The 15.6-inch notebook is now shipping with a Full HD display, 16 GB of RAM, i7-7700HQ CPU, and a 256 GB SSD for 1400 Euros. The chassis is unsurprisingly reminiscent to the existing Lenovo Legion Y series.

Lenovo subsidiary Medion has just made available its latest affordable gaming notebook with the following core specifications:

  • 15.6-inch FHD IPS display
  • 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU
  • GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU w/ 4 GB GDDR5 VRAM
  • 16 GB DDR4 RAM
  • 256 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD

Other features include an Intel 8265 wireless-ac adapter, stereo Harman Kardon speakers, and a USB 3.1 Type-C port alongside the usual USB Type-A, HDMI, and RJ-45. Otherwise, the system is fairly barebones without any of the eccentric features found on higher-end gaming laptops such as HDR, 120 Hz refresh rates, or individually-lit RGB keys.

A quick look at the chassis of the new Erazer X6603 reveals that the design is a modified version of Lenovo's existing Legion Y520 series of notebooks. The angled speaker grilles, bar hinge, and surrounding trackpad features are not unlike what Lenovo currently offers on its latest Y series. The Medion, however, appears to be more streamlined for a wider mainstream appeal.

The Erazer X6603 is now available through the official Medion online store for about 1400 Euros. Medion, while not as popular in the United States, has a larger presence in UK and European markets.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
