I see this notebook is on special on Sunday.
Not so clued up about the value for money aspect but looks very well spec'ed up.
What is interesting for me is two things...
1. These flew of the shelves in Aldi in Munich today. I was staying in an hotel opposite Aldi on the Franfurther Ring this morning and they were queing by 7am for something. at 8.05 there must have been ten people walking out with this laptop...http://www.aldi-sued.de/de/html/offers/1213_7900.htm
and it was 699 Euros
Now xe.com gives this as £528
so to point 2 we get it for £499.99http://uk.aldi.com/uk/html/offers/2867_5160.htm
which is the first time I have seen something cheaper in the UK than in Germany. It was not so long ago that we paid the same in pounds as the Germans paid in euros.
So maybe a hot deal......
