Looks like a deal Cat! Just the right timing for the students and maybe better delivery timing than Dell atm:w00t:
[mod]#3
Thanks Mike, as you say, ideal for students :)

Wouldnt touch a Medion ever again with a barge pole.

And may not be as ideal as people think.

Low-spec, and it has to run Vista with 512Mb RAM and no Graphics card.
Vista needs 1024Mb and its still dodgy with compatability, which will be the biggest stumbling block.
Uni courses arent known for being up-to-date, and if they need specific software they could be knackered with Vista.
[mod]#5
Its Vista basic which will run with 512meg ram, you could of course up the ram if you needed to quite cheaply if it has just 1 sodimm fitted.
#6
hay mike t between this and the asda lappy for £275 witch do you think is the better value
[mod]#7
Flip a coin really but the Asda one has it on price and better CPU.

It'l run at basic specs, but imo you should never run an Operating System at minimum specs.
Knackers you when it comes to running other applications.

And the parts in Medions are cheap as hell, so its whatever they can get cheapest.
Means they often break, and their "Customer Care" is a farce as many people find out.
Wouldnt want to be fitting more RAM to a laptop, especially a Medion, the thing would fall apart if it saw a screwdriver.
#9
As with most things sometimes you get a good one and sometimes you dont.

I have no problems with Medion my laptop is a MD96400 and my phone a MDSP150 both work great and never had a problem.

I lasted vista premium on a 512 without lagging.

I've got a medion pc and would buy with medion again without hesitation.

You are just plain ANTI MEDION, I am on my second Medion Computer, never had a problem with either, because you may have had a bad experience, it doesn't follow that everyone will.

All makes have problems from time to time.
#12
Whats the point of Vista Premium on 512Mb when Vista uses up most all the RAM and basically makes it useless for running applications on it.

Whats wrong with being anti-Medion, they treat their customers like ****.
Most their recent PC's have design/ manufacturing faults, and of the recent ones this year, basically everyone has had bad experiences.
Sit on a Premium rate phone line to them and their 1 Engineer they employ in each region, might get to you this month. And if your extra lucky, the engineer might know how to fix it without you telling him how, in simple crayon diagrams.
#13
Yes I will agree life is a bit slow with only 512mb with vista. My girlfriends lenovo only had 512mb and I put an extra 1024mb in which makes it much better.

I'll be sad to see the day when I have to let XP go and move on.

As for medion I have only delt with them online by email and they replied in less than 24 hours.

There will always be some none happy customers, thats bussiness.

How many people said they wont deal with Dell or ebuyer after though's mispricings. Bet most will.
#14
Yuk. I'd rather spend another £75 and get a decent laptop.
#15
Only £40 more and a much better laptop.

This doesn't have Vista Premium.

Have you been in contact with all buyers of recent Medions to verify your comments?

You have obviously had a bad experience and you are attempting to condemn every Medion Computer, well sorry, I am on my second Medion, never had a problem with either.

I would buy again.:)
#17
Build your own, as this way you know exactly what is in your PC and have a better chance of fixing any problems and also learn a little more about computers.

My PC was so much better at the time I built it than any other similarly priced high street shop PC anyway :) And mine has quality branded components rather than whatever is the cheapest price on the day.

My 2p :)

Edit:Why swear? HUKD is a family read forum so please dont swear in your posts.

You built your own Laptop, wow that is a first.:roll:
#19
ops forgot this was about laptops! If so inclined you could still build your own laptop.

Surely a lot of people here buying laptops don't actually need the functionality of being able to use it on the move so a PC makes better sense. More spec for less money

Read the whole thread, i was replying to the guy that said 512Mb is fine even for Premium.

I have owned 2, and kick about on the support forums.
First one was fine, then the 2nd one was the antichrist.
When i searched for info on it, found out most everyone had the same problems, and this was a PC 3 years ago.
Then when that was sorted, ive been through Motherboards/ Graphics cards, you name it, often several of the same part.

Their February model, sold in Aldi in batches of 5/6 per store, has had the Engineers quoting 250 faulty motherboards for repair.
This doesnt count people that just took it back to the shop.

In Scotland at least, they have 1 Engineer, and they only work for them on 1 day of the week.
If they cant fit you in that day, or you cant make that day, or they bring the wrong part, they break it when they come out, or they are on holiday/sick etc etc, it can drag on for weeks/months.

And remember, Laptops are Return to Base Warranty, so you never know when it will turn up back at home.

Changed your tune now !!! it is now " most everyone " not just " everyone " and of course we all know very well that only those that have problems will seek support from support forums, so your evidence is based on internet searches, not reality.

As I have said before, I am on my second Medion Computer, neither of them have had any problems whatsoever, both are in daily use, the oldest one is around 6 years old now.

