Free Pc Tips--Part 2 of 4
Always check for hidden cost in a "free" PC offer in addition to researching the full cost of any required ISP contract (we covered this in the last tip). The types of hidden costs you could find include exorbitant shipping costs for sending you the hardware, the fee for including a monitor, and a startup fee for initiating the ISP service. Look around for a deal that doesn't include any of these costs. You should really only pay some nominal fee for hardware (it's supposedly free, anyway), plus your monthly ISP bill.
