Medion Interview with Sandro Fabris
Can you tell us a little about what your role within Medion involves?

As Product Marketing Manager within MEDION I have a close eye on the markets and the customers' demands. By gathering information on the market and potential customers we are in the position to provide the best gaming product based on the demand and requirements of the target group.

Can you tell us a little about how you see Medion fitting into the gaming laptop marketplace? What are your main goals when providing laptops for this type of consumer?

MEDION established a well known gaming sub brand. We provide gaming products that meet the design and performance requirements of a gamer and that for an unbeatable price.


There are a wide range of models on the Medion site; if a consumer doesn't find one which exactly meets their needs can they look to get some tweaks added to an order? For example adding more memory. If not, what is Medions policy on user upgrades, would installing new memory (as an example) void the warranty?

For each model MEDION offers a huge amount of different configurations to meet almost all different customer requirements. Nevertheless if a customer wants to upgrade its Notebook or PC system regarding memory or hard disk capacity this would not void the warranty (with regards to the hard disk or an additional SSD there need to be a dedicated slot available).


Looking back to value again, one sure way to enhance the price/performance ratio of a system is to allow overclocking. Is this something Medion might consider allowing on future systems? Maybe having one of the spare buttons beneath the screen on the Erazer activate an approved boost mode?
In fact within our MEDION ERAZER Desktop PC Lineup MEDION already allows overclocking. Either through a hardware button and/or (configuration based) a software user interface the customer has the chance to boost his system.

For consumers buying a PC in the next few months the concern will be there that Windows 8 will be available soon after, making the system feel a little out-dated. Do you have anything you can tell us with regard to upgrade plans for new Medion customers?

Through the Windows Upgrade Offer, customers who purchase a MEDION PC based on Widows 7 from June 2, 2012 through January 31, 2012 will receive a promotional offer for an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro. The customer buys the upgrade directly from Microsoft.


Tell us a little more about your personal PC, our readers are always interested in what manufacturer employees use themselves? Are you a gamer or media enthusiast? What hardware do you use to get the job done?

To meet my jobs demands I rely on two different PC systems. When I'm at my desk I use a MEDION Desktop PC that is powered by a Dual Core processor and shared graphics. I use two 23 inch monitors to be more efficient. Whilst travelling I'm using a MEDION 13.3 inch Notebook with CULV processor and up to 8 hours of battery life. Mobility is here more important than performance. At home I use a Desktop PC with Quad Core processor and discrete graphics. The system components are set up for gaming, if needed.


Before we finish up, do you have any final message for our readers?
