Thanks @londonmax for taking the time to post and share your first deal with us :)
This use's the much newer and far more efficient Intel Pentium Silver J5040 @ 2.00GHz. Whilst it's not as fast as the older i5 (about 25% slower) it's massively more efficient needing 700%+ less power! (10W TDP V 77W TDP) It also has hardware x265/4k support so for a very low power media rig this would be great, however I agree that the price is too high. You can pick up 7th Gen i5 7500 SFF PC's on ebay delivered for £120 (also has hardware x265/4k support) and that really would smoke the J5040 (Albeit less efficient obviously)
I picked up an old SFF i5 3470, 4gb ram and a 240gb ssd boot drive also fitted with 2 x 1TB HDDs for £80.. It would blow this machine out of the water, for a 1/3 of the price! My advice would be to do some research and try to pick up an old thin client form eBay or FB marketplace, a lot of them will have better specs and cost a fraction of this 'deal'.
So you didn't notice the wink emoji then.. Oh dear. 🤷🏻♂️🙏🦖💨
Lol, processors don't get slower with age! (lol) You think is wireless because you cannot see a wire from the pc or monitor? You need to learn you some cable management skills! LOLS! (lol) (y)

The p5 plus 2tb is sitting at £193 right now or pay £38 a month for 5 months on amazon
Ah my mistake, thanks for the info!
When digital foundry don't the SN750 they tested the SE version. The SE is a gen 4 but the slowest one out the lot at the time and it worked. The Norman SN750 is a gen3 ssd witch definitely doesn't work. The ps5 board will only accept Gen4 as its not backwards compatibility.
Thanks for posting and well done on your first hotukdeals thread (highfive)
The £950 12400F/3060Ti was a smashing "1st" 12400F spec with the 3060Ti at a decent price but sadly didn't last long better soon came along. this is +250 more for a £130 more CPU and £35 double nvme. for £1206....... u could do a 5800X +3070 for £1250 (5600x at £1125 is the prime deal) for 8cores. and thats without going into this aldi low bios, bad cl rams and inwin psu. and if u really insist in a 12700 / 3060Ti u can do far better in this: https://www.fiercepc.co.uk/intel-12400f-nvidia-rtx-3060ti-custom-gaming-pc where u can build a 1270/3060Ti for the same cost with windows with 1TB nvme but u get a better PSU and a better case and B560 better bios, from there u can drop the windows, u can upgrade the case even further, u can remove the storage and add ur own, or go for the main price deal at 500gb
I have the i5 version and it is great. But seems the i7 with this mobo is not a great option. So I would not bother paying the extra. https://youtu.be/4gv-_ItnWfg
Defo better GPU for the money but HP will run hotter and it has a proprietary mobo - also with 5700g you're limited to PCIe gen3. This has a better CPU and standard components down to a gigabyte mobo and with this being B560 mobo if I remember correctly from Aldi deal so should support Gen4 PCIe. GPU in the Medion seems to be branded Zotac too. It feels like Medion offers a bit more upgrade path in the future. I searched the deals and checked Aldi website aldi.co.uk/medion-i7-rtx3060ti-16gb-512gb-ssd/p/720882596019400?utm_source=awin&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=249371-http%3A%2F%2Fwww.digidip.net%2F&awc=19523_1653503565_a53cda7bbaa5f13bc68e95b59cdd86db That medion is still available. The only difference being storage at 512gb but it costs 100£ less and I feel like it would be a better buy then this.
I'd probably go for the HP AMD / 3070ti on costco but still a fair deal
Many replies say it will work on Windows as well - https://www.amazon.co.uk/2TB-Passport-Portable-Hard-Drive/dp/B07VSPL8FJ/ Not the exact same model but HDD made for Mac. I think you will be able to use it with windows. product page says :' Formatted HFS + Journaled Mac OS X Mountain Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite and El Capitan. May require reformatting for other operating systems. Compatibility may vary depending on user’s hardware configuration and operating system.' So I think you need to reformat it and you're good to go.
I have the same question.. can we reformat it for use with windows
Is it mac only, we cannot reformat it? nice deal
No problem at all. :) Please let us know how quick the delivery was. I just received my Lenovo stuff from the EU by UPS and the delay was a day. So much better than we had a few months ago.

Thanks i ordered 4tb. Its not in the original box but the hard drive looks brand new and sealed. I checked 2 different programs but not bad sectors found. Also zero hour hard drive operation time detected by program.
Out of stock now.
while we are playing 'My Hard Drive is smaller than....' - the first one I had was a 10mg Hard Card in a Amstrad 1640 :D

It’s not a terrible laptop on its own tbh (I had one) - it’s way slimmer and Legion than than the Legion but this all comes at a price. The CPU is far weaker (half the cores) and the 3060 has nearly half the TDP. It is ok if priced substantially lower but it hasn’t been, it’s been fractionally less than competing machines which tempts buyers in unfortunately. It needs to be cheap to be viable - and honestly, the other issue is fast 3050/Ti laptops can keep up, for less money.
Thanks a lot for your comment, this CPU is indeed weaker than legion's 5800x, and has a less beefy 3060 too. I found it is very well balanced as it's still slim and looks good too! Perfect for a casual gamer like me as I mostly play on my desktop.
Quad-core chip labelled i7 to tempt buyers in (but it should be called an i5), the GPU has a low TDP (85W I think) so it performs much worse than it could/should and the chassis is bad for thermals (typical ASUS). The laptop looks nice and slim design though.
The processor only has 4 cores so not great for multi threaded performance although it's quite fast. It depends how you use your computer but you can get Core i5 with more cores than this.

I need two displays often so I would but whatever works for you. Having said that I’ve been surprised how much I can get done on the iMac 24 split screen due to the resolution. To be honest though once you get used to spaces on Mac OS you can be productive even on an Air 11 or MacBook 12.
The Macboook would be a supplementary display in that configuration, you wouldn't look at it often. I really liked that macbook design too, I have a feeling the next Macbook Air is going to use that design with an updated keyboard.
Actually better for your posture too (lol) not 100% but that looks like a top end Dell monitor as well that on their own cost iMac 24 prices! The fact that there is an MX master combo there makes that probable (lol) MacBook 12 inch? One of my favourite macs that everyone else hates! The conflict is real (lol) You’d definitely be better putting that on laptop stand to the left and getting a MX keys mini as your back/neck will thank you long term!
If it's for a PC then definitely do not spend more. PCs just don't need the heatsink, even in ITX builds. And you're not going to notice a difference in performance even compared to a PCIE Gen 3 SSD, let alone between the SN850 and P5 Plus. I say this from experience as the gullible bugger who already bought one.
also £194 for the 2TB version is a good price too.
Got one myself few months ago. Been great so far. Benchmarks:
£109 on CCL, plus £30 GamesPlanet voucher
Yes. I have one of these drives in a Zen 2 system. Getting pretty much the rated speeds. Am noticing a little improvement in load times for the few big boi AAA games I play e.g. Cyberpunk.
