Want Angry Birds for nowt? From tomorrow you can try and get a copy from the Currys- and PC World-branded versions of Intel's AppUp, the chip giant's netbook-centric online app store.

You'll need an Intel-based computer running Windows of course. While AppUp is intended for netbooks, since the Atom chip is thoroughly x86 compatible, downloads should run on any PC.

Indeed, Currys and PC World owner Dixons said the offer was good for "netbooks, laptops and desktops".

You'll need to be quick, mind. Dixons said it'll only give away 15,000 copies, and the giveaway ends on 31 March 2011, or sooner if the download count passes 15,000. ®
