I recently bought a new phone, and managed to get a free laptop with it! I picked up a few tips on the way, so hopefully I can help you a bit. If you want to get a free laptop with mobile phone, then one of the things you need to think about is which laptop you want to get. There are a wide range of different deals, but not all laptops were created equal! (I almost found this out the hard way by getting the wrong one)
The brand of laptop is important when choosing a mobile phone deal. Better brands often produce a greater build quality and hence faster computers. I got an Acer, which was great. Some of the most recognizable brands that can be found on free laptop deals include Acer, Sony and Apple. If there’s a particular brand that you like, don’t be afraid until a laptop from them becomes available, I had to wait a bit.
If you want to play games, then getting a laptop with a good graphics card is important. Often, gaming laptops are more expensive and are difficult to find on free laptop with mobile phone deals. On the higher priced contracts they may sometimes be available though, so keep an eye out if you’re a gamer. I wasn’t too bothered about games so I didn’t have to get a top of the range laptop.
Other features of the laptop that you should check include the hard drive space, processor speed and RAM. The size of the screen is also important, as this will affect how portable the laptop. If you can find online reviews of a particular laptop then this will help you to make an informed decision. I used a lot of reviews to make sure I was getting a decent deal.
Aside from the laptop itself, it’s also important to think about which mobile phone deal you want to get. Make sure you check the amount of minutes, texts and bandwidth that you get each month on the contract. You should also check which mobile phone handset you will receive with the deal, as free laptops are sometimes only available on lower priced contracts.
