I think it's 512 DDR400. It's not a Medion brand but a Gericom. I don't know what their track record is like however it makes one wonder why Aldi have not offered the Medion this time :confused:

Haha,

..well, I'd say the build quality of these laptops isn't quite up to the standard of the Toshiba/ IBM's of this world, but you do get a loads of stuff packed in- the keyboard/ casing are usually the let-downs, and the bios's tend to be less-intelligent at power-saving- this means batteries drain quite swiftly.

That said, for the money it simply can't be beaten.

I think that's it... this is all the info on the ad I received through the post, I am not an expert so anything you don't understand you're welcome to post question but don't expect me to be able to answer but maybe someone else on the forum can.

Before you start rushing to Aldi (if you are that rich ;o) the offer start on the 26th of Feb and knowing how Aldi offers work you better be the first on at the door before they open and pray that your local store are doing the offer - good luck

I so wich I had a spare grand

I find it amazing just how many people will not only have £700 -£1000 in cash to be able to buy the computers that aldi offer, but also the fact that they will spend this much without the extra security that a credit card would offer.
:eek:

Amazing deal though.
Just make sure that you can get a spare battery - now and in two years time!
