It looks like they do not have them in stock yet

The web site might not have been updated yet though. Personally I could not pay this kind of money for a Medion but prefer to spend a bit more for a decent brand.

Voted hot because it will appeal to others who actually like Medion products (I only own one - GoPal Sat Nav):oops:

It would need to be the best bargain ever for me to ever consider buying Medion again.

Still have the grey hairs I acquired trying to deal with their appalling Customer Service.

to be honest i think some of the dell desktops will be better priced for a similar spec esp. when you factor in no monitor...

Is it just me, or are these recent Aldi PC deals nowhere near as good as they were previously? Not saying that isn't a great spec, but £550 is no longer a 'wow' price for a PC without monitor.

That seems to be the general consensus - in the early days, the medions were worth queuing up for but not any more - usually better deals available cheaper. Similarly, the quality of recent medion machines seems to be nowhere near what it was.

Yes I agree

Agreed. I'm writing this on a Medion 8383, which had unbelievable specs for the price at the time. This deal is good, but doesn't have the "wow" factor that the early deals used to have.

tbf i think you have to factor in processor costs
a lot of the wow deals you talk about will be using athlon 64 and pentium d's
whereas this uses a proper core 2 duo
which craps all over the other processors but is more expensive
also the talk of dell deals
if you want to "game2 on your computer
it isnt that easy to get a good deal from dell
as usually there deals have total pants graphics cards in them
so ya would have to buy another and upgrade
just my tuppence
please dont shoot me
just trying to contribute with the debate

agree that some dell graphics are low but then so are the prices! :whistling: and of course you can also chuck a beefier card in. i like dell as i have always had good reliability form them and find their build quality and internal assembly to be generally good, very much preference as you say...

tbh you will be hard pushed to get this Media type spec with thsi warranty from dell or from anywhere for that matter. it doesn't seem to have the "wow" factor as the OP hasn't given the full spec probably because it isn't fully listed. Here is the full spec, including the chassis,

Aldi deals are nowhere near as good as they once were, wait for the Lidl PC to come out, when , I dont know.

For the spec of PC and the bundled software you will struggle to build it cheaper yourself, so it's not a bad price. But if you need to get it fixed within the 3 year warranty don't expect them to be out straight away, I had to wait 4 weeks from the original phone call to the 1st visit and even then he didn't have the parts he need so had to wait another week before getting it fixed, and I fix Dell PC's for a living and they still insisted on sending out their own engineer to fix it. :x

Same experience as you.
I almost had the engineer just sending out the part to me to swap over, but they didnt have any in stock and they had already sent the last one to the engineers that were to come out.
As long as you get a half decent guy on their 2nd line, ie their tech support, then it's possible to get it delivered and give the delivery guy the faulty part back.

This spec sucks for gaming too, so not really much of a difference to the Dells then.

The connectivity on these machines is amazing. I bought the last one and it now runs all media in my house - music, TV, pictures, DVDs, home videos. It's great!

Does anyone know what processor it is:

Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6400 Processor (2.13GHz, 1066MHz, 2MB)

OR

Intel® Viiv™ Core™ 2 Duo E6400 Processor (2.13GHz, 1066MHz, 2MB)

The Viiv is used for TV so hope it does or would not be worth buying
