The must have technology gadget this Christmas will be free laptops as families look to cuts costs as a result of the economic downturn, according to Top 10 Broadband.

"With broadband and free laptop deals starting at £25 a month, laptops have never been so affordable or attractive to a British public looking to curb their spending in the run up to credit crunch Christmas," commented Jessica McArdle, a spokesperson for the website.

"On Top 10 Broadband, broadband and free laptop sales accounted for just four per cent of total mobile broadband sales in July – they now account for over 27 per cent, suggesting that laptop-bundles will overtake standalone mobile broadband sales by the end of the year," she added.

"Since launching laptop-broadband deals on, we have seen significant sales growth month-on-month and predict that laptop-broadband deals will be top-sellers this Christmas," said a Phones4U spokesperson.
