Reviews for the Medion E1312
Are 11" netbooks the new 10"? The Akoya Mini E1312 is Medion's largest netbook and features the rare but increasingly popular 11.6-inch screen size. This makes it a very comfortable netbook to use and it is certainly worth a look for those in the market for a larger machine. While the Akoya E1312 has one fault in its keyboard, which takes a while to get used to, this is an otherwise excellent netbook with a host of useful features.

Intel's Atom may have ruled the netbook roost for some time now, but while Nvidia's Ion looms menacingly on the horizon, the latest portable from Medion surprises by opting for a hitherto unseen AMD-ATI double-act. On the surface, the Akoya Mini E1312 is just another to find itself somewhere between a netbook and a fully-grown ultraportable. Indeed, there's no getting round the fact that the 11.6in display leaves the chassis noticeably chunkier than the average 10in netbook. Has a genuinely powerful alternative to the Atom at its core, but the rest of the package disappoints
