Aldi 3D PrinterThe new Balco 3D printer, which costs £299.99 went on sale at the end of November (and has already sold out). No wonder really as it was priced at a staggering 67 per cent less than a similar model on sale from Curry's PC World, the UP! Plus 2, priced at £899.99.

The Aldi device allows users to print designs up to 20cm wide and 18cm tall, directly from a Micro SD memory card.3D Printer at Aldi

Mmmm, I wonder if I'll get one in my stocking this year?!
