Silly question but I just want to make sure..is the OS installed on the SSD?
Yes. It is installed on the SSD. My HDD was not initialised and was not visible at first, but once you go in the disk management utility it show up and you can initialise and format.

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.

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.
shanara101
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.

​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.

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.

It's a good spec, my problem is what happens if it goes wrong! I bought my grandson a Medion laptop for Christmas, he only used it for a few days and the SSD packed up. because I ordered it on 30th November they insisted it was too long ago to be replaced or refunded and insisted it had to go back to Germany to be assessed, where it still is!

I find it difficult to contact Medion they suggest emailing is best but when you try they present you with an online form to fill in endless details but when I did all I got was an email saying they don't deal with emails but to use their online form!

Eventually they agreed to collect it for return, we stayed in all day and they failed to turn up, when I complained they were quite unconcerned and asked if I would like them to arrange another collection!

I tried rejecting the laptop and asked for a new one or a refund mentioning the sales of goods and new consumer rights act but again was refused. If it does not get rectified soon I am sure I can demand a section 75 refund from my Credit card company.

I have no complaints about the quality of Medion products just their after sales service.

That last sentence you used was unnecessary. You also must be young, as you've turned into personal defence of yourself, perhaps because of your overly emotive stance on Lenovo, which comes out in this post also.
You do realise you have to actually join this articles hotspot? As I say, its a vector for attack, not malware itself.
I also wouldn't want it on my machine, but that doesn't stop the Lenovo hate being a bit childish. Whether their intentions were honourable, their acts stupid from a technical perspective doesn't take away that large companies do daft things, but writing them off for something like this (when they make good hardware) seems a bit silly to me.

I didn't say you should write them off, but rather implied that they were undeserving of the description "quality" - in a similar way that OCZ was undeserving. There are plenty of apologists for corporate negligence, but you shall not find me in that crowd.

As for the severity of the threat, I am sorry you do not consider it serious, but I can assure you that man-in-the-middle attacks are not frivolous. SSL exists because your data is being transmitted over an untrusted network. Would you send your sensitive data in plain text because you trust everyone between you and your destination not to peek?

Not really. Look at the headlines "Lenovo Infect"...
It was not malware. It was a preloaded adware, that "could" have been a vector for a cert injection attack.
None proven to exist. As I say, storm in a tea cup. Should OEMs do it? Probably not, as I also stated I don't like preloads myself. But to call it malware was wrong, an infection, wrong. Typical hyperbole from news outlets.
Lenovo perhaps didn't take it seriously enough, but to be fair to them, there was (and still isn't) actual proof it was being used for nefarious purposes - even though it might have been eventually. I was just countering the Lenovo hate, which was overblown - which the Internet has a tendency to do.
Perhaps some of that Lenovo insouciance rubbed off on you. This exploit is not some theoretical work like Superstring theory, rather it is trivial to implement a working example. Here are simple instructions on how to create a compromised wifi hotspot that intercepts and decrypts all of the victim's https data. Pwned idd.
But if you wish to rest secure because nobody has been caught using the MitM exploit, be my guest.

Looks like a decent desktop for the price. Two memory slots and only one used, so easy to upgrade to 8GB. Or not a bad platform to stick in a GTX970/290X, new power supply and 16GB memory and get play…

mine went through ok. CC charged. £219.00. 4 cell battery will not last very long. usually batteries are 6 cell. Not something I was bothered about. shame the deals gone.

Medion is a German brand and is owned by Lenovo https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medion
Who also have links with Vestel for manufacture of their tv'shttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vestel
I never said they didn't :/ I was simply saying who Medion are for those that didn't know. They are owned by Lenovo, which to me is a reputable brand. All brands, even LG, Samsung, Sony etc had to start somewhere! :)

I never said they wasn't. I have a Lenovo Miix3. Quality bit of kit. My point is that any company can approach Vestel and get them to provide a tv with any name on it. Pick a tv and choose a name. Panasonic chose Panasonic for the 300B and 400B. Whilst Medion are known for their computer products I doubt very much they manufacture their own tv. It is just too costly to set up and far easier and cheaper to outsource the product, i.e buy from vestel.

