ALDI – gaming offers from February 25th
In recent years, ALDI PCs have usually offered a decent price-performance ratio, but were no longer as cheap for what was on offer to justify queues in front of the branches. This week, however, a PC from Medion, which is very strong for its price – has long since matured from the ALDI house brand to an established independent manufacturer – is on offer at ALDI. The PC will be available on the ALDI website from Thursday of this week and is extremely good value for money, especially in times of graphics card shortages. A gaming notebook, which will also be available from Thursday, is also worth a look. We look at the details.
The new ALDI gaming PC
The Medion Erazer Engineer X10can be ordered from Thursday, February 25th for 1499 euros. The Intel Core i7-10700 has 32GB RAM (DDR4-2933 MHz) available, there is a 1000GB SSD for storing data – since PCIe is being used, it is obviously an M.2 SSD. There is no exact information about the mainboard, power supply, and case, but this is also a minor matter – because the highlight is an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card. If we add up the prices and calculate for the mainboard, power supply, and case with rather cheap models and also include a Windows license, then we come to around 700 to 750 euros without a graphics card. In this case, the GeForce RTX 3070 makes about 750 euros of the total price. This is significantly more than the price recommendation for the release of the graphics card – but if you are currently looking for a GeForce RTX 3070 to buy online, you will not find it listed as available for less than 1300 euros. In this respect, the Medion PC is a real bargain if you currently absolutely need a powerful gaming PC and that current situation on the graphics card market, which we had recently discussed again. Of course, you should also check other websites beforehand to see which PCs are available there for this price range.
There is a Core i7-10750H (6 cores, 12 threads, up to 5.0 GHz), 16GB DDR4-3200 RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 (6GB). The storage space of the 17.3-inch full HD notebook consists of an M.2 SSD with 1000GB, Windows 10 is included. The notebook measures (closed) about 39.7 by 26.7 centimeters with a thickness of 3.2 centimeters and weighs 2.44 kilograms. Comparable rival notebooks tend to cost from 1350 euros upwards, only one model from Acer is currently cheaper.
PC and notebook are purely online offers
Important to know: PCs and notebooks are only available online. At ALDI-Nord it is clearly visible right next to it, and the countdown indicates that it will start at 12 o’clock sharp. At ALDI-Süd – the links above are from there – the starting time is only 8:00 a.m. so that one could perhaps assume that the branch will be available. But a small 1 above the heading refers to the footnote, which makes it clear: ALDI-Süd also offers that can only be ordered online. Unless ALDI takes any special measures, scalpers should try to snatch the available copies away from normal users with the help of bots, as they did with the RTX 3000 graphics cards and game consoles.
