Not for £150 though. Plus they have had bad feedback about their warranty policy
Good deal
#12
Its an MSI Wind really, nowt wrong with them!! Get a bigger battery if you need one for about £40.
#13
I got the aldi deal this time last year with the bigger battery and cannot fault the thing, its what I too am using right now!!!.
The power charger stopped working last month though but after phoning customer support I had a new one within a week with no questions asked!!!!
Great deal but as mentioned, if you wait for an aldi one you'll get the 3 year warranty which personally I think is well worth it!!
#14
also saw this last night at my local store *Bradford On Avon" I thought it was a great deal but already have the Asda Acer One posted last year

I bought a Medion E1210 last year on March 6 (when it was advertised for £175). On March 2 it died while I was on a business trip to China. On March 8 (my first day back) I marched into Sainsbury's, only to be told to get lost because it was two days past the warranty. They didn't want to help and told me to take it up with Medion. Not impressed. Medion has supposedly agreed to "inspect" the system but I've had to keep bugging them to collect the netbook.

I agree with the poster who said these things need a longer warranty. If they truly design them to last only 12 months, that's atrocious build quality.
#18
I thought the 3 year warranty was with the manufacturer, would it not be all Medion stuff that was under the manufacturers warranty?

Know your rights, the Sale of Goods Act (SoGA) basically states goods must be fit for purpose AND last a reasonable length of time, this is generally more than the warranty period covers. The retailer is responsible for faults outside the warranty period, not the manufacturer. I'd go back to Sainsburys after some reading on SoGA.

Actually, the retailer is responsible full-stop. The manufacturer's warranty is a bonus.

You might try for the EU policy of 2 years cover on electrical goods but it's a debatable point; in theory you're covered for 24 months throughout Europe. The British government is undecided on this though and is still drafting proper legislation. People have had success though, so worth a go.

As for 'fit for purpose' and 'reasonable length of time' in England you're covered up to 6 years but it's up to you to prove it's an inheritant fault thus you'd need to pay for an independent inspection which will be costly and potentially take the retailer/manufacturer to court. Not easy by a long shot and it rarely happens.

I suggest reading up on your rights; and David you might like to do that again so you get it right too!

anyone who gets this.. there is a dedicated medion support site here:

Now that's a much more sensible interpretation of the situation than some have posted on this site recently, and have argued until they are blue in the face!

One or two people are under the misapprehension that they are going to be able to waltz in to a store and get a refund after 6 years! :whistling:

Purchased an item from Digitalera and it went wrong after 13 months, was told i have no rights also kept my item and will not return it, good luck if you have to use court action, getting the money even if you win is still a problem
#28

hot hot hot

High Wycombe has at least one of these in stock. Saw it there this evening. Bought one last year so did not need it.

sainsburys cover warranty for 12 months only.

Anything after that is with manufacturer.ave

uk government has not taken on the eu 2 year thing as they think the law in place we have in place is justifiable, sainsburys are not interested in any acts you throw at them. its 12 months only for electrical with store any additional warranty is with manufacturer,

pick up the return faulty goods leaflet its red -outlines what your covered for.

no receipt no refund
no receipt no replacement - unless sainsburys own branded products
covered 12 months only with store
#31
my advice would be if you get any signs of problems in first 12 months take it back and request a refund stating the problems.
#32
Heat added - Just got one from Sainsburys in Emersons Green, Bristol. Great little machine for a cracking price :)

Hi, we bought one for our daughter last March too....it'sbeen brilliant up until a few weeks ago. 2 days after twelve month purchase date (even though we didnt start using it for a couple of weeks from purchase). Sainsburys didnt want to know so contacted Medion who sent a courier to collect promptly. THey have said they will repair or replace.
