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.

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.


2.3 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
