I was in Berlin a few days ago, during which time I got to see a close friend a couple of times. He is a computer system engineer, semi-retired and working as a consultant. Last Thursday his wife and he left for about 10 months in the Philippines. What he is doing there is helping people on one of the islands a long way from Luzon island and Manila to set up networks and use information technology. he has taken two tablets he bought from Aldi for €150 each. It is a Medion LifeTab E10310 that is normally about €300 that they had on special offer. He looked at their normal cheapo Life Tab E7310 that sells for less than €100 as well. He went to other people he knows who test hardware. The very cheap one is OK for games but little else, the battery has about half the life of all others. However the more expensive, despite battery life being shortish, seemed perfectly robust and user friendly for him to take to give to his people in the Philippines.
I have no idea whether the half price offer is available here in France, certainly Asda have them on a special offer in the UK, but not as low as the Aldi offer in Germany. I had no time to get to an Aldi store whilst there otherwise I might have bought one on chance. Apparently the offer is open until the middle of this month so I may get one of the people we were working with to pick one up for me if it seems worth it.
Does anybody know the tab and have an opinion? The prices are dropping rapidly, so is it worth chancing it just to save money?
