Do you need a Orange Laptop ?

Since we just have two models of laptop in the line, there isn’t much confusion in choosing the one that suit our needs.

  1. Beginners and rare users of the internet would not require much of the download capacity. So Asus would be the best and economical since it’s available for free at even for a 3 GB plan.
  2. Frequent users and tech sways may not be happy with an Asus. May be the Compaq can hold better. But it’s available for free for those who can afford to pay a 24 months premium of £35 for a 5GB plan.
