hey i think the price has increased to £349 now?

anyone got any alternatives?

i would definitely have bought this if i saw it in time!
anyone recommend a graphics card to go into this around £100 budget? thanks

medion only started selling this pc about 3 weeks ago and they already have aload that are refurbished?
Seems a bit odd?

I believe that a lot of 'refurbished' PCs are actually cancelled/returned orders that cannot technically be sold as new even though they may never have been used.

Can you whack a cheap graphics card in this?

Yes, how cheap?
Don't really know......up to 50 quid.

Crikey, that is cheap. Might as well stick with onboard or find a cheap pre-owned card.


I have heard that gt610s are better than integrated lol

What code ??
I believe Lenovo own Medion they also own IBM so should be O.K. being largest manufacturer of computers in China
My 2009 18.4" Medion Akoya P8610 has served me very well over the years, from 32bit Vista :p to 64bit Win 7,8,8.1 :D and Win 10/Anniversary Update. :D I'm using it now, typing this...:)

You are stuck 30 years in the past.
The reason I swore at you is because your stupidity frustrates me. 30 years my ass.
I love how you pick an insult and use it in favour for your own opinion but totally ignore anything else.
The reason you don't need an i7 for gaming is because it only gives you a couple fps over an i5 whereas a 1060 will give you 60%+ better gaming performance. If you call <£60 for 60%+ more performance a bad buy or "a lot more money for no benefit" you truly deserve all the insults you'll get.
Not to mention, you can get windows licences for £20.
Also forgot to mention that the "B-Ware" prebuilt here probably has a trash unbranded PSU also.
You also attempted to make the point that the 1060 will be outdated in a couple months. The build with the 1060 has a CPU that is a year younger than the i7 in OP and a graphics card which is 2 years younger.

I've been shoplifting for years, but I've never been caught, so what's the problem. I gave the busker outside the shop a couple of quid, so I'm covered.

Do people here still not understand what an OEM license is? You may as well set fire to your money as buy this.
If you click on the item from your link it even says the following:
Note: The following custom part link was user-provided. PCPartPicker cannot vouch for its validity or safety. If you follow this link, you are doing so at your own risk.
I've never had an issue in around 4 years. But if you're worried a Windows 8.1 license can be had from Amazon for £55. Or you could use a license from an existing machine you're about to retire.
I wouldn't personally say you're 'setting money on fire' that's a bit dramatic.
When you say
you could use a license from an existing machine you're about to retire
you're just proving my point. If this is an OEM license, and the vast majority are these days, the license is tied to the motherboard. As you are changing motherboard you are breaking the terms of the license and therefore you have no valid license.
What you're saying equates to
I've been shoplifting for years, but I've never been caught, so what's the problem. I gave the busker outside the shop a couple of quid, so I'm covered.
The shop is Microsoft, the busker is the seller you're handing £21.59 to. There is no relationship between the two. Hence, you may as well set fire to the money.

Looks as if the GPU in mine will be alot worse, spec says GeForce 705 2gb but I can only find a 1gb version... Dell may have got that one wrong. For £550 I'd say it's a fair deal if you don't want the hassle of building your own



Yes the gpu in yours is no better than basic integrated graphics. If your gaming you will need to replace it.


​Nah it won't be used for gaming, just a basic workstation with the task of running photo editing software at most. I was going to build one again but came to the conclusion I may as well spend £30 more and get one pre built with a far superior CPU. Don't suppose you know if there was a 2gb version of the 705?

I've just bought a refurbished desktop from the Dell outlet, similar spec to this but without the SSD but with 16gb RAM. I paid £370, call it £400 when I put a £30 120gb SSD in it.

I have the aforementioned version of this laptop, which I'm assuming is the same (other then extra ram, disk and pentium processor). Build is fine and the IPS screen excellent with great viewing angles of course :)
It's an IPS screen?

Ya ha :)
Oh, and I meant to add that the £35 Moto E that I ordered for my wife arrived today. Electronically speaking, she's now one happy lady!!
Okay, it looks like this laptop has now gone out of stock so I'll expire the deal. To anyone who bought the E4213, I sincerely hope you like it. If you don't do, remember you can return it, no questions asked, up to 14 days after purchase and if it conks out in the next two years, Medion will fix it for you. Thanks to all the people that contributed to this tread. It's now the second hottest deal of the day so my best HUKD deal so far!

looking for a gaming laptop for my son, would this handle the newer games?
No, currently the words gaming and laptop will require at a minimum of spending £600 for modern games at the lower end. This will manage older games at lower settings but next to nothing in terms of modern triple A titles.
If you require gaming at this sort of budget the only way you will achieve the performance necessary for modern games is a desktop.

Cheers for the great advice

No one commented on this having the iris graphics (it is the one used in macs...) that should be one of the main points of this machine...

For other deals:
Go to front page of hukd, select computers and look at first 5 pages, you will find 2 deals better significantly than this (both hps) one of which has expired by now.

Really good deals don't stay on for long, you need to be patient and it will come along.

This is too much money for what you get, especially from a company with questionable build quality in the past.

