Medion offers personalized laptop on the cheap

Darren Murph

If there were ever a jack of all trades in the electronics biz, Medion would be it. The company seems to make everything (or else their logo sure gets around), and this time the label appears by way of a new budget laptop. The MIM 2220 is a predictably average machine that sports a 15.4-inch WXGA display, a dual-layer DVD burner, WiFi, 256MB of RAM, 40GB HD, and a trio of USB 2.0 ports along with a FireWire connector. Surprisingly, the notebook is powered by a 1.7GHz Intel Pentium M processor, which is a notch above the Celeron we anticipated. But the run-of-the-mill specs are overshadowed by the bargain basement pricetag (just £400) and the option to have Medion (or whoever really makes this thing) emboss any picture onto the lid of the machine for another £45. While the uniqueness of the offering -- and the delightfully low price point -- may draw in a few customers, you may want to think twice about about completely ruining its (small) resale value by plastering your face on it. Might we suggest something a little more cheeky, perhaps?
