Aldi are advertising a notebook for sale... Has anybody any advice as to whether this Aldi notebook (I think it is a Medion something or other) is suitable for my use. I normally use a PC at home but think I could well use something like this for my mobile home. Can you use these things for communication purposes when you are abroad? I've never used any other computer but the one I have at home. But I know other people seem to use them wherever they are. No doubt some of you will come up with a better deal more suitable for my use.
'Can you use these things for communication purposes when you are abroad'. You can - you have to have access to a wireless hotspot; quite routinely found in cafes in many countries (and usually free if you buy a coffee). Can be expensive in some hotels, but free in others (my hotel in Oz wanted to charge £15 a day, so I used a local cafe). Medion seem to have a good reputation (rebadged from some other make, if I remember).
Thanks for the replies guys and girls, much appreciated. I've just looked at one in my local Aldi and asked how many they had left and the man said "five". So maybe they aren't selling as well as normal.
Looks like the Notebooks are not a big seller still got some in my Aldi store. If you are still in the market they have a nice Tower set for next Thursday. Akoya E4355D for £399.99 they also have a Medion 20" TFT Monitor for £89.99 on the same day. So a fairly cheap set up.
