Note to manufacturers: merely sticking on Swarovski Crystals does not a desirable gadget make. ‘Truly horrible’ was one description in the Stuff office for this monstrosity.Medion describe it as ‘an exclusive laptop aimed specifically at women’. If by women they mean magpies then they could have a hit on their hands. For what it’s worth, the pattern is made up of 300 separate Swarovski gems on the lid. The swirling flower also gets repeated on the trackpad – although not in crystal, thankfully.For all the crass design touches there’s actually a decent lappy hiding under there. A 1.7GHz Core Duo processor, a gig of RAM, a 100GB hard drive and a 12in widescreen XGA display, all in a compact frame. Still, if it’s all the same, we’ll pass.
