No you don't need to keep it How the hell would they know?! haha

It's a USB dongle. You're basically signing up to a contract like you would a mobile. To get the free laptop it's like an 24months contract minimum i'm sure. Plus, you'll be limited to whatever data tarriff you take out and get charged if you go over.

Personally, i'd just get a cheap laptop off ebay if you really want one, and buy a Pay as you go dongle.

I was thinking as a money making venture.

Sign up, sell laptop. Keep laptop money in account. Wait till end of contract and hopefully have money left over

EDIT: Just looked - it wouldn't work out cheaper, ever.

The value of the laptop is significantly less than the amount you are paying for the broadband though. They are shit laptops and you must sign up to the premium package.
