That's not that long tbh, not voted either way as it's a lot to spend on something that'll probably be difficult to repair on your own...
#4
haven't tried medion myself, but i haven't seen bad reviews either....

neutral like Nad
#5
ALDI have sold only Medion PC's for at least 15 years
and they have always had a THREE year warranty. I have
had three from them over that time and never a problem.
If you want a touch screen PC then this looks a great deal.
Voted HOT and thanks for the post.
#6
I had a medion laptop from toysrus and had no problem with it at all, I would have no problem getting another medion
#7
I think the reason for some people's dislike of Medion computers is not necessarily the quality of the products, rather it is that they have a very poor reputation for after sales service.

A three year warranty is fine and dandy until you discover that to replace a laptop's faulty hard drive is going to take three to four weeks!

Is this how long it took for your repair or just an assumption?
#9
If you're after this because it's got a multitouch screen then, my advice is, don't bother.
Touch screens on iPods - great.
On a PC they're a pure gimmick.
You'll be back to your keyboard and mouse within minutes.

6 hundred for a PC... hardly a bargain, however good it might be

Absolute rubbish... If you're gonna build your own i7 build, it can set you back £1500+..

Fact. It happened to my brother. In the end he just got them to return it and bought a replacement drive at his own expense.
#13
hmmm. Do i get an iPad, or a medion all-in-one.

let me think about that. I have a feeling that one of them will be a defining moment in consumer electronics, but which one?

What?

"Large 4 GB DDR2 SDRAM

Is it DDR2 or DDR3?

Seems the site says DDR3, OP should ammend thread.

Exactly. My i7 build cost £2400 all in.

The spec of the PC looks decent, but as mentioned before I'm not sure the quality will be all that. It says DDR3 on the ALDI site.

Eithe way, looks like a decent deal.
#17
The keyboard looks quite nice :thinking:

The iPad doesn't do half the stuff this can do. Plus the screen is much bigger. It's like comparing chalk and cheese. The iPad is effectively a large iPhone. I certainly didn't bin my laptop as soon as I bought my iPhone...

But this isn't an i7 machine (it's simply a dual core processor isn't it?), so what point are you trying to make? :?
#21
Nice: Hot.

Medion is not that bad tbh.
#22
Shame there's no Blu Ray drive in there
#24
Er, Hang on a mo OP

The graphics card seems to have had its description shortened from the web site it should read:

NVIDIA® GeForce® 9100MG DirectX®10 graphics with shared 256 MB memory

So, does that mean its not a dedicated GC? if so, then its cold from me.

Decent Sized Image - No squinting...

#26
Yes the gfx card is terrible
#27
OK, then so its cold for 2 reasons :

1. The GC is pants, well it is in comparison to a separate GC with the same capacity
2. Its a touchscreen, I configure industrial touch screens, they are ALWAYS needing to be cleaned, greasy fingers, scratched displays, They are never as clean as you want them to be, and you have to be careful of the products you use and the type of cloth as you can do some serious damage if your not careful.

IMHO....

#28
cant comment on the touch screen but happy to vouch for Medion, ive had a Medion laptop for over 4 years with zero problems, and its used daily.

Previous to that i bought a Medion desktop pc, which i used happily for 3 years before selling on.

I agree this models not very powerful, but if your not a gamer then it'll be fine.

that makes no sense at all, why in gods name would you buy a touchscreen pc if you weren't going to use the touchscreen? its like saying an open top car is cold because it is open top and it takes a while to put teh top down, you aint gonna buy an open top if u dont want one, you aint gonna buy a touch screen if u dont want one!
#30
Another +1 for Medion here.

I have had 3 medion desktop PCs all bought from Aldi over the last 10 years and each one has been fantastic, easy to upgrade (as the cases etc are standard size!)

Im not sure about these all in one machines, surely you could get a similar set up but seperate monitor etc for a similar cost and then you can upgrade it - I cant imagine there is a lot of room in this box if you want to add things - thats just a guess as I have never seen the guts of one.

If you want a machine like this (instead of the dell one) then its really cheap so you cant argue whether its a good deal or not - it certainly is hot!
#31
Don't get it guys, I've had a medion pc for the last 5 years, as soon as it went out of waranty the hard drive died on me and now so is the rest of it, some repairers in the past commented that only a monkey could have built it. Don't get it they are a bad brand and support is laughable for it.

I use a touch screen at work, they're about 6 years old, they dont need cleaning anymore than any other screen, the fingerprints dont show up and I haven't seen a single scratch on any them (there's about 17 screens)
#33
Unless I am missing something, it doesn't mention the size of the screen. Kind of essential when buying a touch screen monitor. Also, what use would most people have for this kind of thing? I just bought an i7 setup (without touchscreen of course) for £470, this thing seems like a novelty.

While the build quality may not be all that, 5 year lifetime for a hard drive is not bad as far as I'm concerned - even for a cheap PC it's not bad.
#35
Processor is relatively weak and the graphics card is weak. Shame.
#36
I paid less than £250 more for a refurbished iMac 24" from the Apple store, and it is certainly worth it - the build qaulity is light years ahead of Medion and it has never let me down in nearly 2 years. In my opinion, you don't save money on computers, you just get something that doesn't work as well.

My father-in-law splashed out on the HP touchsmart PC a couple of months before I got my iMac, and then bought an iMac when he saw mine. He hasn't touched the HP since! Touchscreens on a PC are just novelty and as previously mentioned, in a couple of weeks you'll be back to your mouse and keyboard, wondering why you paid the extra for the touchscreen!!
#37
We've had a Medion desktop pc for 9 years, it's on 18 hours a day and has been used continually by 2 adults and 3 teenage lads.

We had one problem in the first year when the nVidea graphics card failed (hardly Medion's fault) and they sent out an engineer within 48 hours, who replaced the card on site with no arguments. After that it's run faultlessly despite our best efforts to trash it.

I also have a Medion Akoya laptop that is in use for several hours every day without any kind of problem.

I'm not into integrated units though. If one item fails you lose the lot if it has to be removed for repair.

Plus, why would I want my washing machine and freezer welding to my car?

Yes. I also didn't see the ****ing massive '21 1/2" Screen' banner plastered across the top left hand corner of the item on the deal page.

Should've gone to Specsavers.
#39
Windows 7 can't be compared to the iPhone OS for multitouch functionality. It's completely outclassed. This PC will never perform like an iPad or iPhone. Also, does this PC feature a capacitive touch screen, or just a resistive one? It makes a huge difference to the useability.

There's so many things that can make this a bad idea.
#40
I have a Touch Screen/Media Centre latop/Tablet, very rarely Touch the screen and can't see using a touch screen on a desktop any more.

Mind you remote control and built in tuner does make it ideal for Bedroom use, if you don't mind starting a computer up to watch Telly
