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

Comment

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":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
