Medion, known for rebadging expensive PCs and selling them cheap, has just sent us word of its new gaming PC – the Erazer. It’s a reassuringly high-specced machine considering the price, with perhaps only its graphics card letting it down. Let’s have a look in more detail.
The machine is centred around the fantastic Intel Core i7 920 processer, which runs at 2.66GHz with 8MB of cache. That’s paired up with a respectable 9600GT graphics card with 512MB of graphics memory and DirectX10 compatibility. There’s a 1TB hard drive, a whopping 6GB of RAM, a full 10 (10!) USB ports and your average Wi-Fi, optical media drive, memory card reader and a few bits of bundled software.
All that’s available right now for the low low price of £899, though that doesn’t include mouse, keyboard, monitor or mousemat. And we all know how important a mousemat is. I’d have been happier if Medion had swapped out the i7 for a slightly lower-spec, but just as capable, Q6600 processor and upgraded the graphics card instead, to an 8800GTX, perhaps.
