Reviews for the Medion Akoya S4216-MD99081

60% Medion Akoya S4216 (MD 99081) Windows 8 Ultrabook
Source: Good Gear Guide English
While the Medion Akoya S4216 (MD 99081) is an interesting Ultrabook, to be sure, the overall build quality is very much on par with the price point. It just doesn't feel solid and the culprit here is the keyboard, which bounces very noticeably as its keys are hit. That said, if you value specs and features more than input devices, then the Akoya is a champ.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.


1.9 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
