Not bad but I would get the linx 12x64 for the detachable keyboard and save a little bit as well
Wow, 6 screens - impressive

Thanks for another option. I note that people state for the Linx, the keyboard is not that good, and some keys are missing. The battery life is around 3 hours less also. But, still worth considering.
Not mentioned in the description above: 3 year warranty. My impression is that these machines struggle to load and run Windows with such basic hardware

Ideally, we could do with someone who has one on here, giving a brief review. I have recently installed Windows 10 on a much inferior 4 year-old ChromeBook, and it runs fine, even with just 2GB RAM.
If you want more details (including a video), it looks like it's this laptop (get Google to translate it for you).

It's a pity that Aldi are not offering UK customers the model that they are offering to German customers on the same day (30 August), which has a bigger screen (13.3 inches) and a faster, more modern processor (Celeron N4100) for €299 (less than £270). There's a review of it here.
So i'm stuck between this thing and the Linx 12X64, as mentioned above.
The main differences are (Medion / Linx);
The the screen size: 11.6" / 12.5".
Battery: 9 Hrs / 6 Hrs.
Detachable Keyboard: No / Yes.
Warranty: 3 Yrs / 1 Yr.
Price: £249.99 / £209.99
Same Ram size, HD size and Processor.
Anyone got any input?
Thanks

It really comes down to what you want it for, for 90% of the time. If I were in the market, whilst a detachable keyboard might seem nice, I would never detach it. And then, according to the reviews, the keyboard on the Linx isn't that great, and that would do my head in.

That CPU is not great though, and whilst Windows 10 will run, it may start struggling if you do anything intensive on it, especially with 2GB RAM. So, again it comes down to what you want to use it for. If you just want email and browsing, you may as well get a ChromeBook. They have a very lightweight operating system, and great battery life.

If I was thinking of spending this much on a Windows 10 notebook, I would probably spend a bit more and get one with better hardware.

As an alternative, you could try getting a refurbished laptop. I have done this several times and never had a problem. At the moment you can get the Dell Latitude E7240 for £369. However, there is a promotion on this laptop, bringing it down to £221.40. This has vastly superior hardware.

I ended up getting a refurbed Dell laptop!
I bought the aldi one, and it's was painfully slow, especially when you opened more than on internet tab up.
The Dell is just like a mini laptop, no issues. Can do multiple things on it, and it doesn't change in speed/response.
Thanks!
