Dells offers atm walk all over this

Yes I mentioned this yesterday but looking at it again Aldi do not go into too much detail regarding the spec, and agree with the dell offers being better, if you dont count the Aldi's 3 years guarantee.
But I always think if your going to spend £460+ on a laptop, even if you need to borrow £100 off mum whats a bit extra to get exactly what you want, with Aldi its off the shelf take it or leave it.

Are you sure?

If you spec a Dell 6400 up to the Aldi spec, ie up the processor, ram, o/s and hard drive oh and of course add three year warranty you get a price of £772.37

So how can Dell walk all over this laptop

spec for spec Dell = £772.37 Aldi = £459.99

Over £300 difference - could buy a second cheapo laptop for that :)

Both even have exactly the same integrated graphics.

So I would say not a bad deal for a reasonably spec laptop

Dell laptops are relaly reliable and it is a known fact (for me) that 1 month before the warranty is about to end just phone them and haglle down the extended warranty price to get it cheap.
#5
Having had to use the Medion 3yr Warranty before

I would never buy anything from this bunch of idiots again.

Theres that Dell on here that was £380 for the same hardware spec, Vista Business instead of Premium, and 1yr Warranty instead of 3yr.
Thats plenty.

You get a 3yr Warranty with Medion, because it takes them that long to sort the problem out when you get one.

Just saw one of MkeT's deals, basically same spec as this from Dell £515 using a different ecode, so this is still cheaper but not by much.

Much of a muchness to me
Dell is better known, but do not know much about their warranty service

Mdion is less well known here, but well respected in Germany, I know many small businesses in Germany who swear by Medion stuff

Dell has to be ordered and delivered, Medion pick it up on Thursday
#7
Yea the Germans get good service and even get better models sometimes.

Over here they take the ****, can leave you waiting for months on repairs, and waiting on parts getting sent from Germany etc.
After their Feb/March models there was a crazy amount of people needing repairs (something like 250 people needing motherboards replaced in brand new PCs)

Never again.
#8
We have a fleet of roughly 150 dell laptops and 150 dell desktops at work and I have to say they are NOT as reliable as everyone makes them out to be. The number of blown capacitors on motherboards Ive had to deal with is unprecedented!

To be fair the customer service is good, once you've spent half an hour jumping through hoops on the phone to dell.

With regards to just laptops, the major issues Ive found are:
Hard drives blowing,
Cheap plastic casing is easily damaged,
Poor performance and spec compared to similar other brand laptops,
Not to mention the well documented laptop battery issue!

Overall I would say if you know nothing about PC's / laptops - Yes they are a good buy.

If you have technical knowledge - I wouldnt buy one ever!

Tell me about it. I was one of the engineers who had to face irate customers.

lol thats what I thought. I was sure about ordering the same spec dell6400 for £398 this morning, then I found out about this. .. Later in the day I ordered the Dell. Ive been using Dells for years & not had a bad experience. I did consider the Aldi one, just because of the 3yr warranty. In the end I went with what I felt was the better machine. I posted this cos as elitom says, you can pick it up Thursday; if Dell wern't doing their free delivery this week, it would be more than this for the same package.

Oooooh i dont envy you lol.

I gave up getting engineers out, they only did Glasgow + surrounding areas, 1 day of the week.
Was bloody murder.
Call up and get offered Tuesday next week,
If you cant make it, you get offered Wednesday the week after,
etc etc.
Murder as you have to juggle days off to sit in, and hoping the helpdesk has told them the correct parts to bring out.
Oh yea and the engineer was on holiday once, so there was no cover for that fortnight resulting in at least a 3 week wait. On top of the week it took them to phone me back to tell me.

Not the engineers faults as they were generally nice, just the company they work for is really really bad lol.

Then i found out they can just send out the part after i had been complaining to the Medion Tech Support that i'd waited a month for a Graphics card that takes 2 minutes to open and slot in.
Was the last time i called.....ever, which was the 3rd Graphics Card. Had a couple motherboards, maybe RAM and cant remember what else lol.

Hint if you have to, always say you are calling back tech support when you call their helpline.
Gets you past their 1st line support, or they will have you reinstalling Windows for a burnt out and fallen off heatsink fan (yes they tried that with me, and i did lose the rag a bit lol)
#12
Well I have had Dell and Medion Computers, the Medion has never gone wrong, the Dell finished up in the skip.

So I vote this HOT.:thumbsup:
#13
Cannot believe this is voted so cold. Processor is faster than Dells at this price, Dells does not have the Cam included nor the carry case and the mouse, not sure if the Dell has the multi card reader either. This also comes with a full firewall etc and Vista PREMIUM.
#14
It doesn't really matter if people on here vote it cold, it will still sell out in a day or so.:)
#15
With Medion its your luck of the draw really.

If it works it might be fine.

If it doesnt work, then its a long drawn out repair usually.
As i said, one of their models earlier this year, most the Motherboards were faulty, and there were reports of 250+ replacements needed. Not great when they only get a dozen at most in each of their shops.

Its one of those wait and see if anyone else has problems, before you get your own types of situations.
But by then, theres none left.
Knackered either way really.

Please don't make sweeping statements about Dell reliability; Dell laptops are as reliable as the next laptop and I've inspected their production methods and facility in Limerick several times.

If a laptop dies, it will typically die in the first 60 days of operation OR after a few years operation due to parts failure over time, so warranty beyond 1 year is important.

I use Lenovo and again, having inspected their production facility and methods in Taipei, I can be confident that I am buying a top quality laptop with 3 years warranty as standard, which is a little more expensive when compared to Dell.

If the Aldi laptop meets your requirements then buy it, nothing more to say.

BTW, I had to visit laptop production plants as part of delivering the mobile broadband product for Vodafone.

Walked by Aldi today so popped in to see the laptop.Was told all sold out within an hour.
