doesnt seem very good deal to me - I bought a ASUS 901 XP in August at 280. Only real spec difference is mine has a SD as opposed to these breakable moving Hard drives.

MSI wind is availble cheaper than this in a few places. Best value netbook price wise is Dell Mini at 219 with 8 gb at Dell imho. Will not vote cold as I don't want to rain on your parade too much and medion prices I don't know.

Did you get three years warranty with yours ?

Does'nt the ASUS 901 XP only have an 8.9" screen with a smaller keyborad - don't think you are comparing like with like..........

Poor deal because of the brand.

You can get the highly rated Samsung NC10 for £309 excluding any quidco deals or vouchers(Ebuyer or Amazon or many others) battery life 7hrs. Samsungs after sales service is superb too! Wouldn't touch Medion stuff with a bargepole. dont care if you do get three years warranty.. almost certain to need it within the first six months... same story with other medion stuff... waste of money and is why sold at ALDI!

cold... sorry op

Amazon are selling the NC10 at 299.97 delivered.

Both the NC10 and the Medion/Wind/Advent are excellent.
The NC10 has integral BT, but no 'n' wifi.
Medion has 'n' but the BT is a dongle.
NC10 screen is possibly better but the Medion definitely has the best keyboard.
Medion support is poor, but you do get 3 years cover rather than just one with the NC10.

A very close call between these two, both are very good. I would go for the Medion, but that is probably due to my very positive experience with my Advent 4211 (which is another branding of the MSI wind as is the Medion). The wind clones are extremely easy to upgrade (mine has 320GB, 2GB and a Broacom WiFi card). I also purchased a 9cell battery for £38.38.

Voting this cold because of the brand simply displays ignorance. This is simply a rebanded MSI Wind, which has been shown to be an excellent product.

OP this is a good deal, unfortunately this site has a large number of narrow-minded fanboys amongst its members. People who cannot see the substance behind the label.

Lol nice rant.The medion is made by MSI and is one of the best netbooks and is equal to the Samsung apart for battery life,The samung is a really good netbook but add three years warranty and you will be looking at £400 plus,

This Medion now has the 6cell battery so it should compare well with the NC10.

theres little difference between the 9 in ch and 10 inch screen - they have the same number of dots. Plus 901 is lighter than the bigger ones. I can't understand why people would want the 10 inch really. However, perhaps the deal to compare is with Asus 1000 series then, which is a better brand, arguably easier to upgrade and cheaper (if you shop around) . But you would have to buy online. Alsi in-store is reasonable and the 3 year warranty is attractive. Seeing as a clone brand may well be unreliable I'm no fanboy but if I was buying a netbook now I would expect better value than this deal - they have been available for a year now! I think Dell mini is best value. Also the hard disk is over-rated...get an SSD netbook. Pop in a runcore drive and you get amazing performance and it won't break if you drop it hopefully.

Bought one of these just over a month ago for £250 from Aldi.

Good bit of kit for the price, I think mine has the lower power battery but I only use it when its plugged in.

I was in two minds as to whether to go for the AAO or the Advent when I was looking. I chose the Advent as the 10" screen is little easier on my tired (aging) eyes, but the main factor was that the 10" units have the possibility of larger keyboards. The other factor was the ease of upgrading the MSI and that OSX was already available for it. Only MSI have fully exploited the extra room though. I have just been setting up an AAO (Asda £150 job) and it is very neat, but I don't find the size of the slightly larger Advent a problem. For me the Advent is a better 'fit'.

Yeah at how much for a usable size?!


This is a good deal for a very good ebook.
Asus Eee are hardly the last word in build quality and reliability. We bought a Eee 1000, but I wish we'd got the MSI instead.

This isn't an amazing deal- it's technically identical to the MSI Wind (usually more expensive) and Advent 4211 (PC World only - £279) apart from battery sizes and casing colors etc. etc.

The 4211 is £279 at PC World anyway - MSI Winds tend to be a bit more expensive...

Being an MSI Wind Clone it is a brilliant machine to run OSX on tho - it works (with a bit of kicking) almost flawlessly - ports, sleep, wireless all supported...

