Discount store Aldi is selling a desktop PC with triple-core processor for $399 and Best Buy is offering a Blu-ray player under its house brand Insignia for $230, which isn’t that far away from the most expensive upscaling DVD players anymore.

Aldi’s triple-core PC may be another sign of AMD’s aggressive strategy to push its triple-core processors, basically quad-core CPUs with one defunct core, into the entry-level PC market. The desktop system, sold under the Medion brand, comes with a Phenom X3 8450 CPU, an AMD 780G-based motherboard, an ATI HD 3450 graphics card, 3 GB memory, a WD 640 GB hard drive a DVD burner and Windows Vista Premium.

The system can be purchased for $399, which, however, excludes optional speakers ($10), a keyboard and mouse ($20) and a 19” LCD ($150).
