At the thinnest point, it measures 2.9 centimeters, equivalent to five stacked ipad Pro on the thickest 3.2 centimeters. His weight of about 2.7 kilograms is high, goes for a 17-incher, but alright.

Weak point screen

So a huge notebook has also advantages. With his exactly 17.2 inches big and good anti-reflective screen, it is for the films look perfect but his diagonal by 43.8 centimeters, the user also helps working: so he can easily keep the Inbox via Outlook in mind, while it creates a powerpoint presentation in a second window. A pity that the screen doesn’t show videos and photos in full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), but less detail with only 1600 x 900 pixels. This is not out of date. Also lacks brilliance, colours are pale, side looking at is the tonal history falsified.

High speed

For the Medion in the test turned out to be faster workers. Is powered by only a core i3 processor, 10 the Windows operating system, programs, and often needed data store but on a fast SSD with 119 gigabytes. And it unnecessarily slows down the processor. Class: A conventional hard disk with at least 932 giant also has the Medion. What is missing? There is no separate strong graphics chip on board for a fluid display of current games like the Witcher 3. That customers in this price range but can also not demand.

Long battery life, cool and quiet

But the battery has much endurance, in the test, the Medion came almost four and a half hours without plug. On top of that is hard to hear the Aldi notebook even under full load and remained cool at the bottom (11 degrees difference to room temperature). The large size has also advantages: components such as processor and chipset have enough space and air cooling with high fan speeds is so not necessary to breathe. That pushes the noise and the heat development.
