Medion has been around for some time and is now owned by Lenovo which has helped bring some credibility to a smaller laptop maker. Not that Medion had lacked credibility since it did produce some solid devices but many consumers are reluctant to purchase technology from a company that is not well established and now being backed by the worlds largest laptop maker it is sure to see some positive effects. Below we are going to review the Medion ERAZER P6681 which is a 15.6 inch laptop model and below we will see what some of the biggest benefits and downsides.
Processor: Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SATA
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
– IF you still want decent performance without paying a bunch the Intel Core i5 processor is a great way to go. It isn’t a huge step down from the top of the line i7 but does come at a cheaper price
– Your storage needs will be well covered on this laptop due to the huge 1 TB SATA drive
– If you are into light gaming the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 will help deliver much better graphics than a typical onboard graphics card will
– For those that hate the new trend of removing the optical drive on new laptops the fact it is still intact here will be a bonus
– For a full sized laptop the 2.3 Kg weight is quite good and not overly difficult to take on the go
– Most laptops are coming out with either 2 or 3 USB ports, you will find 4 available on this model with 2 running on the faster 3.0 technology
– Battery life is below average with it only able to provide up to 4 hours on a single charge making it nearly impossible to get through a full day without needing a power source
– Lacks any of the newer features that are seen on some models like touchscreen or convertible design
If you are not familiar with Medion now might be a good time to give them a try, The Medion ERAZER P6681 seems like a solid everyday laptop and affordable for what you get.
