Has anyone got the Review in Computer Active Issue 151, 27th Nov for the latest Aldi offer?

I need it before buying (or not) this latest offering.

Thanks in advance.

Have a look to see if it is posted on their website.

The review is in ComputerActive coming out this Thursday. An excellent review. You'll have to wait till Thurs. to read it. I got mine early because I subscribe to it. It is highly highly recommended according to the article. I have never seen such an unreserved recommendation.

Essentially, the article says every component included is top notch ( I agree) and performace tests came out extremely well. For components go to the Aldi website as suggested.

The Aldi website doesn't say anything, the prob is that good machines on paper can be quite bad in reality and before parting with £850 plus monitor I need to be sure. Took me long enough to convice my wife, if I buy a dud she will kill me!

As I said the review subjected it to preformance tests with very good results. All components are the latest.

Yes, the card is a ATI 9800Xl, the latest, multi- format DVD/CD-Rewriter,P4 3.0GHz Cpu, 160g h/d, 512 DDR 400, Stereo TV & FM card, 7x USB2, 2 Firewire, 802.11g Wi-Fi, (the fastest) and the latest sofeware bundle too long for me to list. This comp should be able to do anything that you want with some fairly future proved.
