Medion's Akoya E7214 is a 17in notebook with a low price tag but plenty of features. It's going on sale in Aldi supermarkets next week. It's perfect for anyone on a budget who wants a desktop replacement-style notebook that can be used for everyday office work, image editing and even for higher end tasks such as ripping DVDs and encoding videos. We like it.

The Medion Akoya E7214 is a great choice for anyone who wants an inexpensive yet fully featured and well performing notebook computer. You won't be able to play games with it, nor will you be able to use it while on the road, but as a home computer for everyday office work, schoolwork, and even photo processing and light video editing, it's perfect. It ships with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit), Microsoft Office 2010 Starter and BullGuard Internet Security software, so it's ready to use for word processing and basic spreadsheet work as soon as you power it up.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


350M:

The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.8 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.