The problem with Vestel is they are known for making cheap products using cheap parts for the budget end of the market. These are the ones you see in your supermarkets. The brands you mention, Samsung, LG, Sony etc have made their name by providing quality goods over a period of time giving them brand status. The only other way of achieving brand status is to invent something new that many people want. LG & Samsung were early pioneers of the LCD screen for tv's along with other companies yes, but Samsung & LG have conquered the market providing products at budget, mid-range and high end of the markets in tv production. Some models not so perfect but their name now sells their product. Sony don't appear to bother with the budget range and Panasonic now get Vestel to provide a budget range tv. Have a look at the 300b model in Currys it is awful. Perhaps one day Vestel will be the market leader but it will only happen over a period of time and if they can prove they can provide quality products that stand the test of time and appeal to all markets or they come up with something different that is hugely marketable. James Dyson did it with his DC01 vacuum cleaner. Apple did it with their ipod. Apple were about broke before that and hardly anyone over here would buy a mac computer. Now we have the iphone, Ipad, etc etc but if it hadn't started with the ipod the iphone and ipad may never have happened. And they make an amazing computer. I know, I have one and apple don't even manufacture themselves so it proves you can provide a quality product made by someone else.

Medion however have been around for some time but again they point their products at a certain market, usually through supermarkets and similar budget outlets. Personally it is a brand I wouldn't buy unlike Lenovo who have come up from being just another chinese based company to fastly becoming a brand that people will buy as they appeal to budget, mid-range and upper markets. My dad has a cheap lenovo PC also. It is very good for the money he paid. We also have one of their tabs. Not perfect but not bad either.

Summing up I wouldn't waste my money on any budget tv at this size. I only did it once and it failed after 18 months. It was called a Pentus. It was £450.00 from Currys for a 32". It had a Samsung panel it (allegedly). I said I would never buy a cheap non-branded tv again at any price. My next purchase was LG, lasted 8 years and still working when I sold it. Another LG at 5 years old and still working, a Samsung 22" bought in 2011 and still fine. There is a pattern here and I am sticking by it although before the Pentus failed I bought a Bush 32" LCD. It must be 10 years old now and it still works!!

A 50" tv will usually go in the living room where prime viewing is watched. For me £329.99 would be wasted in comparison to putting that money on an LG, Samsung. Sony are more expensive but in today's market of electronics you really do get what you pay and even though there is no guarantee who's panel may be in your Samsung, Sony or LG, you can rest in the knowledge that the rest of the tv is made in one of their factories where hopefully years of research and development will prove it to be reliable.

According to Wikipedia Medion is made by Vestel in Turkey along with Bush, Technika, Hitachi, Toshiba, JVC and quite a few other know names from years ago.

Cold from me as this is £300.00 you could put against a branded tv. For not much more you can get a 48" Samsung smart tv which has ALL of the players from Richer Sounds and get a 6 year warranty. I know where my money would be going tight budget or not.

The machine I just bought would have cost me £440 to build myself so at just £283 I would have £157.00 in upgrades or tweaks to make this perfect, and of course any parts that are surplus to requirements in the original build are of course saleable ;)
How did you get that system for £283?
Same PC is back on at £286 but without operating system (still a good buy as this would cost over £360 to build) ......

Cheapest I could get a system to come out on PC Part Picker using the cheapest options every time was £400.

Back in the day , building your own system would see you financially rewarded for your efforts. However this is no longer the case as prebuilt systems are often priced well below the cost of the individual parts.

The tricky bit now is choosing the right system that is closest to your needs or indeed if you are lucky enough to get one that suits your needs perfectly. There are many setups that will enable future upgrades or simple tweaks that could still offer better value even after these upgrades are added.

1600 x 900 used to be the standard screen resolution for 17" laptops many years ago and is certainly not Full HD. My ancient Dell laptop that is at least a decade old now has 1600x900. Full HD is 1920x1080 and I believe this is now the minimum spec for a 17" laptop with the higher spec ones coming with 3K or 4K resolutions.

You're judging a £349 laptop based on the fact it hasn't got a 4K screen?
Well damn it, it hasn't got an i7, 512GB SSD or fantastic dedicated graphics either, all 17 inch laptops should come with that too right?!?!?!?!?! ...
