Orange offers Eee PC with mobile broadband

£25 a month for the laptop, dongle and 3GB data

Orange has launched a range of packages that bundle mobile broadband access with laptops, including Asus's Eee PC.

The Connected Laptop package starts at £25 and includes an Asus Eee PC 900 alongside a dongle for mobile broadband access and connection to Orange's Internet Everywhere tariff that offers a data allowance of 3GB and 100 texts.

The mobile provider is also offering a laptop deal for small businesses, but rather than an Eee PC, business users can choose between an HP 6730s with either an Intel Celeron or an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, or the HP 6730b, also with a Core 2 Duo chip. All three laptops come with Windows Vista.

Small business users will receive their chosen laptop and will be connected to the 'Business Everywhere' service, which is available on either a £35, £40 or £45 tariff. The two cheapest tariffs include a dongle while the most expensive comes with an embedded Orange SIM. All three tariffs feature 500 minutes of Wi-Fi access per month and a 5GB data allowance.

Purchasers must sign up to the packages, which will be available from August, for 24 months.

Francois Mahieu, devices director of Orange UK, said: "Over time, we will be looking to expand our offering even further, with more suppliers who are at the forefront of laptop technology, making it even easier for our customers to connect to the internet seamlessly, whether it is for work or play".
