Aldi have launched their most expensive Specialbuy ever – and it’s perfect for gamers looking to play Fortnite, Elden Ring and Call of Duty. The budget supermarket has released three gaming computers, but they come with a hefty price tag.
The Medion gaming PCs come with three storage options ranging from 512GB to 1TB, and are priced between £949.99 and £1,149.99.
They’re some of the priciest middle-aisle items launched by the German retailer, save for a Scheppach Dumper that was £999.99, £50 more expensive than the cheapest PC. Other eye-watering prices Aldi have seen include a thermal imager for £899.99 and e-bikes for £699.99.
The Medion i7 RTX3060ti 16GB 512GB SSD , priced at £1,099.99. is said to ‘bring your gaming experience to the next level’, according to Aldi.
The product description reads: “With the gaming industry booming ensure you are kept up to date with the latest tech. The Medion i7 RTX3060ti 16GB 512GB SSD desktop gaming PC will transform your gaming experience to the next level.
“With this amazing i7-12700 12th generation core, this PC will have your games running smoothly with an incredible graphic display.”
A NVIDIA Geforce RTX3060ti LHR graphics card means that most games will be compatible with the PC, including Fortnite, Elden Ring and Call of Duty. The desktop gaming computer also comes with a wired USB keyboard and optical USB mouse, Windows 11 Home with a one month free trial of Microsoft Office 365.
Shoppers have been full of praise for the PCs, with one writing: “Fantastic specification for the money, nice looking machine and quiet, delivers a solid 80-100fps in Rust with all the settings on max, son is a very happy gamer again.”
Another added: “Good price, good delivery and enjoyable to use.Price for specs is pretty good in comparison to what is currently available. Runs Valorant, Apex etc at 240+ FPS. Just have to take a hit on the quality a bit, so I can’t complain.
“Also, the fan’s speed increases only when needed, so the pc is quiet. Some downsides to this though is that I had to use an Ethernet cable to get internet and only 500gb of ssd storage with no hdd. Other than that, I was thoroughly impressed.”
One dubbed it ‘excellent value’, adding: “Great spec for price would recommend my son is very happy and it does everything he wants it to and more fast delivery and well packaged.”
The PCs are only available online and are available to pre-order, with an estimated dispatch date of Monday, April 18.
