it's okay. hot..useful. but I'd expect to.pay this sort of price now for a basic entry level 15" laptop.

Good price but *extremely* slow cpu. Its going to struggle with any active AV.

I used to have a Medion laptop. I will NEVER EVER buy one again. Quality is absolutely appalling. Keyboard terrible, screen terrible, track pad terrible. Build quality horrific. Bit by bit the machine starting breaking apart literally - screen hinges, certain keys on the keyboard stopped working, screen started flickering etc.

ICE COLD (unless you plan to dispose of your laptop after 1.5 years).

Had one too, bad.

Dell selling their basic laptop for £169

Nice find

It's a Celeron. Avoid at all costs.

Medion laptops were great when Aldi partially owned them and retailed them as they then came with a free three year warranty. My lads packed up after two years and when Medion couldn't get a replacement motherboard for it the full purchase price was refunded. Made for cheap computing!

I got the little 10 inch touchscreen jobbie from Asda a while back. £150 including a licence for Office. It's slow-ish, yes, but a cracking little thing for the money. Build quality is good.

I guess it will depend on the model, but strangely my experience with this one has made me warmer to the Medion brand, not colder.

I learnt this the hard way....

In terms of raw specs is a capable enough machine for most tasks apart from new games. The cpu isn't a beast but has enough grunt to run most apps and web pages smoothly. The integrated graphics will decode HD video so you'll be able to watch massive blu ray rips without any CPU usage because the graphics chip will be doing the work. It will do the same with 1080p youtube videos too.

The graphics processor will also be able to accelerate programs such as photoshop, premiere, sony vegas, capture one and many others using opencl technology. Not only does this take the load away from the cpu in certain situations but it can actually do the job much much faster. The CPU might not be a beast but there are a lot of situations where the GPU can take some of the strain which leaves it free to do other things. Even the web browsers are using using hardware acceleration these days to draw web pages.

I think it doesn't have a webcam , does it ?

Matt display and at this price,
You normally pay the price of the laptop to upgrade to a Matt display

Good deal if you need a basic laptop however the resolution of display is really poor.

The funniest thing about this deal and those who voted it "hot" is that the Windows licence alone costs the OEM anything from $50-$80. tomshardware.com/new…tml

Take that out of the £175 price for this laptop, and what quality do you think the rest of the components - screen, motherboard, keyboard, HDD etc - are going to be?? Likely to be cheapest possible junk that they can lay their hands on with the cheapest possible build and assembly process.....this isn't going to be a well made machine.
