Doesn't look like this has been listed on here before...not sure if that's meant to be a sign or not! :-/

Found a review on here - might be setting myself up for the firing squad but o'well! :-P

notebookcheck.net/Rev…tml

Can be bought directly from Medion website or via their Amazon shop - amazon.co.uk/MED…1-6. Same price either way.

I think this is a good price for an Intel i7 Sandy Bridge core with a BluRay drive and screen resolution of 1920x1080 but feel free to correct me if I wrong however I'd appreciate if you could do it nicely? :-P

Thanks all,

Andy B.

If only I could afford this. damn.
Seems decent enough for that spec with a 1920x1080 screen.
Doesn't get a whole lot more powerful than this in the non-specialist market.
hotukdeals.com/dea…716 got that one, weaker cpu but great gpu, shame it's not gtx 460 or 560
I'm still suprised by the BluRay drive, x2 USB3.0s, Bluetooth and finger print scanner. Aren't these normally luxuries with other laptops up around the £1,000 mark??
GB credit crunch

Drat this laptop is not on Sainsburys' website...!! Could have used a discount code if it was.
apparently its DDR2 ram? let down.

Where did you find that because the review website says the following?

4096 MB, 2x 2048 MB DDR3-RAM (1333 MHz)

Just noticed that it's Amazon advertising it as DDR2 RAM. Not convinced they've got it right however I'll do a bit of digging and see what I find.
Okay mate thanks

Ok, I know hardly any German however Amazon's equivalent website also has the memory down as DDR2 however if you go further down and read (or pick out parts of the text in my case) the main text then it definitely says DDR3 - text below;

Hinzu kommen 4 GB DDR3 Arbeitsspeicher für schnellen und sicheren … Hinzu kommen 4 GB DDR3 Arbeitsspeicher für schnellen und sicheren Datenzugriff



Different seller but what's the chances they swapped out the DDR2 memory for DDR3 on a non-premium brand which only seems to sell on Amazon, Sainsburys and their own site?
realblender

Sandybridge and ddr2 - not sure thats possible



Yup, you're right. I checked Wikipedia and i7 can only handle DDR3.

Thanks guys.
seems nice
another one with 'solid touch' keyboard too - anyone know if these are improved rigid keyboards or just marketing spiel?
Fantastic specs for this price! Don't doubt the power of the 555M, it is actually pretty capable. Some Novatech laptops are actually just re-badged Medions.
Thinking about cancelling my Dell order (for the XPS deal) and ordering this instead. It has the bonus of the full HD screen and blu-ray drive.

Things are never simple on this site:)
V.Good price, a similar Dell setup on an XPS would be around £1,100 and you can't get the better nVidia GT 555m GPU.

I just bought a similar spec machine from the Dell Outlet refurb store for £600 but these upgrades make this Medion better value I think

Have some heat...

Depends how good that screen an the construction is, the XPS17 1080p 3D screen is the best 17 incher on the market, at least last time I checked.

I have L702x, very good machine.

I paid about this from the outlet for mine, but wasn't bothered about bluray.

You do pay more for the dell, but the question is do you get more for your money?

Given heat as it's a good price.
The long description says just 1024mb RAM? Odd...

I'm struggling to find an i7 XPS 502x on the Del outlet site at the moment... especially a 1080p one, they disappear so quickly... Dell outlet doesn't seem to have any routine anymore... really struggling to find what I want! Contemplating this... but Medion aren't a great brand are they?
can anyone confirm if this only has 2 memory slots?
Original link has changed.

Mods can you change link to medion.com/gb/…_17
Its just a pity that their web site is an absolute load of crap - the so called auto correction system when you enter a delivery address simply deletes address lines 1 and 2. It is also picky with the post code - i.e. if do not put a space in the postal code it simply says its an invalid post code. It doesn't take a genius to put a space in automatically.

Anyway, I just give up after trying 2 alternative addresses for the delivery - it just blanked out the lines. Makes you wonder about the quality of the product if they can't get a simple order form working correctly.

Hot deal, bloody cold for the web site though (though i voted on the laptop so lucky them).
Seems like a very good deal, heat added. It's a shame they don't make a 17 incher with the same specs as I'd definately buy it.
