Microstar notebook

  Kilobyte 16:18 17 Jul 03

Has anyone had experience of the Microstar notebooks currently at Dixons / PCW ? They seem good value but does the price reflect the build quality / reliability? I think they are related to the Medion brand, but any comments on this would be welcome.

Kilobyte, yes the Microstar notebooks are made by Medion. Can't really comment on reliability as these particular models haven't been around too long yet, but they're a great laptop spec for the price. Don't buy them for games though as the graphics card is integrated and won't run many new games at all.

The only downpoints about them is lack of PC Card slots for upgradeability (such as wireless networking etc) and the feel of the chassis.

(The integrated gfx I mentioned only relates to the £699 model)

I did a search on the whatlaptop.co.uk forums and the majority of comments are negative about them, a lot of problems with dead pixels.
