Dunno why cold good price, my last medion lasted twice as long as my Acer bag of crap. Some comments would be nice if cold

I added heat mate, though a Macbook user personally. My guess is the that because it has an i5, SSD and 1080p screen, the usual 'I'd be all over this if blah blah blah' brigade are stumped for an excuse not to buy.

cheers ezzer I think it's a great price for the spec closest I could find to this spec and screen size was. a HP at £750

hot for screen size and 1080p. uses Intel graphics. for anyone wanting to gane tesco has nvidia 950m for 479. i play xcom 2 on my 940m so that is a good deal

omg multitasking!

​lol it's just name they are German probably doesn't translate properly

Reasonably good spec for the price, an Intel i5-6267U CPU with Iris Graphics 550 is a good compromise with okay-isn gaming performance to low power draw ratio, though I imagine the 17" 1920x1080 panel probably isn't that frugal on battery life. How many cells does the battery have, I wonder. I mean, at least it doesn't have an i5 6200U with HD520 graphics. Both an SSD drive and a hard drive is welcome, the 2 year warranty, too, though I would be happier if John Lewis were selling it. It would be good to see some reviews but, on spec at least, have some heat, I can't find anything with that spec at that price, that comes with Iris Graphics 550 and a 1920x1080 17" panel.

Apparently a full 4-cell Li-Ion-battery, 4.5 hours, not too bad considering the1920x1080 17" panel and Iris 550 graphics.

Can everyone just please give the JL thing a rest around here? Medion is part of Lenovo - worth around $27 Billion - I think they'll have a spare 50 quid to fix your laptop if needs be.

I don't necessarily disagree with you there, my point is, though John Lewis don't score as badly on the trustpilot pie chart as Currys and the Medion's online store themselves doesn't do that great on trustpilot, either, if you live in a city the returns process with John Lewis involves me just popping up the road and my experiences with them have, over many years, been quick and hassle free. I should say, so far. Still seems like a pretty good value for the spec, either way.

6Gb seems an unusual amount of ram but looks good spec apart from that. Anyone know if it's easy to upgrade ram on this?

The i5-6267u scores about 25% faster than the i5-6200u a lot of laptops in this price range seem to have:

Although has higher power usage so guess this could also impact how long the battery lasts.

Going to hold out for a cheaper non-multi tasking version.

​sure

don't let anyone tell you 950m is not for gaming. they want you to spend loads of money on something crazy. all I know is xcom 2 struggled on my i3 intel hd graphics even with settings config manually edited by retro gamer hut it flies on my 940m. 950m is much better. can youtube videos and your game to see how perform. sure you can always spend more but I like to buy cheap as can buy today's technology tomorrow at half price

well I can report battery lasted just under 4 hours on full brightness using a VPN to watch Netflix Canada HD 2 films via headphones. Boot is about 10 seconds, haven't tried games as I have gaming rig for that. Screen is nice on HD movies good viewing angles. the only thing I would say is the keyboard feels a bit cheap but finish of surround around keyboard is brushed stainless. I have lost around 70 gig of my d drive as recovery partition.

​As you've got it can you tell me how easy I'd be able to upgrade the ram? Is there an easily accessible slot that's not in use, or would I have to remove and replace the existing 6?

Planning on using this for software development when working from home so this looks good apart from needing more RAM.

Original Poster

you will have to remove the 6 2 slots both used but I would say 1 is a 4 and 1 a 2.
