I know the Medion is not a very well known brand but all the reviews ive seen say its really good where as the Toshiba, some people have said its too slow and ive seen quite a few negative reviews. Both cost the same £299 which would be a better buy thanks in advance.

For it's Medion everytime. Used them for years and never had any real probs. They are well built machines and usually with better than above specs for a reasonable price.
