Anyone considering to buy one, also have a look at the higher spec model on the Medion website.

For the extra £56.95 you get double the ram (4GB total) and a 1TB "hybrid" hard drive.
A hybrid hard drive is a small cache SSD married to a conventional hard drive. The idea is to give you both large storage capacity and super fast read speeds in Windows.

honestly I wouldn't touch one with a barge pole. they may be cheap but they are certainly not good value in my book!

Complete and utter bargain and with Asda's return policy you can always take it back if you don't like it after the first few days.

why?

I have a lot of them in for repair with broken screen hinges and loose screws and the build quality is awful. Getting any parts is a nightmare too. Currently got two in the workshop waiting for parts

Looking for a small, light, portable device to take to the lab with me so I can type up documents and search for articles and this seems to tick all the boxes. The ethernet port is a bonus too as we can apparently only connect to the network using a cable. Had considered holding off for the likes of the Dell Venue 11 Pro convertable tablet in November, but the price on this thing is hard to beat for what I need it for. Only thing is, do I pay the extra 50 quid to get the extra ram and HDD? Hmm.

I got a Surface Pro for this reason. It cost a lot more than something like this, but the build quality is excellent and I needed something with enough power to run 3DS Max and photoshop. The Wacom stylus is great for work too.

Good deal, IMO. Windows 8 and Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 (full version) alone are worth around £70.

I have a 2003 Medion desktop and a 2007 Medion laptop. Both work perfectly. I have found Medion to be very reliable and very high quality, unlike HP (my mum's laptop was in for repair several times and then broke just after the warranty had expired) and Acer (the power plug-in point came off the motherboard just after the warranty had expired).

If you're looking for a tablet which can play the PC version of Minecraft you'll probably need one with an i5 - possibly an i3 might be able to cope. Avoid Pentium, Celeron, Atom, ARM, and Tegra processor tablets as these will either not run full Windows, or will be extremely slow. Tablets such as the Acer P3, Acer W700 and Surface Pro will be able to cope - however, these can be expensive, so keep an eye out for refurbished or open-box models as these are considerably cheaper.

Seems like a good deal - touch screen laptop with Radeon graphics and MS Office for £250? Bargain - especially when compared with similar spec Windows 8 tablets - and you get the luxury of an actual keyboard!

worth noticing, on the medion web site it has a one star review only

How can 'about £300' be £150 or 60% more than £249? Or are you referring to the first-mentioned Asus S200e? oO

Hi Alex im looking for a laptop what makes would you recommend?

Not sure it needs stating but the CPU/GPU in these is designed to draw about 4W compared to the 16W of an E-350, so battery life is potentially longer (4.5 hours... is really weird) but actual processing power is far worse. If you're expecting to be able to play games with this, stop, that GPU apparently comes in below the Intel integrated graphics you'd find in even the cheapest of modern netbooks. If you're looking for CPU power then even a laptop from 2007 could beat it.

I'm not actually sure what the intended market is, perhaps people who can't afford an Asus Transformer Book T100, but want some extra portability that you wouldn't find in used laptops from 2007. Weird product.

Honestly it depends, but my avoid list would be Medion, Acer and Dell. I like Asus at the moment and get very few in for repair. HP / HP Compaq are nice as well
