The Akoya P8610 is a monster-sized and well-specified laptop, suitable for home TV and film entertainment. Build quality and styling are basic but functional; and the pricing is at the lower end for a big screen Blu-ray Drive laptop, making this a model worth investigating.

You can toggle between the high and low power settings if you wish, and a neat Nvidia logo displays which setting you are on. Even so you’ll only get 2hrs 15mins from the battery on performance mode, boosted to 3hrs 30mins in power saver mode, with the screen brightness right down. Start watching a Blu-ray disc, and even in power saving mode you are looking at just over 2 hours from the battery, so a push to finish many films. But then there is the price and at £799 Medion have once again opted for a compelling price point. The inclusion of a Blu-ray drive as standard does provide some degree of future proofing, however, there are better quality builds, more powerful processors and better designs out there if you have a little more cash. If cash is king, however, then this is worth seriously considering.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS: Slower clocked 9600M GT and therefore a bit slower and cooler. In conjunction with an 9100M the 9600M GS is able to use HybridPower to save current.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T5800: Entry level dual core processor based on the Merom core without Virtualization support and a low maximum temperature.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


18.4": 18 inch display size is a rare and very big size for desktop-replacement laptops. Laptops with 18 inch displays did not exist before 2008. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.8 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


Medion: Medion AG is a German consumer electronics company. It operates in Europe, the United States, and the Asia-Pacific region. The main products are computers, TVs, refrigerators, toasters, and fitness equipment. The manufacturer of laptops Medion mainly is active in the German market, but to smaller extent also in Western Europe. Market shares and amount of reviews are low. Above all, supermarkets like Aldi sell their laptops.
