PC World and 3 have been running an interesting deal on laptops this month. Sign up to 3's mobile broadband for 18 months and you can bag either a free Advent lappy or £350 off seven other machines.

But what if the laptop of your desires is the MacBook Air? Well, PC World has just announced that you can use the deal to get a handy £250 off the envelope-dwelling Apple – bringing it down to a far more attractive £950.

Mind you, you do have to sign up to 3's £35 a month broadband plan for 18 months – a total of, er, £630 outlay. For that you get its super-fast HSDPA laptop modem and can download a stonking 3GB of data each month.

Not bad if you were looking at a 3 modem anyway, but bear in mind you can get a still useful 1GB data allowance for a more modest £10. Without the laptop deal, natch.
