Budget brand, Medion, will be pushing new products through Aldi supermarkets this Australia Day weekend. They include a new desktop PC, a 15.6in notebook, and a 4.5in Android smartphone. The products go on sale from Saturday 24 January, and will be available until stock is exhausted.

The desktop PC is Medion's E4010 E (MD8322) Multimedia PC System, and it's a small-ish Windows 8.1 PC that's based on an AMD A8-7600, quad-core processor. The rest of the configuration includes 4GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, and there is integrated 802.11n Wi-Fi. It has a newer finish than we're used to seeing on Medion desktops, which Medion calls the 'carbon look'. The price is $499 and this includes a keyboard and a mouse.

While we haven't reviewed this new system, we did review a similar Medion system to this one back in August 2014, which featured the same CPU: Medion Akoya E4110 (MD 8239) desktop PC.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
