O2 axes broadband laptop bundle connection fee

Two-year subs only

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

O2 has zapped the connection fee it charges punters taking out a mobile broadband subscription with a new laptop.

The catch is that it's only offering a two-year contract, so you'll be paying between £25 and £40 a month for your connection and free laptop, depending on the model you choose and the airtime package you prefer.

That's £600-1080 all in.

Asus' Eee 1005H: get it free (sort of) from O2

The two machines now on offer are the Asus Eee PC 1005H netbook - a 10in machine based on Intel's previous generation of Atom processor - and Samsung's 15.6in R519, which has a 2.16GHz Pentium dual-core chip, 2GB of memory and a 250GB hard drive. Its retail price: under £400.

All O2's airtime packages come with unlimited Wi-Fi hotspot use and either 3GB or 10GB of 3G data transfer per month. The two 1005H tariffs cost $£25 and £35, respectively, rising to £35 and £45 if you choose the Samsung machine. ®
