Lunchtime Deal: Aldi Medion AMD PC $499

Desktop PCs; the functional workhorses of the PC world. Sure, they're not ultrabooks, but they are functional, and at the lower-budget (but decent value) end of the scale sits Aldi's latest desktop offer; an AMD A8-3820 processor, 4GB RAM, 1TB hard drive and Windows Home Premium 64 Bit for $499. Gus over at Lifehacker's done the analysis of the deal, which seems fair but not spectacular. [Aldi via Ozbargain]
