£500 Medion PC8630 All in one PC

Sainsburys sells the Medion PC8630 for £500, a price that includes free delivery as well as 998 Nectar points, worth £5 instore.

The computer comes with a 23.6in 1,920 x 1,080 pixel display that stands on a tripod-like stand. It runs on an Intel Core i3-3220 processor which is a dual-core model clocked at 3.3GHz with an Intel HD 2500 Graphics onboard.

There’s also 4GB of RAM, a 1TB hard disk drive, Windows 8, a HDMI port, four USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports, an optical drive, Wi-Fi, a card reader, a webcam, speakers, a keyboard and a mouse.

Medion, which is based in Germany, has been acquired last year by the Chinese tech giant Lenovo but still operates as a separate entity.

All in all, it is a very decent all in one computer although, you would probably spend less on a more powerful desktop with a stand-alone monitor.

The PC8630 comes with a few preloaded applications like MS Office 2010 and a 90-day trial to Symantec. Possible improvements to the device includes adding more onboard system memory and adding a SSD (or a USB flash drive).
