Anyone buy the GERICOM Smart Power from ALDI?

What do you think?

Just something odd though, I have never seen the charging light light up red like it says, it lights up amber and green only. Flashes amber when charging.

Is this the same on yours?

Also, the HDD rattles mad? LOL

And that fan is loud and goes on and off?

When charging the battery emmits a strange sound, not loud though?

Ughhh? Is this laptop normal?

Sorry, I am obsessed with sounds, its not quiet like my last laptop. :-(

I have, mine doesn't glow red either. No other problems, though when I put a dvd in (2 different ones) to test it, the speakers aren't up to much. Got them on full volume. Thinking of buying some Creative SBS 250's or 270's.

Is the HDD a little rattly?

I know the speakers are rubbish,. but so are all laptop speakers.

And does a fan go on and off on yours?

Just wait, to say the HDD does not make a single sound at all?

You cannot hear anything from the HDD?

Thats ODD.
