HP Notebook + Internet for R388 per month (over 36 months) - is this a great deal or what?

SHOOT: I got a call from Vodacom offering me a snazzy notebook for less than R400 a month. Not bad. It adds up to R13 968. There is a catch. Sort've. The bundle comes with an internet package of 250kb. That's barely enough to check your email. It's about the equivalent of downloading 5 youtube videos. So if you're a heavy internet user, this deal is going to hurt. If not, enjoy a snazzy new notebook. Oh, one more thing. If you bought this notebook separately it would cost you R4,608, so the deal is really giving you R9500 worth of internet which amounts to...well...checking your work email. Some deal.