So sorry, cold from me.
(the i3 version seems a much better balanced machine tbh)
I've got the Akoya E4213 with full HD screen and it's great for what it is. Compared with my Toshiba Chromebook 2, the Medion has a cheaper feeling keyboard, but other than that feels OK. No worse than budget devices from other suppliers IMO.

it's definitely a++ and the manual states 45w on
finally got mine delivered today, they used xpd couriers who are nothing short of crap.

anyways the important bit, the TV. it looks great, has got freeview hd which looks fantastic on it. the smart features aren't the best which is probably why the roku was thrown in.

Xbox one on this TV looks crisp with no lag at all. sound is a bit "tinny" but playing around with the settings has improved it.

very happy with the TV for the cost now I've finally got it! would recommend to anyone on a budget
Thanks for your update jenko65, appreciate your feedback, do you know if it is indeed "a++ energy rating" as there is the wrong EU energy label on the website and I have rung twice and they have no clue. Does it have an on mode wattage consumption in the manual or energy label on the box? Thanks in advance.

My Akoya arrived yesterday and I'm very impressed!! Just a quick first impressions post as I'm a bit short of time at the moment. I'll compare it to my FHD Toshiba Chromebook 2 which is probably the closest device you will find with a 1080p screen of this size, price wise.
OK, so it looks beautiful - a sort of dark steel grey colour on the lid and keyboard, with a back bezel, edges and underside. The laptop is stylish with funky curves throughout :) Whereas the Toshiba is flat and oblong like, this thing is futuristically curvy and cool :D
The screen is gorgeous - it's got more of a matte finish than the glossy screen of the Toshiba. Windows loads quickly and doesn't seem the lag - the processor is clearly a step up on that of the Chromebook. That said, you can always hear a quiet whir of the fan underneath, whereas the Toshiba is silent.
The keys on the keyboard feel bouncy, which is actually OK. It's easy to type on, although does feel a little cheap. The touchpad is fine although it's got a single two ended button, like on the Chromebooks...urgh! At least it has a right click on the right hand side however.
There is no obvious access to the RAM socket(s?). I think you'd have to unscrew the entire back of the chassis, like with a Samsung ultrabook or Chromebook (the battery is internal).
The device is noticeably heavier than the Toshiba, but still light enough that it doesn't matter and is comfortable on the lap.
Definitely keeping hold of this laptop - like!
Ooh the fan has just gone off. I guess Windows 10 was installing updates...
Thanks for the review. Does the touchpad support multitouch? (Ie two finger scrolling)

Yep. I can scroll with two fingers and pinch to zoom etc. :)

One thing I've just noticed...there's no disk activity light!

Ooh the fan has just gone off. I guess Windows 10 was installing updates...

despite being an ebay company they have been trading since 2004! thats one plus side also if something does go faulty the end user would return things to the manufacturer! old school pc stuff classic rma. I'd go with the ebay seller or do self build or use ccl, ocuk, ebuyer but tbh this deal is dogs mess.
You can't expect any Ebay company to back up a warranty.
2.7 ghz is pretty slow clock speed these days also its using dd3l so its going to be a really budget motherboard, i know it gets said all the time but if your wanting to be a pc gamer you cant beat building your own

Yes it doesnt have 2TB storage but for another £40 or so it can be the same as this with a much better GPU
I did say with a KNOWN company. Does Gareth Walker (the ebay seller), count as that...? Will Gareth still be around in 12 months time to honour the warranty? Don't get me wrong, Gareth may be a nice lad, may deliver a good product but he's hardly a match for Medion in terms of a 'known company'. Ultimately you pays ya money, you makes ya choices.
EDIT: As to the lack of the HDD and Windows... The 2TB drive will take the cost of the deal you have linked to over the cost of this. Then there's the lack of operating system... you aren't seriously suggesting you'll get a legit Windows 10 key from Reddit surely...?!?! I'm ALL for a deal but come on!

Firstly Gareth (Aka FTS Gaming) is a reputable seller with 99.5% positive feedback over 524 sales in the past year and the 2 negative reviews are for not supplying a game code that the seller said they would and for late delivery. Really nothing to worry about.
As for the 2TB, i have stated that it will raise the cost as well as the Windows key but it is still a much better deal.
The key, while you may have concerns about legitimacy, works for me (bought 2 in past year) and nothing problematic has risen. The seller also promises the key will work and if it doesn't he wont have a problem replacing it for you as he most likely has an unlimited subscription to them

It is (was) not bad but that is a dated processor for that kind of money, we're on 6th gen Skylake now and that's 4th gen Haswell, looks like dumping old stock. At least the GPU is modern.

Who cares if its 4th gen. Clock for clock it's only around 10% slower than Skylake and the turbo on Haswell laptops are more aggressive so in reality the difference is ZILCH.http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i7/Intel-Core%20i7-4710MQ%20Mobile%20processor.htmlhttp://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i7/Intel-Core%20i7-6700HQ%20Mobile%20processor.html
I probably care if it's 4th gen when I'm spending best part of a grand and also for future resell. I didn't dispute it was a potent processor, I said 'dated' and I don't know many others who would choose an older CPU by choice unless buying used. But it is my opinion only.
Who wouldn't buy the older CPU if it performed exactly the same as the newer one (and in most cases cheaper). I certainly would because I am not ignorant nor do I buy products because of a name on a sticker.

