Reviews for the Medion MD96327

80% Review: Medion MD 96327 notebook computer
Source: vnunet.com English
Prices of notebook computers have dropped a lot in recent years, but it's still a surprise to see a 17in model for £500. Medion, which specialises in low-cost electronics, is the company behind this achievement, along with Sainsbury's shops, which is where it's exclusively available from August 1. The main feature is the 17in display, with a resolution of 1,440 x 900 pixels, which makes for an impressively detailed desktop. The screen is quite bright, colours are vivid and its widescreen format makes watching DVDs on it a joy. The two tiny speakers located just below the screen aren't good for watching films, though, since they produce a tinny and unsatisfying sound. There is a jack at the front of the chassis for attaching headphones and this same jack can also output stereo or surround sound to a hi-fi. To squeeze in such a good screen, Medion has, it's true, skimped on other areas. This means the computer only includes a 1.6GHz AMD Turion dual-core processor.

ATI Radeon Xpress 1100: The successor of the Xpress M200 integrated shared memory graphic card is based on a x300 core. Aero Glass should run fluently on the card.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.


TL-50: In 90nm produced dual core processor with a low clock rate of 1.6 GHz. The TL-50 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.1":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
