The Medion Akoya P6512 is a competently specificed 15in laptop, obviously built to a budget but with some useful features such as dual graphics, matt screen and eSATA and HDMI ports. At £500 it’s not too expensive, although for less money you can also find well-made notebooks from the bigger names, using more efficient Intel processors. Look out for the Acer 5740 and Samsung R530 as worthy alternatives.

The Aldi special Medion Akoya P6512 is a standard laptop with a 15.6in widescreen display. That gives plenty of room for its large keyboard, and although the keys are shallower than we would have liked, they were well spaced-out to avoid any butterfingers typing mistakes. There is even room for a numeric keypad. Decent price, decent specifications, even if nothing stands out

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470: Entry level DirectX 11 chip with GDDR5 support but only 80 shader cores. Supports Eyefinity (up to 4 monitors) and 8-ch HD audio over HDMI. Performance on par with the old GeForce 8600M GT.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