I'd probably get the 4211 from PC World tho as it's available anytime...

sburley - I have had my 901 XP for 6 months, it is very well built I would say. I also think it is the only netbook that is simple to upgrade in different ways, and has a massive user community. I am no hardware expert and I installed a new SSD, RAM and wifi card without difficulty.

Runcore drives are 55 pounds for 16Gb one and very fast. I run Leopard on my 901. I think the keyboard point another user makes is valid for the 10 inch models, but I have tiny hands although well endowed in other areas, and fin dthe 901 fine for typing, but a consideration for netbook choice, definitely.

What went wrong with your Asus then? I'd be interested to know?

Also please note all, that although this is a clone of the MSI Wind, there are some key differences reported - it is supposedly not as easy to run Os X on this as the Wind. I think it's similarities are over-estimated from what I have been reading.

I should add the other great point of SSD drives is boot time. Runcore drive gives 45 seconds start to ready-to-use OS on my 901, and the shutdown speed is half that. I don't think the normal hard disks can match this. Just get a usb external drive or cheap SDHC cards if you want storage.

yes, Advent is better match to Wind than Medion I think - check insanelymac and sites ike that befor egetting the Medion. Disturbing reports of os x on it! I think Dell mini 9 is best value way to go for os x though. Or 901 and use the retail dvd install method, very simple.

The resolution is the same, the visibility maybe not depending upon your eyesight. Asus has also the worst quality screens in their 901 netbooks. Very dim and grainy. Similar story with the keyboard. The 901 has a poor keyboard, the MSI arguably the best on a netbook so far.

I would not worry about the cloned netbooks. They probably all come off the same production lines as the originals, just made to the OEMs specifications. I don't think Medion has any production lines of its own.

If I dropped this or any notebook/netbook, breaking the hard drive would be the least of my worries, tbh. You can back up data. Not so easy to back up an lcd screen.

youre totally wrong about the screens..901 is mega screen. You even tried one?

but then why have a massive hard disk if you ahve to back it up then anyway! logic is our downfall
:roll:

I agree to differ, although do agree on bigger pixel size is better for people whose eyes tire . I think MSI is a worse brand than Asus personally. I think these things are bit of a lottery though - I love apple quality and have a g4 tower that is 8 yearss old, (my mental age incidentally) and yet I know people who each time they buy apple it goes wrong.

I think get the Advent as opposed to this. Something not the same as the Medions to the actual wind proper. Google it to find out more. :santa:


I love Aldi however, think they are shaking up uk supermarket scene well Jackson.

Unless they've changed things recently - the differences between MSI Winds, Medion Akoyas, Advent 4211s and several other models throughout the world are limited to

Casing color
BIOS (often can be cross-flashed if you run into problems)
Wifi Card Make/Model (all models seen so far are currently supported in OSX)
HDD Size
Battery Capacity (3cell with MSI/Advent - 6cell with Akoya)

Being a 'rebrand' tho you can never be sure what you're buying until you get it - they could do a mean trick like change the graphics chipset (as Dell are doing with the Mini9) which would cause problems running OSX etc. etc.

p.s. On the SSD vs HDD thing

SSDs are slightly quicker to read and slightly slower to write than most HDDs which means that performance tends to average-out but some things will seem faster in some situations ofc.

SSDs are a good choice for people using these as portable Internet browsers because you don't need the weight/power drain of an HDD when you aren't using it's capacity.

HDDs are a better choice if you plan to run multiple OS's or carry more than a few gigs of media/files with you.

I don't agree with the 'safer to drop' argument at all tho - if you drop a laptop/netbook you're a berk in the first place - choosing a storage system just to make this less painful is slightly bizarre...

you would have to mad to go for the advent from pcworld over this, the advent is the same price but it only has the 3 cell battery which is a major let down on a portable machine, the HDD is also 40gb smaller on the advent and if you wanted to add 36 months warranty on to the advent that would cost you an extra £144, the only reason why you would get the advent is becuase you couldnt be bothered to queue outside aldi when this machines comes in.

Also people are puttiing down the medion support saying it is terrible and is really not, i have used them in the past to get my laptop repaired and had no problems at all. like all customer service centres they will have good and bad reviews but you will only ever nomrally read the bad ones becuase people post them becuase they have something to gain form it while that have nothing at all to gain from posting a good review. If you want i can give you 100s of bad storys about the service at pcworld/techguys but it is a pointless exercise.

