I got the last Aldi offering, the Titanium 8080. I am well pleased with it. As far as I can see, the new one is pretty similar but has a 8x DVD writer and a larger hard drive.It should meet all of your requirements.

A work colleague showed me the leaflet for this PC today. He wanted to know whether it would be a good purchase. "Better than my heap of scrap!", I told him.

What exactly is a 9800 XXL? Is it based on a standard 9800 or a 9800 Pro?

Also, the memory. "512 MB at 400 MHz, with one bank free." Does this mean it has 2 X 256 MB sticks fitted, and another two slots are available in the free bank?

If there are any problems you contact Medion via a national rate phone line; based in Swindon. Good service is the usual from them.
