We have the opportunity to get a free laptop, but I don't want to add the expense of internet connection to our monthly bills... any suggestions, advice?

Seriously, I know laptop computers are expensive, but I don't get your logic here. There's a TON of free internet available, dialup internet costs next to nothing, and worst case scenario you can always sell it for a profit. Why look a gift horse in the mouth?

If you mean that you get a free laptop IF you sign up with a certain internet company then it's not really free, is that what you mean?<br><br>
If you mean a totally FREE FREE no strings attached laptop, then I'd definatly get it, like others said you can pick up free internet certain places and there is other stuff you can do with a computer besides getting online.<br><br>
also if it's a free free one and you don't want it, you could get it and send it to me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

nowadays wireless internet is just about everywhere and usually at no cost. If you do need to or want to get internet at home there are companies out there that offer it for less than 10.00 a month for dialup.<br><br>
If the comp is free then what question is there.

What kind of internet do you use now? We just upgraded ours and if we got more computers they'd be wireless but using the same internet we have at no extra charge.

hmm, okay, sounds like we should get it, then. i hadn't thought of cafes, to be perfectly honest.<br>
It's his sister's computer... I'm not sure if there are any strings attached yet, but definitely not monetary ones.<br>
At this point I only use the computer at owr, friend's house, or library.<br>
Thanks, all!
