Reviews for the Medion S5612

60% A laptop on a diet offered at Aldi stores
Source: Computer Active English
A decent laptop with good looks but let down by a couple of flaws

Good points Very thin; decent performance; lots of memory and storage space

Bad points Not enormously powerful; washed-out screen; so-so keyboard; no CD or DVD drive

60% Medion Akoya S5612
Source: Channel Web English
Medion’s Akoya S5612 notebook is available from 29 October from Aldi shops. Its 15.6in widescreen has an anti-glare coating but was disappointingly murky at first glance. On further inspection the default screen brightness was very low – when increased it was better, if still slightly washed out. A decent laptop with good looks but let down by a couple of flaws.
