I wouldn’t recommend buying a gaming machine that doesn’t have a solid state hard drive.

medion has 2 M2 slots for ssds 1 sata 1 pcie and 2 sata bays for standard drives

i picked up a 275gb m2 for £52 from amazon so to upgrade could be cheap

Where do you get this from ? I had one of these 3 months ago, but had to return it, as like many Erazers, it over heated due to poor ventilation. For normal use they are fine, but this is sold as a 'gaming' machine and running sniper elite 4 caused it to over heat and shut down after 10 minutes gaming. There were no M2 slots. Maybe they have upgraded them in the last 3 months though. Still can't find anywhere that states they are now fitted with an M2 slot

The ram provided was an unmatched pair, whereas i would expect matched ram in a gaming machine and was a cheap non-generic brand.

I ran a score of benchmarks and the results were dreadful under stress, although under standard processing they were fine. Again, it's sold as a gaming machine and as such the tests were a fail.

I am typing this on an Asus ROG that cost £150 more at the time but its benchmark is double that of the Erazer.

I WAS a Medion fan, but they haven't kept pace with modern gaming and I wouldn't say they look like catching up any time soon.
Customer service was awful, with little or no English each time and I ended up returning it with threat of claiming on my credit card as they said, it wasn't faulty and that my games were too "modern". Sniper Elite 4 !! God help it if I had installed Ghost warrior 3
Looking for info on this now having an M2, tech radar review shows no sign of one

x7853 was a top machine that was rebranded. That's the thing with Medion. X range is rebrand, P range is for retail specials. Rebrands can be great as they can be top end models under a brand we havent heard of in the west of europe and they sell them under the medion badge at a large discount so that they get a trusted status with the public. I saw this P7651 as a great price for its spec (paid £1000 with a £50 cashback) and figured it was what I could afford, but it isn't a gaming machine really, although it will run microsoft solitaire okay . ended up spending £1350 with a £250 cashback to get the ROG

i see where your coming from and yes there rebrand clevo, medion are a German company.

i have heard alot of complains from various posts on here so i do have my doubts about them.

i know when i did a benchmark it was near 4000 but that was with gsync on and it told me to turn it off.

anyway moving on

You obviously know nothing about computers. The mechanical drive will make it significantly slower booting and opening applications. The HDD will be the biggest bottleneck in general performance for this machine, arguably making it the most important thing. Luckily, an SSD is an easy and relatively cheap upgrade.

couldn't agree more i have an acer gaming machine and its super slow to boot but it was used for everything so is loaded with things for work and play even disabling boot progs didnt help. it wasnt worth upgrading due to age and low specs built 2015. sata ssds can be had for around 30-60£ size depending.

There will be no bottleneck in performance if you dont have one your talking nonsense.

A ssd is nothing more than a option and yes it doesn't take rocket science to no having one would speed general use up but its in no ways necessary.

It is necessary. My i7 7700hq felt like an i3 with just a HDD.

Needs at least GTX1060 as well IMO for ' high-end gaming' label.

I do agree with you. Seeing all these companies listed the one with r530 and integrated gpu as gaming machine(ebay) make me died inside a little bit. This is at most mid tier or low tier which is not bad considering the price. How I wish 1060 will be around this price or 850 quid at most. I will gladly buy one.

There was something wrong with my system. It didn't have an SSD.
