Medion announces compact AKOYA Nettop PC


For anyone wanting a PC with decent specs that’s quiet and small, the Medion AKOYA Nettop PC is worth taking a look at. It won’t break the speed record but is perfectly adequate for general home and Internet usage.

It features the Intel Atom 230 CPU running at 1.6GHz coupled with the Intel 945GC Express chipset and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950.

Medion launches Akoya P8610 18" media centre notebook


Medion, the mid-range laptop producer who sell great machines at surprisingly low prices, yesterday announced the Akoya P8610 at Dolby’s sound laboratories in deepest darkest Soho. It’s a whopping 18.4″ beast of a machine, with Blu-ray drive, and some awesome Dolby sound-enhancing technology. Let’s take a look in more detail.

The aforementioned 18.4″ screen runs at 1,680 x 945 resolution, which the astute among you will recognise as 16:9 aspect ratio. The Dolby audio system will happily output in 5.1 surround, or alternatively you can use the surround virtualisation filter on a stereo signal to make it sound like it’s a surround source, either on a speaker system or on headphones.
