Posted on the IDEAS blog this week:
A low cost PC is now within reach of Centrelink customers through a partnership between Centrelink and WorkVentures. Centrelink customers can now purchase their own professionally refurbished, internet ready, Pentium 4 PC pack which includes Windows XP Pro, Office XP and free phone technical support from just $250 plus delivery. The low cost PC offer is available to all Centrelink concession card holders.
The low cost PC offer should be suggested to current Centrelink customers, particularly those families with school-age children, older Australians and newly arrived migrants. Having access to a PC with internet access makes it easier for current Centrelink customers to do their business online with Centrelink and this should be encouraged.
People interested in purchasing a low cost PC can contact their local Centrelink office or phone WorkVentures on 1800 112 205 or visit WorkVentures
