Medion decided to create some competition with really impressive graphics, large display and adequate HDD space for one of the most popular and well-known notebook like the HP Pavilion. Let’s check it out then.
- CPU – Intel Core i5 Dual Core (7th gen), 2.5GHz
- GPU – 4 GB DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M
- Memory – 8 GB
- Screen – 17.3-inch FHD+ IPS (1,920 x 1,080)
- Storage -1 TB HDD
- OS – Windows 10 Home edition 64-bit
- Performance – It’s powered by an Intel Core i5 U series dual-core processor, 8 GB of RAM along with 1 TB of standard HDD. It houses enough power to handle your everyday surfing, word processing, and media consumption tasks pretty easily despite its small stature. And by any chance, if you are one of the game fanatics this will be a little disappointing for you as its coming with an older 950 mobile series GPU from NVIDIA which will allow you to run some medium image processing application along with other word processing software along with running some full HD videos. Although gaming on this machine is not really recommended.
- Design – For a 17’3-inch notebook it looks very standard. The rubberized plastic chassis won’t feel very premium but it will protect your laptop from sudden drop and knocks. In spite of the huge screen, it’s not that much bulky, Medion kept this lady under 2.8cm (1.10 inches).
- Display – The stunning 17.3-inch FHD+ display is one of the biggest USPs of this laptop. The panel brightness is excellent and on this laptop, you can play any full HD video comfortably and the contrast ratio is also really impressive. There barely can be any complaints against the display.
- Keyboard – The keys are generously spaced and are fully backlit. Typing in this also is not very tough and it comes with dedicated numeric keys.
- Price – Now considering the price tag of $1,200 I hold it as an indispensable feature of the Medion Erazer for ensuring the quality. I mean it’s not a very easy task to create a monster but yes, it looks decent which is not bad for entry level gaming.
- Battery – The divine FHD+ display does take its toll on the battery backup. While surfing the internet over the WI-Fi Medion Erazer P7647 could stay awake for only as long as 4 hours (approx) due to its high power consumption. Although that’s not too bad for a 17.3’ laptop.
The Medion Erazer P7647 (30023352) is undoubtedly pretty capable and is worth buying given the $1200 price. Somewhat older GPU and a dual-core processor can be an issue though. But that’s a tradeoff between the price and the crisp visuals if you ask me. But other than that it’s a fine 17.3-inch notebook. Recommended.
