$2.60/Day MacBook With High Speed Access

Telecom company Orange is teaming up with Apple for a unique offer. For 2 euros a day, or about $2.60 in overworked American dollars, French consumers can get a MacBook with 1 Mbps DSL.

Is this a good idea? I'm not sure. If we were talking about a MacBook Pro and/or a wireless standard, my ears would be perked. But DSL is available in many markets for $20/month. And I'm guessing you could finance a suped-up MB an match this offer, eventually walking away with something you own. What do you think?
