£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).

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
