Reviews for the Medion Erazer Beast X40

88.4% Medion Erazer Beast X40 review: Gaming notebook with RTX 4090 | Notebookcheck
Go big, not go home: With the Core i9-13900HX and GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop, Medion has given this notebook the latest and most powerful hardware available right now. The device also features a fast 16:10 screen (2,560 x 1,600), a mechanical keyboard and a pretty good battery life.
100% Medion Erazer X40 Beast review: it’s an animal
Source: Stuff TV English
Medion has managed an unlikely feat with the Erazer X40 Beast, making such an expensive laptop seem like good value. This is about as little as you can hope to pay at the time of review for a laptop with an Nvidia RTX 4090 graphics card, 13th Gen Core i9 processor and 32GB RAM. The fanciest models charge hundreds and hundreds more for the same specs. And yet Medion still manages to fit in some top drawer design features like a cracking Cherry MX mechanical keyboard and large glass touchpad. Where do you feel the cuts? The integrated speakers are not good, and we’ve seen much better 1080p webcams this year. We do wish the fan tone had managed to avoid the higher-pitch element to the tone heard. There’s some “whee” with the “whoosh”, but it doesn’t take too much shine off this laptop. Not persuaded? Check out the HP Omen 17, one of the few competing models at a similar price.

90% Medion Erazer Beast X40 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
I really had to struggle to find fault with the Erazer X40 Beast. The display is good, it’s massively powerful, has an excellent mechanical keyboard and some nice ancillary touches like biometric log-in and an optional water cooler. And all for a pretty reasonable price. Unless HDR performance is a must – that’s the only reason I’ve docked the X40 a half-star – you can’t really go wrong. If you do want that Mini LED display goodness, the Acer Predator Helios 16 (2023) is your best bet if you don’t want the price to skyrocket. For a taste of the good life, look towards the Asus ROG Strix Scar 16 (2023).

17.00":

This range for display formats was and is a rarity. It is larger than the general standard of 15 inches, but not yet in the range of large workstations. One usually has higher screen resolutions available, but portability suffers from that.

2.88 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