I speak as I find.

Ok lads we all have our own view on the subject.

But are we all agreed this is not that great a deal? (the laptop for the money)

No, I think it represents good value for money, and it is available without an unknown waiting list like the Dell's etc.;-)

Whoa! Dont stop this guy building a laptop, just let us know how. :giggle:
Whilst I don't own this Laptop, I have yet to have one returned instore. I know this dosn't mean a lot,but believe me,there are worst buy's out there! Use the warranty.

Same difference, the people that never had the same problems had other problems, the thing was plagued.
Was a P4 Prescott 3.4Ghz in a mATX case with no airflow and no cooling.
Most people got their fans replaced, the rest tended to just overheat and die.
Cheaply made custom parts meant if one part didnt fail, another one was, and so forth.

Its not internet searches its the actual forums.
They are unofficial since Medion dont actually give a toss about their customers, but their callcentre likes sending people to the forums when they cant be bothered.
You cant dismiss forums, they do give valuable information on the state of companies customer care.

I mean 250 replaced motherboards, is about 50 Aldi shops full stocks needing an engineer visit, and this isnt counting people that just took it back for a refund.
Thats an indicator of a serious problem, not just one or two.

And besides, it's not a great deal, theres better for slightly more money.
Students might be poor and not able to afford much, but buying cheap at the start of a course is just wrong since it often needs to last a 4 year course.
Most Uni work will be XP based (if they have even advanced that far) and some University required software will likely not work on Vista yet.
#31
You obviously have a personal vendetta against Medion Computers, all I can say, hand on heart, is both of mine have performed flawlessly.

Obviously only people that have problems seek out a support forum, that discounts the overwhelming majority that have no problems.

You have had a bad experience, you need to get over it.

I still say this Laptop represents good value for money, and it is available " off the shelf ".
#32
Its not personal if, as i have shown, i am far from the only person to have trouble with them.

You cant discount forums because "only people with problems go there".
Its there you find out that the overwhelming majority of users do have problems.
Hundreds of repairs on a recent model, and advice to personally replace heatsink fans on my model since Medion original/ replacements were all built with design faults.

Design faults as these are major and effect all users, not just "a couple that have bad experiences" and seek out a forum.

Well done to you getting hte ones without faults, the one we had 5/6 years ago was fine, but anything built in the last 3 years by them is like a game of roullette when it comes to reliability.

How can you possibly make such a statement? How do you know that " the overwhelming majority of users do have problems ". Have you carried out a statistical analysis of every Medion Computer sold?

My most recent computer is 2 years old, never any problem.

I'm afraid your continued attempt to decry all Medion Computers does appear to be a vendetta to me.

I would happily buy another, without hesitation.

All makes of computers have a limited number of failures, like anything else.

Statements from the Engineers ;-)
You know, since they have to go fix them all, want to call them liars as well ?

If you have never had a problem, whoop de doo. You cant comment on their god awful service either then since you never used it.

Limited failures? you obviously havent been reading.

You have obviously spoken to all Medion engineers then?

Get real, you have an axe to grind, you need to find something more productive to do, than trawling the net carrying out your personal vendetta against a company that supplies excellent value computers.

If your comments were true, how come Aldi almost always sell out of their computers before midday on the day of sale.?
:roll:
#36
Considering they dont employ very many (around the dozen mark for the whole UK) you dont have to talk to them all.
Each of them cover a big enough area to get a decent idea.
If 1 engineer says he has 250 similar repairs straight after release, its a big hint they have a problem.

They only send about 5-10 PC's to each shop, so you dont need many people for them to sell out.

I dont get why you are defending them so much, they arent even good value anymore.

Competitors/ Internet retailing overtook them a couple years ago.
With their Desktops you can generally do a self build for around the same price, with vastly superior components, and often with a vastly superior warranty.
#37
Don't forget this one, same spec (maybe better build?) and cheaper, as low as £261 delivered if quidco works, £269 if it doesn't.

Your opinion of course, I disagree, you obviously have an axe to grind, I am a very satisfied Medion / Aldi customer, you carry on and build your super value bag of bits, I will continue to buy Medion Computers.

Sorted.
#39
Um as Applesink says, theres a £39 cheaper Laptop available with similar Specs (better processor).
Whats your idea of good value?

You are only satisfied because nothings broken yet.
See how much you would love them if anything does go wrong.

Another bump for the Medion, I am sure you are only helping their sales by continually bumping this thread.

Price/Specification/Warranty/Software/Reputation.

I will cross that bridge if I ever come to it, still it is nice to know that I have a 3 year warranty.:p

Carry on with your personal vendetta.:roll:
