Where is Kuro when you need him? He would be able to find you something.
Thats fine, you are not selling.
They are lesser known. but Medion have had some great gaming laptops going by some of the reviews on notebookcheck
they are rated quite highly (81-88%). but have one or 2 small niggles which may or may not be a big of a thing depending what youre requirements are
Went to some place on tottenham court road today, Manager said he will match any online price i can find on PC hardware, plus it is a short walk away from my University so i might be shopping there soon!
Thanks, but probably not Medion, I need something with easy to find parts all over the world, that limits my choices to the major players (+Clevo chasis)
Have you looked at the parts inside a laptop??? Their ALL THE SAME.
Just because a DELL laptop uses an i5 450 doesnt mean any other laptop of similar spec doesnt or wont.
Unless youre talking about going right down to the grain like swapping the mobo or chassis for something else then fair enough but i dont think youre that extreme.
Its all the same.
My old BenQ S73g was an 'Asia Only' model. but yet I could find parts for it on EBAY.
Manufacturers use the SAME parts as each other but in different configurations. theres nothing different about them except the brand on the laptop.
But cool, If you want to hate on Medion because youre afraid parts wont be available. I know differently of course, but I also do laptop repairs as well as desktop. And i have managed to get parts for even the oldest of laptops ive been asked to repair.
so take your pick. MSI 660 is also a good choice.
Ok, managed to delay the purchase, will come back later.
Definitely need factor in build quality when it comes to laptops even if they have similar hardware.
I know most ACER users who owns their lowest end laptops are more likely break down than a laptop with same hardware,just because build quality was bad.
£20 less for the GX660R than scan:
The GT550m quite good choice but 5870 still tops it:
Or you can probably try and get the GT680R with GTX460m and sandy bridge CPU:
Build quality is important, he is willing to pay a premium for that, because his old laptop overheats every so often even after shimming.
Medion have good build quality. I have a few cousins who have their laptops and they are still working. One had a dead pixel after the first 6months but he sent it in and they fixed it for him.
Netbookcheck gave medion gaming laptops 81-88%. what more could you want??? 99%????
Even my HP DM1 scored 81%. and if you check on notebookchecks main page they currently have some gaming laptops from bespoke gaming laptop builders EVEN an Alienware M18x and theyve rated them between 82-88%.
My friend's Dell scored 80+ and it suffered from overheating. That only manifest itself after long periods of use, something which reviewers will miss, just like Nvidia's fail mobile graphics. I will still get him to take a look, but as with all rich people they will not be bothered with it, which is why I still need "mainstream manufacturers" recommendation. You know how hard it is to convince Monster Beats idiots that their headset is shitty.
Sorry for my late reply and all, but thats cool, I saw some others mention it on here before lol
i went to watch DJ VIBES when i was 15 at the laserdrome, i was the young kid with the pork pie hat, big chain and rings...:shadedshu lol... good times...
i'm from doncaster so we grew up with the doncaster warehouse and loads of gypsies/travellers... it was lively man...lol
one of my pals swears by Iration steppas sound system, not sure what he pays to rent it out though...
he uses it down at SUBDUB in chapeltown leeds....
its pretty mad watching everyones hair blowing in the bass waves....
those other speakers i put up were just an example of whats available pal...
well if hes rich and he wants mainstream then a MSI GT780DX is nice one for the money. the Medion ones still offer better performance for a lot less though.
i know what you mean fella,i used to climb through toilet windows to get in coz they turned me away at the gates (far too young) haha there were scene's popping up all over the shop wether squat sessions or even a bunch of us making our oldest pal drive round the m25 with no tunes on and windows open listening for subs doing there stuff.
Im from south london which had a plentiful supply of sessions especially when ragga jungle really kicked off in 93 ish
I know chapeltown in leeds very well,so of course i've been to the W.I.C. in laycocke place once or twice mark irations system is proper,though i prefer reggae sets to sound like they should-the Iration Steppa set (now) is world class for sure-if you want some entertaining stories:ask mark about shrimpers in the 90s
I been messing with speakers since i was about 13,in fact it was hearing irations kitachi era system that made me want to build my own amps,so i got books and off i went!
the there is a sound called king earthquake that is roughly as powerful if not slightly more-but nowhere near as clean/good sounding!
Jah Tubbys gives some mad vibrations off,throat wobbling stuff...
Shaka is the king of all by far though,that sound could take your breathe away and not let it back till the needle was lifted.Not even loud,just Very Very powerful.
2000w +/- thats for the whole set lol,god valves rock!
my pal used to climb inside scoops i built to test for internal vibrations/bad joints? he was quite happy to lay inside a 1kw bin while it was put through its paces
now he cant hear so he dont care...
would the OCZ 90Gb Sata II SSD in my specs still be worth £80-90 I wonder.
Probably closer to £80
I paid £72 for an agility 2 recently... £80 sounds about right...
edit: 90gb, 3.5"
Put my SSD up for sale if anyones interested
My eyes is busted from making the RG Aile Strike. Stickers are damn small and annoying, but the overall detail of the kit is astounding. I still haven't finished, having started at about 2pm until just now with a 1hr break. Chest, head and backpack left.
When it is done
I shall look forward to it
Here i just got some emails saying Delivery Status Notification (Failure) from email@example.com
Apparently i tried to email a bunch of people, but there isnt anything in my deleted emails or sent emails. Someone managed to spam using my email address and to people in my contacts.
Hmmmn changed the password obviously but seems a bit weird, its like they didnt even get into my account but somehow managed to send spam email using my address and to people on my contacts list. Some of the emails must be old ones that dont exist anymore and thats why i was getting Delivery Status Notification (Failure) emails.
Got an email from Scan saying-
"The following email could not be accepted into our system, please use the Scan web site to log your query - http://web6.scan.co.uk/aspnet/support/query.aspx
Thank you for using this service.
But that is clearly spam too. Weird as i never sign up for any dodgy forums or mailing lists unless its like Ebuyers deals or something.
