Yes, there's a catch...

Want a MacBook Air for £949? Pop over to PC World's website and order the skinny Apple and an HSDPA wireless broadband package from carrier 3 and the retailer will knock £250 off the price of the Air.

Catches? Well, to get £250 off, you have to pay 3 £35 a month for the next 18 months - a total of £630. There's also a data-transfer limit of 3GB a month on the deal. 3's HSDPA network delivers speeds of up to 2.8Mb/s. The USB modem and SIM come bundled with the laptop free of charge.

Oh, and you'll have to wait until 11 February before you can take possession of your Air - right now the deal is for pre-orders only.

The truly budget conscious - or Apple haters, for that matter - can get a Windows laptop for free. That's an Intel Celeron-based Advent, but our choice would be Packard Bell's 7in Eee PC-like XS20, which you can have from PC World for 50 quid. Other PCs range in price from £50 to £300.

But of course, you've still got to cough up that £630 for the next 18 months.
