Microsoft and Lenovo have teamed up to offer pay as you go PC use.

We’re not too sure if this is a new idea or just good-ol’-fashioned leasing but anyway Microsoft and Lenovo have teamed up to offer pay as you go PC use.

Users pay for half the price of the PC then buy top-up cards that give users access to the computer services. Digital Lifestyles says:

The FlexGo machines use a fully-fledged version of Windows XP that comes with a timer counting down the hours in the upper right-hand corner of the PC screen. As the timer runs down, the PC delivers a series of alerts before limiting access to programs and features, and ultimately ceasing to work altogether until more time is purchased (by prepaid card or online).
