Microsoft has come up with a cunning plan to put a new spin on the "free PC" saga. From today, customers choosing a mortgage with US-only MSN HomeAdvisor will receive a computer into the bargain. Through the "Get a Loan. Get a Free PC" Spring Giveaway, the software giant is offering 1000 Concentric Systems AOpen PCs worth $900. These PCs come with Cyrix MII 300MHz, 32 MB RAM, 3.2 GB hard disk, Windows 98 and 14" monitor for punters taking out a loan of $125,000 or more. Poorer customers, who take out a loan under $125,000, will be fobbed off with a $132 Casio. There are 300 of the Casio PV-200 PC Synchronizations to give away, equipped with 128 x 128 dot-matrix screen, 2MB memory. And not forgetting the stylus and serial cable. "This is the first time an online estate service has given away something of this value to home buyers," said Ian Morris, MSN HomeAdvisor group product manager. What, the Casio? ®
