Aldi's have on offer as mentioned above since Sunday. All specs sound great - with one exception.It has 1MB L2 Cache. Now I have been told that I should be looking at a 2MB Cache and not less. Can anyone offer some advice in plain English please? Thanks.

Are you getting mixed up with Cache a Ram?

Woodchip - maybe I am, I really dont know - just confused by all the techno details

Cache memory is on motherboard or CPU, Ram you can upgrade if the comp will take it

Your not confused Medion akoya £499. with 3GB DDR2 memory ,Itel dual core T330 which is described as 1.6 Ghz FSB533 1MB L2 cache.
I will leave it to others to advise further.
Do they still have it ?cant see it on their website

It's not on their current website - it came out last Sunday - but there were still some available in my local store. I think I am getting confused as you say anniesboy. The ? is - do I or don't I buy? and i know the answer to that I suppose is only I can make that decision! Thanks for your help any ways.
