'drivers tend to be buggy on medions from my experiance'...never had this problem or heard of this problem. Medions tend to be great value and well built.

My folks also have a medion laptop and again, no problems. My query isnt really about medion reliabilty, more the about the spec for the money.

knowyour rights!Do you have any details on the HP in Staples?

Its not on the web site but its a full media laptop with remote, I beleive it's £699, what ever PC World are selling a poorer specified version for £200 more!
It lacks very little, but they are flying out of the shops!

Concerning Medions, I admit I have had limited experiance of medions, they are normally fantastic value, but the couple I've come across were buggy. That does not mean they are not normally good.