Dont forget the three year warranty

Dont forget the three year warranty


How valuable is a 3 year warranty on a PC with your local food shop exactly?

Remember that 'warranties' are often irrelevant - the Sale of Goods Act requires a retailer to repair faults for an unspecified amount of time (not just 12 months) - and if that's a PC shop it might result in a repair - wheras I suspect all you'll get out of Aldi is a refund perhaps?

The 6 cell battery is a nice upgrade but the usual 'lack of supply' at Aldi makes the comparison irrelevant anyway as few people will get one...

p.s. On the Dell Mini 9 and OSX

The Mini 9 is a good OSX machine with a couple of provisos. The standard SSD won't always allow the machine to sleep - so budget for getting a revised one (and a 16Gb one makes installing OSX easier too). Also - Dell are marking new Mini 9s as having the GMA500 chipset which causes problems for OSX I believe so you need to be careful which one you end up with...

:roll: a berk for dropping something? that's a kind of strange thing to think isnt it?

Youre wrong about SSD performance, boot time is drastically reduced, for one. It is one of he major selling points of the MacBook Air. Much easier to get an exteeernal hard disk if you need so many gigs - these arent really meant as desktop replacements.

It is also useful with multiple os'es to have sevral drives. Easier to multi-boot. Think again before laying down the law, please.

this may actually be the better deal than the advent if the hard disk/battery is worse than the other then.

your right the SoGA does state that any item purchased must last a reasonable amount of time but are you actually going to put in all the extra time, effort and cost to take pcworld to a small claims court to get your machine reapired or are you going to make one phone call to medion to get the machine picked up and repaired, i know which one i would rather do.

also the 3 year warranty is not useless at all just becuase it is with a "food shop" as the warranty is actually with medion so the machine will be picked up by a courier taken to medions service centre, repaired and returned. only when it can not be repaired will you get a refund and this is the same service that pcworld have and most retailers, and as long as msi keep making the machince specific components (ie the mobo) then this machine will be able to able to be repaired for a long time to come.

like i said if you wanted to buy this machine with all the upgrades from pcworld that it would cost you over £400 so i would love to know how you can compare the 2.

as for the supply issue, i went into my local aldi about 2 months after they sold this machine (the 3 cell version) last time and they still had one in stock, although saying that i do know what aldi are like for there limited stock levels but if your prepared to queue then this is a much better deal that the advent

Drastically reduced. Not with the class of SSD being fitted to netbooks by manufacturers, remember we are discussing cheap netbooks not the Mac Air. Many benchtests have shown that the stock SSDs are offering little performance benefit vs HDD.

Finally a sign of reason. Well done.

The Medion looks like a good deal. Might be an idea to check the Medion support site for any comments from other users, just to make sure it's reliable.

I have an Acer Aspireone. The 8.9" screen on that is fine, but the wifi is very unreliable, which is totally unacceptable on a NETbook (many posts about this on their user forum).

medion do not make these MSI do and then a medion badge and their oem software is dumped on it. i personally have not heard of any major problems with the WIND machines and at the end of the day it has a 3 year warranty, and i do not know why people bash medions tech support as i have used it in the past and the guy i spoke to agreed with my diagnostics and had booked the machine for an uplift in less than 5 minutes, and i had my machine back in a week. Medions tech support is like any other, you will hear horror stories becuase disgruntaled people like to tell the world about their hardship while the people who are happy just carry on being happy with out telling anyone.

I got one of these today it is a great little netbook being a rebadged MSI WIND U100 it should be. For the £279 you get a cracking little netbook the screen is very clear nice & bright,the battery sits nicely with a small bulge underneath instead poking out of the back which you see on a lot of the other six cell baterries which also helps with ventilation of the unit. Build quality seems nice & sturdy. It comes with restore discs which is good if you have an external CD/DVD drive luckily I have an HDDVD drive for the 360 which can be used.
Their is a small Bluetooth dongle in the box which I nearley missed as it is that small. If you try to find the webcam in your favourite software like Skype it is switched off initially to save power their is a button to switch it on.
So in all this is a very good bargain for what you get for your money.

