That is a tough one! In the UK there are some very special deals where you join an ISP for a broadband connection at about £20 a month and they give you a laptop for almost free. BUT you have to take out a contract with them for 24 months so the laptop is not exactly free! A bit like the deals you get with a mobile phone where the phone is 'free'. The trouble with laptops is you really need to take out insurance for about £70 a year to cover breakages. They are rather prone to being sat on and so breaking the screen. Desktops are so much easier to repair and upgrade.
