Aldi Australia has waded into PC gaming yet again, with a new gaming PC and array of accessories going on sale tomorrow, Saturday, October 19. They're all Medion products – Aldi has exclusive distribution for the German brand in Australia – and the PC in particular is fairly decent value for money.
For $2,000, the Medion Erazer X67127 gets you an i5-9400, 16GB DDR4-2666, a 512GB SSD (plus 1TB HDD), and a GeForce RTX 2070. Our reviewer Nick Ross took a run at it last week, describing it as "fast, great value and high quality (opens in new tab)".
The companion Medion curved monitor didn't fare quite as well in our testing: the $400 Erazer X52773 can't quite compete with other products in the price range, so said our reviewer, but if you're into the ceremony of hitting up Aldi first thing on a Saturday morning trolley in tow, I guess it's an option.
That's not all: there's a mechanical keyboard for $80 (opens in new tab), a gaming headset for $70 (opens in new tab), and a gaming mouse for $50 (opens in new tab). The mechanical keyboard has "100% anti-ghosting keys" and a detachable palm rest, while the headset packs 53mm drivers and is compatible with 7.1 virtual surround sound. The mouse has a PixArt PMW 3360 12,000dpi sensor, and Omron switches that will grant you up to 20 million clicks, if you're counting.
These aren't available online: you'll need to trek into your nearest Aldi store to pick up any of these items, should you wish to.
