Model: Medion, a subsidiary company of Lenovo, offers the Akoya series of affordable laptops. This particular model, the S6413T is actually a convertible that functions in four different modes, which allow users to perform specific tasks more easily. For example, in tablet mode, users can play touchpad games and work when travelling. In stand mode, viewing pictures and movies becomes a breeze. In creative mode, where the kick stand allows the display to be tilted, users can draw and design more easily. Finally, the traditional notebook mode makes everyday tasks user friendly and more efficient. The 15.6 inch display has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Best of all, it comes with an anti-glare layer that makes viewing in bright light possible.
The Windows 8.1 system comes with an Intel Core i5-4210U processor clocked at up to 1.7 GHz, 4 GB RAM, a 1 TB hard disk and an Intel HD 4400 Graphics card. There is a pair of Dolby Home theatre speakers that will no doubt add to the gaming and viewing experience. In different modes, this convertible can measure anywhere from 10-33 mm in thickness and weigh 1.3 kg to 2.8 kg. To make it easier and more portable, the keypad can be detached and reattached when more serious business calls for it.
Intel HD Graphics 4400:
ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
4210U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.7 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
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. In 2011, Medion has been acquired by the laptop manufacturer Lenovo.
72%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
