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 http://aldi.medion.com/md8351/uk/?refPage=aldi
The external hard drive that fits into the top of the PC case is a 500 GB 2.5'' USB3 for £54.99