Anyone know what Aldis return policy is like? I'm tempted but i'd like to know I had the option of returning it, can anyone help?

medionshop.co.uk/
just under £50 from here

medion netbook e1210 is the best netbook out there FULLSTOP . I looked on the cloud (net) for 3 or 4 weeks comparing the avaible net books as my son wanted one for christmas. The best /usable/value for money . . was actually the msi wind BUT as it was out in america ages ago the supply and demand was the problem . Every american wanted one and they could not make em fast enough ! :-D SO i compared the specs of the two and as someone already pointed out the medion had the built in wi -fi but the blue toot a micro dongle . ANY NETBOOK with out a full keyboard is useless as it is just unusable . the netbooks with 8" or 9" screens are un-seeable and the netbooks with 12" or about are hust too big ! (just get a proper full size laptop !!!!!!!!) The medion is sweet as for surfing the cloud any where . MEDION QUALITY IS BRILLIANT ANY ONE WHO SAYS ANY DIFFERENT HAS NEVER USED ONE ! It has won countless awards and is constantly winning WHAT COMPUTER OF THE YEAR just look it up . Yes there are a couple of issues

1 . Every review in any tabloid or online moans a battery life ! just buy a better one for £40 with a life of 10 hours . (not rocket science)
2 .There is no drive that,s cause it,s a netbook not a laptop half the computer would be the drive !!!! your noyt playing crysis on it ! nearly a 100% of people (all percetenages ever are made up) are going to use it for surfing the cloud .

Any one saying YES BUT AND THIS . . . just dont know jack sh*t . .

dealextreme have a 6 cell batt for about 35 quid delivered for the medion

Bought my Medion from Sainsbury's around 3 weeks ago when they were selling them for £179 after seeing the deal posted on here. It has slightly lower specs than the one advertised at Aldi, mine has 120gb hardrive as opposed to the 160gb in this one and it only has a 4 cell battery which would be easily upgradable. I have been very pleased with my purchase so far, and as already mentioned, the keyboard is is very good to type with, and the the 10" screen is clear and sharp. At the time of purchase I also had the opportunity to go for the Dell mini which was at a similar price to what I paid for this one because of the 48hr Dell mini promotion at that time. If I was to be given the same purchasing opportunity again, and after using the Medion for a few weeks now, I would still opt for the Medion. An excellent bit of kit.

Nice lil piece... bought mine from Sainsbury's too for £179....

I dont think the extras on this spec are worth the extra money, still good though.

Runcore drives? What a con.

Check this runcore.com/pro…157

Look at the graphs that compare the drives, notice anything interesting?

It has slightly lower specs than the one advertised at Aldi, mine has 120gb hardrive as opposed to the 160gb in this one and it only has a 4 cell battery which would be easily upgradable. I have been very pleased with my purchase so far, and as already mentioned, the keyboard is is very good to type with, and the the 10" screen is clear and sharp. At the time of purchase I also had the opportunity to go for the Dell mini which was at a similar price to what I paid for this one because of the 48hr Dell mini promotion at that time. If I was to be given the same purchasing opportunity again, and after using the Medion for a few weeks now, I would still opt for the Medion. An excellent bit of kit.




wierd as i also brought 3 from sainsburys but they only had 80gb hard drive , have i been done ?

Hubby bought me the 3-cell version of this for Crimbo - it is fantastic.
I'm typing this on a Medion PC I bought nearly 5 years ago - a fantastic machine, never a moments problem although I keep it well maintained.
We have 2 Medion PDA/Sat-Navs still going strong. I've only just upgraded my Traveler digital camera from Aldi 4 years ago (and still prefer it to my new one).
Portable DVD player still going strong. The other full-sized DVD player must be 6 years old - that's still ok (although feeling a bit inadequate due to it's Sony Blu-Ray neighbour).
The ski wear is brilliant.
We have had tons of stuff from Aldi and found them to be excellent quality. As for the choc-chip brioche....

Yeah, my one from Sainsburys was 80 gig. I don't think the Akoya E1210 comes with a 120 GB hard drive.
