I know a few people here hate Medion, but I have a 12 year old desk PC made by Medion I got from Toys R Us under my desk, & it still works.
As yet this is not on the Aldi website, I think they normally sell an external UBS3 hard drive at the same time.
I can't list details like price or size of the external hard drive till it appears on the website but this PC as a moulded fitting on the top of the case to hold the external hard drive.
For the spec I think this is a good deal. I'm sure someone will say you could self-build a better PC, but I don't have the time or experience to do that.
its now on the website. More details about the PC at
The external hard drive that fits into the top of the PC case is a 500 GB 2.5'' USB3 for £54.99
