Advice on this laptop?

https://m.medion.com/inm/medion/1o4l...m-app-prod04A3

Is this too good to be true? Where have they cut back? What's the catch? What's been sacrificed? It seems so tempting but I'm wary of buying it incase it falls apart as soon as I get it. I haven't heard of the brand before, just know it's a German based company. Anyone had experience with this brand?

Looking for the best possible 15"-16" gaming laptop under £1000 ($1500).

Should note I live in UK. Cheers!

I don't know about that brand, but spec wise that is one hell of a bloody beast.

But for almot 1000 pounds you could get a far far better desktop. PRoblems with laptops are that they generally run hot and if the prices dont add up(I got a good laptop for cheaper) then the qaulity of the housing may be cheaper. Try looking up some reviews.

For example.
http://www.notebookcheck.net/Medion-...8.65007.0.html This one gives users scores based on stuff(so 90% overall) with a rating of 65% on mobility etc etc.

Dam, I've never seen a GTX 570M in a laptop that cheap in my years on the interwebz.

Desktops are out of the question. I need to move this around (not much but often enough). Laptops only. Strict budget too. Cannot cost more than this!
