I know nothing about PCs - all I know is that my current one is a 6 year old Vaio that is so slow now and struggles to run the new Lightroom I have very quickly and has totally crashed twice in the last year when i have had to re-boot / restore the whole lot.
I want something faster / better powered and was going to look in the new year until I saw this Medion and wondered.
Yes it is at Aldi and I have heard some Medions have given problems but personally I have a 4 year old 122 medion laptop that never caused me to use the 3 year free warranty you get with Aldi and is running well now and I also have a Nedion screen that has been a good buy again with no problems at a great price.
Do you think the linked one represents good value for money with the 21.5" screen or would you wait until Windows 7 had bedded in and get a PC bigger screen in the new year?

Grateful for any advice as money is tight and I need to make the right buy when ready. I can pass on this one for now and wait until new year as planned if no good but tempted given the three year return to base warranty and my personal experience of the brand.
