop and broadband deals give you the chance to break free of wires and get online on the go. Because laptops are intended to be used on the move, bundling them with mobile broadband makes perfect sense.
Free laptop deals
Why limit your broadband use to your home? The packages offered by Three, Virgin Media, Vodafone, O2 and EE mean that you can connect to the internet at broadband speeds no matter where you are (subject to mobile phone network coverage). To find out the mobile broadband coverage in your area click onto the providers coverage checkers and enter your postcode.
The free laptop deals above come with a free dongle that can be plugged straight into the USB slot of your laptop or have a 3G broadband SIM card embedded inside.
Dongles are small and discreet and ready to go instantly. Alternatively you could opt for a broadband-embedded laptop which removes the need for a dongle altogether. We'll be explaining how these work below.
Broadband and free laptop savings
Considering the amount that the laptops on offer are worth (upwards of £550) there are genuine savings to be made by combining your laptop with a home or mobile broadband purchase. These offers also make it incredibly easy and quick to get a new laptop without a big lump sum to pay. As most free laptop deals are on 18 to 24 month contracts, you are given the time you need to pay off the laptop deal without paying excessive charges in interest.
Free laptops with in-built broadband
Some mobile broadband providers have bypassed the trend of offering laptops with external USB modems by offering netbooks with built-in mobile broadband. This takes the hassle out of using your free laptop to connect to the internet. With nothing to plug in, your mobile broadband experience is more seamless than ever.

Considering an iPad instead?
In many ways, the rise of tablets, such as the iPad, has seen laptops become somewhat superseded by the newer technology. Tablets dispense with traditional keyboards for a touchscreen that recognises inputs you make with your fingers directly on to the display.
Broadband and free iPad deals are now much, much more common than broadband and free laptop deals, reflecting the latter's fashionable status and a sea change in people's web browsing habits.
