Call in on Thursday. They will have next weeks leaflets which will include this.

Thanks for the information. This too might also help others have a look and decide if they want to buy this PC. I have one of their 19" monitors and it works a treat!

The offer was highlighted by a forum member about a fortnight ago, but at that time Aldi had not posted details on its website.

It's still the case but if you're interested you can register on the website to receive details by e-mail:

Review in Computer Active Issue 151, 27th Nov.

Quite an impressive spec as I'm sure you'll agree, but as I'm starting from scratch and I'll need to buy a monitor and speakers as well, it it such a good deal?

I can get roughly the same spec elsewhere e.g. Mesh, Multivision etc from 'reputable' PC manufacturers.
