Sainsburys are selling this Medion Erazer X6811Gaming laptop for £999.

It has a really good spec and reviews reckon it matches other gaming laptops at nearly twice the price:

Gamers - get your game on with this laptop, built especially for you by Medion. Sizzling with technology, it's got everything you need to get the best out of any situation - whether it's unlocking new levels or slaying zombies.

For starters it's got an Intel Core i7-460M processor with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX460M graphics card - with dedicated 1.5GB memory - so games look rich and immersive, with no lag when you're saving the universe.

Sound doesn't trail behind either, as the Erazer has a Dolby Home Theatre certification, two speakers and a sub-woofer for extra beef.

It's got a 4GB memory and 640GB hard disk - and comes with a second hard disk slot to increase storage capacity.

The 15.6" screen is LED backlit and offers an HD-ready resolution of 1366x768. Connectivity is excellent and includes two 3.0 USB ports, two 2.0 USB ports plus Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Firewire - for ultimate speed and plug-and-play versatility.

I'm a bit confused, as both the reviews i've read and also the medion website, talk about the 15.6" Erazer X6811 model (MD97623) as having an Intel Core i5-460M cpu. No option to upgrade. The reviews i've read (cnet and techradar) say there is a 17" screen model that comes with a core i7 processor. On the medion website, sure enough there is a new 17" model MEDION AKOYA X7811 (MD97631) at £899 with a core i7 processor. I suspect that Sainsbury's has got its advertising copy wrong. Can someone clear up the confusion?

Incidentally, both reviews seem very impressed with the 15.6" model as tested with the core i5 cpu. Medion is a german brand with a good reputation. Better known for cheap and cheerful laptops this is their first venture into hard core gaming laptops. Irrespective of which is the correct cpu, i like it. Only slight niggle is that the screen is not full HD resolution. Just wish i had thick end of a thousand quid to blow on it. Heat added.

Well its horses for courses really. A few reviews i've read of the two types of graphics: HD5870M in the MSI laptop you've referenced vs. GTX460M in this here Medion say that although on paper the 5870 is better, that there is barely any noticable difference when playing games. The 460M has 500mg extra dedicated memory so might be better in the long term possibly for more graphics intensive games and this coupled with the fact that the Medion laptop has a Core i7 processor keeps it in the running IMO.

I thought medion usually gave 3-year warranties; but the Sainsburys page say 1-year.

I guess if you want the gaming performance it's worth the money (this will play almost any game at a higher resolution than the provided screen) but most of us don't need a 72watt graphics card chewing up the battery ;)

Surprised this is so cold. Dont forget possible 2% Quidco 'every little helps'. oops, wrong supermarket.

BTW the Sainsbury specific model numbers are different to those advertised on the Medion website - so it is an Core i7 cpu on offer (Model ref MD97672). Sainsbury's also do another Medion Erazer laptop at what looks to be the same spec except it has an model in every respect but with an an Core i3-370M (2.40GHz) cpu at £799.99 (Model ref MD97682).

iirc the amount of memory on a card only really comes into play when you are raising the resolution displayed.
your screen is of low res so i expect that 1gb is going to be exactly the same as a 1.5gb version. the inherent performance of the card is more likely to be a bigger factor.
right now playing games both machines can most likely max settings (or close to) at 1366*768.
so performance wise they are 'the same' however with the msi you can raise the resolution used and probably keep much of the graphical detail giving a better 'experience' .
if the overall cpu/gpu package is infact better with the medion then you'll need an external display to match the msi really.
in the same way for the graphics you probably wont see much difference - you probably wont see much difference with the processors either.
the screen resolution is also of benefit with normal nongaming use and movie playback whereas the 768 vertical resolution is very limiting imo for general use.
