Was looking for an affordable gaming PC, £700 with a GTX460M seems like a good deal.

No blu-ray is a a bummer. Although having said that the screen resolution isn't brilliant
#3
Wasn't there a Sandybridge icore7 listed in the last couple of days for around this price? I think it was a Dell XPS with a 17" screen too

Not bad. The 460GTX would mean that as a gaming rig it has some promise. I am not sure why the I3 gets bad press, its at the very least on par with the best core duo/core 2 you could buy before. The dell may be a slightly better rounded system, but your choice may come to the question of Medion Brand/Value/Reliability and wether you want the extra grunt in the GFX department.

Incidentally, one of the important questions to know the answer to in terms of mobile parts is what RAM is part of that GFX. In many cases they trim price by using DDR3 instead of the better/faster GDDR4/5 and its a very good idea to find out the exact spec.
(Dell quite often supplies GDDR - but as ever, check it on anything where you are gonna spend the dosh)

At least a constructive comment ^^

Well, to be honest I did not know about Medion's reputation until I posted this thread, even though Dell's reputation has not always been good either. But I must admit that the new Dell XPS looks attractive spec- and design-wise.

Well, threads and info is what things are all about. My take is that Medion tend to have mixed results and are a 'value' brand. What this means in real world use is 'make sure you cover the warranty' - and don't over pay.

Sometimes the value brands only come unstuck when the warranty gets tested and its on the customer support side you may find them wanting. You'll also almost always find some people buy the value units and get 5 years out of it, so its really a case of doing a bit of research and pehaps taking a punt.

I don't tend to hold Dell ahead of anyone, but except in one area, I find their warranty and support to be a level up on many, especially if you take the extra coverage. And their prices tend to be competitive on base builds but expensive for extras (add the extra's yourself later, its cheaper)
