  • OS: Windows 10 Home
  • Memory size: 4GB
  • SSD Capacity: 256GB
  • Screen size: 33,8 cm (13,3")
  • Resolution: 1920x1080 pixel

Prices are going up and there's not much around under £500 for FHD display, 256GB SSD. This has only 4GB RAM (no obvious service hatch either); in my opinion 4GB is ok for light office use and browsing with not too many tabs open (Chrome I find is best at memory usage.)

Note that the warranty is only 12 Months, unusually for Medion.

HUKD's Medion UK links are still ending up at Medion's German site so use Google's web cache of the UK laptop here
Then click on current page to get to the actual Medion UK page (current stock level is low).

This is the standard price. Not actually deal. Btw you can change M.2 SSD but RAM isn’t. Excellent display & very good build quality. However if anyone buy this please make sure to update the bios. Otherwise cooling fan only have two settings. Either Jet engine mode or off...

Also it got very sensitive touch pad which is like a sponge..

Thanks, but I'll wait until the warranty has expired before I take all the screws out. I haven't got a very good record of being able to put things together again.

Not upgradeable.

***Musicrab*** your choice by all means, what I do is as each screw is removed lay it near by to create the shape of the laptop with all of the screws

Maybe the ram lives under the keyboard as is the case on some laptops?

It's soldered, on the other side of the board.

Crucial's website doesn't list any upgrade options, and due to the thickness of this, there wouldn't be sufficient room on the other side of the keyboard.

The ribbon cable on has the fan and the CMOS battery under it.

ah good to know, odd there's no upgrade for memory but every penny saved is what the manufacturer is all about!

This review suggests they tested it with 2 sticks of ram in dual channel mode but there's no other mention of whether this is possible or whether it's an error

Sadly, a lot of laptops are going that way now

I'm very surprised, but bow to the superior knowledge of others. The review kindly provided by spannerzoneclearly says an 8gb model dose exist. The new MSI laptop that I have here, is sold with a tight ass 8GB for similar money, but the method I described earlier get you in side. Has any body with the Medion Laptop here tried using an SD card to facilitate ready boost?

I have i5 version which comes with 8gb ram. Ready boost is dead technology. Ssd is much much faster than sd cards .

I would pay a bit more personally for 8GB; 4GB is just too much of a limiting factor unless you are looking at a smaller form factor.

***Bigspin*** ready boost is far from burred. It would be ***greatly*** appreciated if some one with a Medion AKOYA S3409 and an SD card kicking about might spare 10 minutes of their precious time to give ready boost a quick try and comment on the difference/s. Sd cards are cheap things, less tan 30 min of Legal min. Enlighten us all, an average priced SSD of sufficient capacity to support an O.S and a few apps would cost how much?
