The medion akoya currently has £100 off plus an addition 3% quidco, looks like a great spec for the money?

Yeah I saw that earlier whilst looking for a monitor, seemed a decent spec for the money
#2
Link doesnt work?

4GB Memory with 32-bit Windows 7?

Poor.
#5
Lupeto, what system would you recommend for around £350 - £450, dont want to do anything major in terms of gaming but dont want anything that is really slow, and I cant build it myself!!? Cheers
#6
Lupeto, please clarify why that is poor? Seems a good deal to me?

A 32 bit system can only "see" 3 of the 4GB memory so selling it as a 4GB system is devious at least.

Windows will only be able to see a maximum of 4GB of memory...maximum memory available to the system may be less, depending on whether the graphics card uses some system memory.

Also, you won't be able to upgrade past 4GB in the future without changing to a 64 bit operating system.

It isn't too bad, if you don't intend on ever upgrading the computer, but it's a pretty poor decision on the part of the manufacturer, as 64 bit windows is about the same price as 32 bit windows.

Are you in a real need for a new computer right this minute?

I would honestly recommend monitoring deals over the next couple of months...Intel have brought out a new range of processors (the ones with 4 digits after the processor, e.g i3-2100). Systems using the older range of processors (the ones with 3 digits after the processor, e.g. i3-540) are going to become much better value.

We're only beginning to see the very start of such price reductions...they will become much deeper very soon.

The thing is, this isn't a bad deal otherwise.

I would struggle to build a comparable system for less than £400, but that would include 64-bit windows. You're getting it built, installed and a warranty for less than £50, which in itself is a bargain.

If building, the one thing I'd change is the processor...a dual-core i5 doesn't give a great deal of benefit over a dual-core i3, but you're paying an extra £60 for it. Pay another £15 and you can get a quad-core i5.

I'd personally go for a i3-540 processor...it offers much better value for money.

Thanks for explaining, I know someone who recently bought a PC and it came with both 32 and 64 bit, and he was finding some of his software wasn't compatatble with both sytems?
#12
Stupid about the RAM but Medion are far from the only manufacturer to do this. I was looking at a new laptop 18 months ago and the amount of offers with 32 bit windows and 4gb of RAM was astonishing.

This is a good deal (but a bit stupid at the same time) as long as you are not using it for much more than general use, which it will cope with beautifully.
#13
This is (IMHO) a good deal for the money, I don't see why people 'diss' it because it will only use 4Gb RAM and 32bit (in actual fact 32bit Windows will only be able to see about 3.5Gb RAM anyway)
From my own experiences 3.5Gb with this sort of system (dedicated GPU and fast CPU) will be more than adequate.

FWIW I have an older Medion with 32bit W7 & 4Gb RAM and a almost new Dell XPS which has 64bit W7 and a massive 8Gb RAM TBH I don't find much difference in the performance of these 2 systems and have yet to see any benefit from using 64bit, both run Photoshop CS5 without problem.

The only advantage that I see with 64bit is the ability to use more than 3.5Gb RAM but as I stated 3.5Gb seems plenty anyway. Also take into account that 64bit with 4Gb installed will not be any more effective than 32bit with the same RAM because 64bit actually uses more memory to give the same performance with the same RAM in a 32bit system.

My 4GB/32bit laptop only saw UNDER 3.2GB of the 4GB ram so I took it back for an upgrade.
They wouldn't so I got my money back.

As a user of HUKD I am NOT in the habit of paying for "ghost" specifications which only serve to boost the price!

I know that benchmarks aren't an absolute measure of CPU performance, but they are a useful tool for performance comparison. Here's the reason why I believe that the CPU in this system is poor value:

i3-540 - around £85 - Passmark=2811 => 33.07 marks per pound
i5-650 - around £140 - Passmark=3117 => 22.26 marks per pound
i5-760 - around £160 - Passmark=4530 => 28.31 marks per pound

Whilst I think this system is good value, I do agree that the i5-650 is an odd choice especially in a system with a dedicated GPU, as I understand it the i5-650 has on board graphics whilst the i5-750 which is faster does not but as this Medion has it's own GPU what is the point of installing a slower chip with integrated graphics?

You may not like it but it is not possible for any system running 32bit Windows to use more than about 3.2-3.5Gb ram no matter how much RAM is installed
