Shame you only get 12 months warranty. The beauty of buying Medion stuff from ALDI is that you get 3 years warranty. Worth quite a lot in the case of a laptop.
#2
good price
#3
Good spec for price , my median lasted 18 months. Motherboard went puts me off 12 month warranties now. I used it a heck of a lot though. Not putting people off just be careful about warranties. Voted hot for spec and price.

OTOH I bought mine in May 2005 and it's still working fine and with the original battery!

interesting...

Ever soo strange this laptop. Looking around, no one else has it, not even Medion. They have another higher model with weaker specs:

Heat for spotting this.

How is this not getting more heat? Seems ultra hot to me.

good spec for the money heat added

Can't believe this stayed so cold - it's an i5!!! lol.

Maybe because the title doesn’t say much about the spec! If the title said something like below I think it would get hotter:

i5 2.53GHz, 640GB, 4GB, GeForce GT 425M 1GB, USB3, Freeview Tuner

Good deal - thanks op.
Shame about only 12 month warranty though. Having looked at Sainsbury's extended warranty cover it will be an extra £139.99 for 3 years cover or £269.99 for 5 years cover - does anybody know of a less expensive option for cover for this laptop please?
#12
nice.
#13
Can I just say, I have this at home now (you can buy this instore), it doesn't include a tv tuner nor bluetooth
#14
Seems a good price for the spec, anything close to this as I have 500 to spend?

just a simple google came up with this. Really wanted this laptop, until I found that the older model had been downgraded to a i5 processor, so was going to get the Samsung RF510 in its place (and about £300 more!). I've heard that Medion are great for reliablity, just not aswell known as the likes of Samsung and Sony etc. Does anyone know if this has a HD screen(im not good at reading specs quickly)? Also, does it come with the 64 bit version of Windows 7, apparently it's better than 32 bit? Should I buy???

I didn't buy it online, I bought it at the store and it's not advertised on the box as having it. I'm not too fussed, just noted it when I got it.

Don't know about HD screen. At a guess yes. It's 32 bit but comes with a 64bit recovery disk and I don't know how or if I should use it.

Very early impressions are that it's very powerful, quiet and easy to use.
The lights (for wifi, ac, caps lock) are bright and distracting - might have to put some black tape over them.
Keyboard is average (might be because I've been spoiled with a macbook keyboard)

Not had chance to really test anything yet though. Just very nice having an new, clean, pure, virgin laptop that's ultra fast.
#21
My guess is the P6624's screen is much the same as the screen on the P6620 I'm typing this message on. It's not a Full HD screen, just your bog standard 1368 x 768 screen. The main thing to note about the screen is that it has a matt finish which I think is great. I really don't like those glossy screens. All those reflections are such a distraction.

Like my P6620, the P6624 comes with 32 bit Windows installed but you get two set of Windows system discs in the box, one 32 bit, the other 64, so you can do a full 64 bit reinstall if you want. Personally, I'm ok with 32 bit because of the better compatibility with games (Bioshock still has problems with 64 bit for example).

Am seriously considering buying one of these. However with Sandy Bridge coming out early next year and Bulldozer maybe mid year, despite being a good deal, I can easily imagine regretting buying it down the road. Tricky!
#22
Sorry, what is the Sandy Bridge and Bulldozer? Haven't heard anything about this and just tried a quick google to find just loads of jargon.

Sandy Bridge is the name of the name of new processors from Intel and Bulldog is AMD, but if you wait around for the next model all the time, you'll be waiting for ever.

Quite simply for the price you can't beat this, normally you'll get an I3 with onboard graphics, less ram and storage (been looking recently for brother).
#24
abit confused....
why 32bit is installed instead of 64bit when it has 4GB RAM?
#25
well I've just contacted sainsburys to see how long this offer will last for. Hopefully by CES (apparently the date for Intel to release Sandy Bridge) I can make my mind up from the gadget websites recommendations.What does Sandy Bridge do that the normal i5 processor doesnt?

Sandy Bridge is being released in less than 2 weeks which is a little short of forever.

From what I’ve read Sandy Bridge is a much bigger deal for mobile quads than dual cores. That’s because for the first time the Quad core CPUs will be at 32nm and have integrated graphics which means lower power consumption, higher clock speeds, better performance and the ability to use switchable graphics for the first time which means better battery life for general usage.
Core i3 & i5 already have most of those features so I don’t expect Sandy Bridge dual core to be such a big improvement although it should still offer some solid gains.

That’s probably why it seems that Intel is releasing the mobile quads first in about 10 days with the rest to follow in February or later.
So there maybe some deals on Core i3 and i5 laptops which will be worth taking as at first new mobile CPUs tend to only appear in higher priced systems.
But if I was after a mobile Quad I would definitely wait for Sandy Bridge.
This Medion seems very good value even considering what might happen in the next month or so.

Can anyone give me an idea of battery life and heat (while on lap) for this model? If it can actually do 3.5 hours with light use then I think I'll go for this but I don't want to buy it and find it can only do a couple of hours.
#29
Yea other poster is right the xps costs a lot more for slightly less spec, unless you add lots of optionals to bring it up to same spec and spend even more money....

This laptop is unbelievable value for the horse power. If only I lived near a Sainsbury's.

#33
Based on my experience with my P6620, I'd say you would be very lucky to get a couple of hours of battery use with the Medion P6624. The batttery in the P6624 isn't that huge and both the i5-460M and the Nvidia 425M can be quite power hungry.
#34
Thjis is an excellently specced laptop for the money, it really is... it will be good for a couple of years at least.

All you luddites talking about "omg wot is Sandy Bridge and wot duz it meen 4 me"... ffs... its a new architecture and not even out yet, and will cost a lot of money... so please dont worry your little heads about it and appreciate this deal for the scorcher that it is.
