As with all these redemption deals, you probably want to check out the full Terms and Conditions before diving in as these things can sometimes seem more difficult when you dig under the surface.

Tempted by £60 worth of phone and £50 cashback?

Also, don't forget, the above Chromebooks are still eligible for the FREE 100GB of Drive storage for 2 years offer as well.

I've seen the gf absolutely despair with her mini.

There is a reason why they're throwing these things away free sadly.

Unless rooting and custom rom'ing can change it dramatically it's not much of an offer i think

really? That makes the 3g one less than £200, it's a bargain, I don't need a laptop but even I'm tempted

100mb per month, well that might last me anything from 5 minutes to an hour. I'll pass. I have a netbook with Linux on it if I'm that desperate for something really portable.

I think you can forget the 3g sim part of the deal, as you say, it's crap. You might as well get an Ovivo data sim and get their 750mb for free every month.

The cashback and free phone are not to be sniffed at though. :)
