Originally (dubiously!) priced at £799 and reduced for a long while to the £399 region, this laptop is now labelled instore as a 'summer spectacular' at £250 - a great price for anyone wanting a general use laptop.

"The Medion Mam 2080's low price in part is thanks to its processor - it uses a 1.5GHz Via C7-M.

It also has a dual layer DVD writer, a 15inch screen, a 40GB hard disk drive and 256MB memory. It weighs 2.4kg."

I would reccomend this for general internet browsers, office tasks, students and kids. This comes with Win XP hence the price reduction, Woolworths website has a Medion laptop with a higher spec and Vista. Noticed this in Leeds but was assured it was nationwide so grab it whilst you can :)

Great find, especially if it is Nationwide.

Does anyone know which processor it uses, I would think it will be a Celeron at that price but you just never know, it could be an older Pentium stuck in there and if it is then it's an greater find.

As stated in the OP, this uses a VIA C7-M processor running at 1.5GHz.
From the benchmarks I've seen, this means that it's roughly equivalent to a p3-800/1000ish
Now, this means that you can web browse, read emails, use open office (not sure about MS office) with no real annoyance at the speed of things. This is not, however, a machine for playing the latest games on.

The low power usage of this laptop is the reason I bought one, lugging around a computer that may give me 90 minutes of use if I'm lucky isn't something I want to do. With the VIA C7-M, you'll usually get 3-4 hours of usage.

The DVD drive is an external which allows you to drag it around with you or not, DVD/CD drives can use a fair bit of power as with anything that uses motors, so having this external allows you to leave it behind and keeps the laptop itself fairly thin.

Depending on what you plan to use it for, you may want to buy some more ram for this. Having only one thing open at a time and you'll probably not notice any slow-down, more than one and you may find yourself wanting another 256 MB. I bought another 512MB from Crucial for around £35 inc postage and the machine is much more usable for me now, YMMV.

This is a low-spec, low-power portable computer with fairly long battery life. I bought mine refurbished for £200 - which I'd recommend again. £250 and it's getting a bit more unclear as you can pick up p3-1GHz for about £150 on ebay that will allow you to do most, if not all, of the things that the C7-M will.

If anyone has any questions on this machine, feel free to ask

Cheers for that mate, I should read the posts more clearly next time. http://img246.imageshack.us/img246/8399/thumbsup4kk.gif

a good price for a laptop, albeit very basic by todays standards. I would suggest anyone who can stretch a few pounds more to go for the £328 one from dell and get a battery upgrade for another £12

Yeah, I did... "this laptop is now labelled instore" and "Noticed this in Leeds but was assured it was nationwide" (I wouldn't have had to ask if it was on the web...)

The reason the Woolworths site loads when you click go to deal is because I used HUKD's 'select a store' which fills it out automatically. ;-)

wont be nationwide as this is an old laptop might be a few stores with one or two left but you will be lucky to find one
#12
It is worth to call your local store to ask if they have it in stock and at what price. You can find your local store's telephone number if you go to "Store Locator" on the main website.

None in store at Central Milton Keynes.

Voted HOT.

Good price for a basic laptop, for someone starting off or just needs it for general use, but I would save up another few pounds and go for the dell one from post #10.

Lots of things that are labelled instore are also available on website so Jasonrat is correct in saying that you do not state instore only. It would be helpful if you can amend title to say Instore.
Thanks

Well i think it was made perfectly clear it was instore. :whistling: Besides a quick search on the woolies web would take you less than 2 mins to see that it is not on there. Anyway seems to be a very good price.:thumbsup:

:cry: :-( I bought one from Tchibo really good spec in Dec 1995 an MD95453 - it got stolen recently - so now need to replace - I would have another of these if I could despite some iffy criticsms of Medion, I only had to contact them to get some set up stuff sorted (am very much a novice really) it cost £899 and presume for the same spec it should cost less now it also came with an excellent warranty so much pxxd off that it's gone. Can any of you whiz kids recommend another, good for web, photos, music, it's all v confusing, the one I had also had tv/radio reception, wireless etc etc - all singing really. any suggestions? thank you

The one you are quoting is £429 not £328 that's the lower spec laptop.

Oops I take that back they have reduced the price.
