Looks like another good deal from Aldi on a Medion Titanium MD8386 @ £749.99. See the specs here click here Other specials include printers, scanners etc. I have 2 Medions from here and they've been very good.

Did they cure the TV card and silencer problems they had with their last machine?

The TV card problems were the source of much angry comment and various methods of attempting to solve them in a number of forums at the time.

Aldi Medion machines offer good value.
But support from Medion if you have a problem is very poor in my experience. I'm not alone look at

Unless you can deal with faults yourself I don't recommend buying these offers.

Many people are still waiting for replacement fans - one of the biggest problems with their last release - and that is now 4 months after contacting Medion.

The digital TV software from Cyberlink has never functioned properly. It now appears that support and fixes for this software have ended without the software being made functional on many computers.

Bought one last April, two graphic cards went wrong in the first two months.
Waited about three weeks for replacements. But, since then its gone a treat.
I would get another.

For complete package see click here

Note this one has now 1024 MB of memory !

Service problems, may be due to the support people who Medion use not being specifically trained in their PC's (had three visits last year ending with new AGP card, CPU and motherboard) would not like their mobile phone bills and I would suggest if you ever had to have a CPU replaced have some silicone jointing compound handy (engineers don't carry it).

AGP problem traced to missing power cable to card !

Would I buy this one .... yes get in the Q

Medion doesn't actually manufacture its products, but rebadges those of specialist manufacturers under its own name.

I recently had to call them with regards to my Medion Cybercom Laptop and found the support very good. Did not have to wait long and problem sorted in discussion with knowledgeable technicians. Perhaps I was just lucky but I can't fault them. They were courteous and friendly.
