    I bought a Medion Akoya E6300 D desktop computer in September 2009. It has a three year guarantee with it and the hard drive has failed. I phoned them up and they said that they would send a courier out with a new hard drive. However, does anyone know if I would be able to send the computer back and get my money back for it, as I am looking to buy a new car in the next few months, and the extra 420 quid would definitely come in handy.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Unless it specifically says in their T & C's of purchase that they will refund... which I highly doubt would be the case... sorry buddy!

    Indeed! Although I must admit if you brought the machine from Aldi, what did you expect?

    I bought it online, not from Aldi. Pasting the name of the machine into a search engine and clicking on the first review you could find just then, were we? Oh dear.

    Looking at the Medion Akoya E6300 D's spec and the price at which it is sold I cannot help but think that the laptop I recently bought for £450 has a better processor, more RAM, a much bigger hard drive, Windows 7 was pre-installed (as opposed to Vista), it also had a much much better GPU and guess what? It came with a build in monitor!

    Really bro, that desktop is BAD and I cannot fathom why someone would buy it for £420 when they can build a killer desktop for the same amount. Even pre-built Dells or Sonys are better...

    so you've owned it for almost a year and a half. If the shop was mad enough to give a refund you could probably only get a fraction of the original cost back. They've only really got to fix it unless you can show the design is flawed and that the pc wasn't fit for purpose (which seeing as you've had it over a year isn't going to be easy)

    I find it ridiculous that you want to return the whole machine after using it for over a year. Just "borrowing" it for a while were you?

    It's under warranty so they do have to fix it. The new hard drive arrived just before new year.
