Hi folks,

First post

Seems an excellent deal for the spec

Intel® Core i7 Processor i7-720QM 1.6GHz
4GB DDR3 (8GB max)
500 GB SATA Hard Disk Drive 7200 rpm
15.6 Diagonal High-Definition LED HP BrightView Display
NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 230M,
Up to 2815 MB total graphics memory with 1 GB dedicated DDR3
Wireless technologies 802.11 b/g/n; Bluetooth® wireless networking
Operating System: Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

Although I understand the battery life isn't amazing but you can't really complain considering its quad core! :)

i7-720QM vs T4300
Gefore GT 230M vs 4500 on board.
These two laptops are really not in the same league.

Dell Studio 17 was less than this.

Well worth a stab, if it works it brings a great price for the spec' laptop into a league of its own!
#13
you maybe right :thumbsup:
BMW the wheels fall to bits and crack up and not covered under warranty :oops:
Fiat low power eco friendly and good warranty ;-)

Google HP Nvidea or Nvidea defect. Please do some research before parting with the best part of £800. I think this deal is cold

I heard about the serious problems with the older nVidia chips but are there still problems with the newer 40nm chips such as the GT 230M used in this laptop?

v. good spec but you are very likely to need to use the aldi warranty i.e. they (Medion) are not as reliable as HP and some of the other makes imho
#17
AfloyInt - I've got both an HP laptop and a Medion laptop. They have been both equally reliable. Neither ever needed fixing.

The whole HP vs Sony vs Medion vs Acer debate is IMO bogus. These machines all use the same 3rd party processors (Intel or AMD), the same 3rd party graphics cards (Nvidia or ATI), the same 3rd party hard drives (load of suppliers) & the same Windows operating system. Add to this the fact that all of these laptops are assembled by nameless Chinese & Taiwanese subcontractors who all probably get contacts based on the lowest price quoted & you come to the conclusion that 'brand' means nothing.

I will always go for the best spec at the lowest price and for me, right now, the Medion X-7811 is the one that stands head and shoulders above the rest.

I didn't think the Outlet one was the freak one, seemed fairly mundane by Outlet standards, but the one I thought was freaky was:

Dell studio 17, i7-820QM , 17.3 High Definition+ Multi Touch LED with TL, 6144MB, 1TB Hard drive, £787.54
#21
Yes what happened to that one? Wish I would have jumped on it at the time...

I had medion netbook and it started to go wrong after 8 months or so I had to return it for a refund. yes this has coloured my impression of their laptops. My brother has an HP laptop which is still fine after 2+ yrs. I would buy a medion again but only if had a long warranty..... Medion are ok quality but I do think HP laptops will last longer...
#23
If the X-7811 gets sold through Aldi chain rather than the Medion online shop, you should get the usual 3 year warranty that Aldi provide.
#24
where can i get myself one of them medion diect x11 laptops they look awesome,does aldi stil do them? and much are they?

wow, the medion specs are amazing, any news on pricing and when aldi'll sell it ?

Agharta, did your outlet laptop come with a 3 yr accidental damage cover?
#26
that medion laptop isnt getting released in the uk i emailed medion about it this is what they says
"The X8711 won't be launched in the UK I'm afraid, but we will have a similar machine available on our webshop in Q3.

I can only suggest you keep an eye on the webshop later this year..

I hope that this is of some assistance."

According to this site I guess this is not one of the affected machines?

I was personally put off of the i7 processors in the dells after their throttling problems (although PC Pro suggested a laptop cooler solved the problem) but wondered what people think of this for comparison:

Start with E-value code N0074908 and upgrade to Windows 7 Professional (then you can use the 8% discount code - H509J3FP3TWQMZ) (alternatively use another upgrade to take the price before discounts an delivery above £999)

Comes in at £698.28 delivered.

From notebook check I gather the graphics would be an upgrade but you lose the wireless n.

You are also looking at a 17" screen not 15" - sorry didn't realise when I started typing this - but will post it now in case it is any good for anyone? In fact I've almost talked myself into it (especially if quidco would track to!)

What laptops are better for this money? (I have a feeling you are going to point us in the direction of Dell) If you have any good suggestions (not dell) then do share.

Also your point about the screen being rubbish is debatable, no? I'd agree if it was a 20" + as the resolution would ney be good. But for the screen size on that laptop the resolution is not noticably worse than an equivalent 1080, from what I understand...

Thanks.
