Just saw this too over on Laptops, i'm tempted, very tempted. Now what about that 16GB Atom Processor!
Well, you know, if the price is right i'll probably buy.

No price on the Aldi site but I've seen various reference to Aldi selling them for €399 in other parts of Europe since July.

Most likely to be if things follow the normal trend.

Surely not!!
I know that theres an acer available with the atom processor and thats about 300e so surely the aldi one would cost less.I am very tempted, though

XP and all!!

This is a re-badged msi wind (like the advent 4211) except I'm pretty sure this one has the 6 cell battery whereas the msi wind and advent 4211 only have a 3 cell battery so handy for the extra battery life. Also I'm pretty sure that doesn't have draft n like the site says it does, might be wrong though.

AFAIK the MSI Wind has the 6-cell. I have the advent myself which I bought in Dixons Swords (now a Currys) for €399.

Just as likely to be a 3-cell on this given it;s a medion, no? If so, from experience expect ~2hr battery from full. Disaster tbph, adverts here I come :/

Yeah I think I'm wrong. This comes with a 3 cell (the msi wind does as well). I could have sworn it was a 6 cell for some reason.

Edit: Yeah it's only a 3 cell, this doesn't have bluetooth, has a .3mp camera and has draft n whereas the wind has a 1.3mp camera, bluetooth and wifi g.
