Seems like good value- seeing as the prices are inclusive of VAT and shiping.
One thing from the pdf file though- they are all equipped with desktop processors- not sure what that means for battery longevity......

Means shorter (I know you know, but do I know ?)

So unless you are looking for a desktop replacment (Around a power socket all the time) probably not what you want

I recently bought a Gericom laptop from Aldi and it deffo has a P4 M processor. WCPUID confirms that. WinXP lists the laptop as the Hummer modal?

http://www.gericom.com/Abverkauf/Datenblätter/251S6.pdf

Its defo a 533MHz fsb 3.06GHz desktop P4 processor (at least in the 799 sterling model)- I only checked one set of specs, didn't have the time to look at the others).

If it was the P4M chips they were selling- it would be the most fantastic value ever.

Ps- Only two of the laptops have dedicated graphics cards- the others have a collection of SiS and Intel extreme graphics chipsets, with shared memory (having had a look at some of the other specs).

Even so- at the quoted prices its not bad going at all.


Specs are as follows:

The ALDI one has the GeforceFX Go with 128mb dedicated RAM. Can't seem to fine it on the Gericom site though? All the Hummers seem to have the ****e intel extreme graphics.

I thought it had a regular P4 CPU in it when I bought it originally but it was happy days when I realized it was a P4M @ 3.06Ghz (HT)
Intel 82845G chipset I think.

Still hard on the battary though. And only burns DVD-Rs at 2x ....ah well.
I'll try a WCPUID screenshot later at home.
