There hasn’t been much news in North America about Medion netbooks, but they’re a pretty hot commodity in Europe. The company has just released their latest netbook, the Akoya Mini E1217, on their website.
This sweet looking netbook is pretty standard of its species, with a 10.1″ screen display, a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 1 GB of DDR2 RAM, and a 160 GB SATA hard drive. It also has an 802.11 N-capable Wi-Fi adapter, Bluetooth, and the Windows 7 Starter OS.
The Medion Akoya Mini E1217 netbook boasts a price tag of 329€ (nearly $500 USD), a bit on the high-end, if you ask me.
Medion’s not going to wait around for MSI to come out with a touchscreen, no sir. It’s taking matters into its own hands and releasing its own touchscreen netbook, the Medion Akoya Mini 1315.
Some specs of this rumored netbook include an 11.6″ screen display, an AMD Athlon Neo processor, an ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 graphics chipset, and 2 GB of RAM. Since this netbook has a larger screen than the ASUS Eee PC T91, we’ll expect an even better experience.
The Medion Akoya Mini 1315 is rumored to be released later this year with a price tag around €600 (or £520). But that’s just a rumor. We’ll keep you posted.
