Any one had any experience with the MEDION® AKOYA laptops from aldi,

Are they ok or just cheap and nasty,

Thinking of buying this one on Thursday if I get good comments.

mfletch,looks a decent spec with a few extras over most lappies.

Nice machine with three year support,cannot be bad.

I think Woodchip has experience with Medion computers and i do believe they are pretty good.

Anyway,if you decide to go ahead with the purchase,let us know how you get along.

Best of luck with the new toy (if you get it of course) :-))

You once recommended me over there for something,but for the life of me...i cannot remember :-(

Not sure if i posted though ?

I think it was about a host file for Vista??

That's it,still not got to the bottom of it,though not played with it recently.

All the xp machines are fine but the Vista does not want to play ball....will try again again soon now sp1 is installed.

Talking of Host file problems,this one may interest you click here
i think its easily sorted but the author needs a bit more guideance.
Ive given the straight forward way and will wait to see if this helps him.

Though this has nothing to do with the Medion Lol :-))

Well just a update on the laptop,

The first laptop would not load at all so its gone back to Aldi who exchanged it with no problems,

The second one loaded but then kept freezing {could not use it at all} I had to restart several times before it loaded and ran ok,

After doing some investigating with the included software I came to the conclusion that it was Bullguard security that was freezing the computer so removed it and installed Kaspersky 7 and up to yet everything is OK,

So if anyone gets one of these lappys and it wont load start in safe mode and stop Bullguard from starting to see if it works for you as well,