Indeed, I have a very similarly specced (but 14") laptop, with a 6700HQ, but that cost me £400 more. 50% price increase for a newer and pretty much same performing cpu is something I was ok paying for, but others might not feel it worth £400.

This is a Gaming PC the same way I'm a Marathon Runner. I probably could run a Marathon, but it would be slow, sluggish, constantly stopping to catch my breath, I may even crash a couple of times along the way too. I'd get it done eventually, but it would be horrifying experience for both myself and any spectators.
In terms of the sum of its parts, this is a great deal. PC Part Picker puts me in the 700 ballpark, selecting a mid range 80+ Bronze PSU and a Fractal Case at about £60, as well as including the OS from a standard retailer, rather than going to a CD key place.

In terms of what they're selling it as, yes, its an unbalanced rig. The board and PSU are also complete unknowns, and likely not great. With the same money you could redistribute your parts and get a decent entry level gaming rig, which would be more capable. Realistically, this thing isn't for gaming, but it does make for a decent upgrade path.

When / Where was this deal £386?

About a month ago on an early bird special.i saw it as the deal had about 20 minutes to go so didn't bother to post it, but I was soooo tempted to buy one myself.


Wow, even as it is I think it's a great price - at £386 it would have been utterly amazing.

Hot. Good find.

​Does it work?

It's an MSDN key, when Microsoft catches up with them they'll disable and deactivate the account rendering it as useless; some people get weeks, others get months or years of use - but don't trick yourself into thinking this is 'legit' and honestly, you may as well just torrent the software outright.

P.S. by them I mean the seller, not the buyers.

anyone can buy
Thanks. Looks like it's OOS already though :(
Its a very good price I would have bought it but only just found mine on ebay 2 days ago.
Certainly better than buying office 365 & having to pay to renew it every year
That depends on your needs though doesn't it, Office 365 also comes with 1TB of online storage.

Off ebay from a private seller who accepted my best offer. They now have run out but there are others for circa 30 still on there. Just look at the sellers feedback to make sure they are genuine.


Have just checked eBay - seems too good to be true.

There are some reviews if you google. The loud constant fan noise mentioned in several reviews would put me off this model.
not bad for the price... but "multitasking" just kill me, not for something but the multitasking in windows is from win 95 (if remember good), so is like yelling laptop with CPU... :p:D

Absolutely. Ordered using the £10 off code for signing up to the newsletter. Just gonna use it for online poker, so should be just the job. Thanks OP.
I agree the GPU isn't going to get you much gaming, but this is still an excellent deal if you forget about the gaming element.
You'd be hard pressed to find a 17inch 1920x1080 laptop with an i5 and 8GB RAM for this price.
Is the wifi compatible with both 2.4 and 5 ghz bands?
Can see its £449 and thinking of getting one, but can't see from the page description where it says its a hybrid drive. Can anyone confirm that before I call them up. Tks.

Big money for a Medion laptop, you could buy a Macbook or Dell XPS13 at that price.
You clearly don't know anything about computer's so do everyone a favour!
mercutio98uk

4kg is still... kinda light tbh.

Don't be stupid. You've clearly never carried around a laptop with you during the day for any length of time. 4kg. 17". Huge power brick. Big laptop case. That's 6kg of unncessary weight you're lugging around from one place to the next, onto trains, off trains, into meetings, up and down stairs, escalators etc.

Blinding spec for the price. Heat!
It doesn't have an IPS panel, so hardly 'blinding spec'. 32gb RAM is also pretty redundant. They should have saved the money spent on RAM and provided a better panel instead.
My hardback Oxford English Dictionary is also thinner than this Medion!http://cdn1.mos.techradar.futurecdn.net//art/laptops/Medion/Erazer%20X7825/DSC07868-650-80.jpg
Agreed on the memory but for the money, you'll not find a better spec otherwise (now the 980m deal from medion also using a rebadged MSI is expired).
Not everyone cares for something 1.5cm thick with a relatively poor spec (or something thin with the same spec for about twice the price). This ticks plenty of boxes. I have an (aging) MSI GX660R that uses pretty much the same chassis. There's a wee bit of flex, sure, but it's otherwise survived about 5 years of service and is still going strong (3 drink spillages by the wife on it and shes all over the house with it so it's been lugged around a fair bit with slips and less than perfect handling. It's had a new battery as good battery management is rather an afterthought and an SSD upgrade but otherwise as we bought it).
4kg though and that's not including the huge power brick.
Given it's size and weight, for this price, I'd rather buy a desktop.

I'd consider this rather more portable than a desktop regardless of it's weight (within reason). As said, yeah, there's loads of places a thin+crap laptop or a full desktop are markedly preferable. You won't get this spec in something this portable for this sort of price.

4kg is still... kinda light tbh. Sure, everyone's used to ultrabooks now (which are actually a sub-section of laptops). If you're REALLY that "on the go" that you don't even have a table to stick it on and couldn't possibly have more than a (man) purse on you it's a little big but... come on.
