    Alternative to Aldi's Quad Core £350 PC

    Hey guys, have any one any ideas where (or advertisors have in stock) I can get something like this, for the same sort of money:

    ALDI - Thursday Special Buys 7th January 2010

    I though it sounded like a good deal, nice spec PC for a nice price - sadly so did everyone else and the sold them all this morning! Soooo, having failed to get one of these to take home with me to day, to replace a failing PC my wife runs her business with, and having looked at the usual E-Buyer, Dabs, etc, can anyone help match this deal? I guess it must be possible, or was it simply a loss leader to make me advertise Aldi on here?...

    Were it not for building a new PC in the summer, I would probably have bought* one from Aldi today. Think it's a cracking deal for off the shelf.








    *Well, queued in the freezing cold and the snow with other hoards until the doors opened at 9am and everyone ran like madmen to the tills.

    Closest I can find that sort of spec for is > £500 at Ebuyer.

    Definitely a loss leader.

    It's a pretty amazing loss leader! Selling a loaf of bread at a loss is generally not going to lose the supermarket money - people don't go just to buy the bread, they buy other things as well and may end up spending even more than they intended. Selling a PC at (say) £150 loss seems a bit extreme - you've got to buy an awful lot of beans to make up for that :-)
