The Medion Akoya P6512 is a competently specificed 15in laptop, obviously built to a budget but with some useful features such as dual graphics, matt screen and eSATA and HDMI ports. At £500 it’s not too expensive, although for less money you can also find well-made notebooks from the bigger names, using more efficient Intel processors. Look out for the Acer  5740 and Samsung R530 as worthy alternatives.

The Aldi special Medion Akoya P6512 is a standard laptop with a 15.6in widescreen display. That gives plenty of room for its large keyboard, and although the keys are shallower than we would have liked, they were well spaced-out to avoid any butterfingers typing mistakes. There is even room for a numeric keypad. Decent price, decent specifications, even if nothing stands out

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470: Entry level DirectX 11 chip with GDDR5 support but only 80 shader cores. Supports Eyefinity (up to 4 monitors) and 8-ch HD audio over HDMI. Performance on par with the old GeForce 8600M GT.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

P320: Entry level dual core processor for 13"+ laptops featuring a DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
