These any good?
#2
thanks for posting, screen looks like a let down, but everything else looks pretty good about it.
#3
Medion decent mid range? I see these laptops in the lower end of the market. For £450 you should be able to find a better brand with the same configuration except the video card maybe.
banned#4
That's a very low end graphics card. I actually think the built in intel graphics are quicker so why have they added it.

Don't expect any gaming performance from it.
#5
does it still have a dvd drive? i see 2 supplied dvd but no mention of a drive from my quick skimming

if it still has a drive (and so space to expand further) then its decent enough but if theyve removed drive just then its basically nothing much imo

I can't see a cd drive being a major factor in choosing a laptop in this day, you can probably buy a cheap usb one if you really need it

graphics isn't good enough to play games at good frame rate. But if you just want a fast laptop this would be idea I guess.

ofc its a factor - its a spare expansion bay if nothing else
but thats my point - just seems to be a regular laptop with the dvd taken out... thats it
#9
would this be able to do video editing etc or is it i7 or higher only thank you
#10
Avoid can't see the point of these mid range gaming laptops. Won't run anything properly and its not something your but to be a nice slim portable laptop with a descent screen.
#11
Sorry - not bad -but certainly no deal - would have to be £70 - £80 cheaper to be a deal . I've been watching the Medion range for the last 6 months -nothing new here :(
#12
Just another mid-range laptop! There's nothing hot about the deal.
#13
The screen is a let down in this day and age, but you could do MUCH worse
#14
Medion= cold
#15
If you can ditch the SSD (which isn't an expensive upgrade anyway) then they have this with a full HD screen which is undoubtedly the more important part - much harder to replace later:

On another note, didn't even know Medion were Lenovo owned - hopefully that makes them a better brand then!

Hardly Lenovo are know for terrible customer service, and outside of the Thinkpad range they use pretty shoddy materials.

as for this laptop

Its aimed as a mid gaming console, yet that 825m is a terrible dedicated graphics card, my XPS L502x has a GT540 from three years ago that will out perform this easily. Its strange id never recommend a laptop for gaming but a dedicated car should add some grunt and its not much more capable infact the Intel Iris Pro Graphics outperform this card.

I doubt it's fooling anyone as a gaming machine - if that's what you want though much better off going to PC Specialist. It seems pretty mediocre for what's on offer. I suppose it might be good for someone who's not into tinkering (e.g. fitting an SSD or installing an OS) and just wants a faster than normal machine.

Not a gaming laptop, the gpu is poor for this money you would be better off getting an i7 with no dedicated graphics.

Lets say you're after a gaming laptop to play at say 1080p with high settings then open http://www.cpubenchmark.com and go to the searchable gpu list.
you're looking for a minimum of about 2000 points, results will vary from game to game so best to check the benchmarks for your game of choice prior to purchase. notebookcheck is good for that.

this is a bit like getting a performance diesel, its naff at everything.

seems like mixed reviews on this one. lots of gaming talk but thats not what i was after when looking at this laptop. im an engineering graduate so im looking for a laptop that will run CAD software well, as well as some video editing using the gopro suite. anyone point me in the right direction for a good/better laptop then this to meet these needs for £500-£600. cheers

I think this laptop is a good balance for you, however you might want to consider upgrading the RAM to 16GB.

How hard would it be to change the graphics card and upgrade the RAM? I'm also looking for a half decent video editing laptop.
#23
Good price for an above average speed cpu = a good deal.
Also I don't think you can upgrade graphics/gpu but ram yes.

Based on the picture in the review I previously linked: RAM=easy, HDD=easy, WIFI=easy, GPU=Ahh, forget it.
I am not sure what half-decent means to you. I would consider this half-decent after a RAM upgrade already.
#25
Medion is known for its value for monry. Normally I don't recommend wellknown brands, but in this case I got to say I have had very bad experience with Medion laptops (had 3 in the past). Normally having over heating problem after a year or two (even for normal office work), so don't expect to game at all on it. I would personally pay 100 pounds more for a better known brand, but the spec is pretty good on this laptop.
#26
Never buy these laptops. Rubbish company

ram and HDD are upgradeable. graphics cards in laptops are virtually impossible to upgrade.

mate check your facts first. your GT540 will not outperform 825m!!
it will be on par with the build in Intel 4600.

I agree with most. this laptop should have had FullHD screen to be even close to a hot deal.

Got a friend who pronounces MEDION as "MEH-DAH-YON" and another that pronounces it as "MI-DION" (like Celine Dion). What's the correct way? :D
