Medion Akoya E6221 Overview

The Medion Akoya E6221 is a cheap laptop, a fact that reflects in its build quality and design. It comes in a glossy black finish that will have you clean dust and fingerprints off it more often than you would want to; the plastic used for construction is not the best plastic out there, being quite easy to bend. Overlooking these two aspects, the specs of the Medion Akoya E6221 are quite impressive, given its price. It is one of the cheapest Intel i3-powered laptops out there, so those who want pure performance without being interested about aesthetics and other details will surely like this laptop. In charge of performance is the Intel Core i3 2350M processor with its integrated Intel HD3000 graphics and 4 GB of RAM, a combination that provides decent performance in most usage scenarios. Users with higher demands in the department of graphics won’t be very happy with the integrated graphics chip but let’s be realistic here, people that need graphics-intensive programs won’t be buying the cheapest laptop to do their work on. However, the integrated graphics are still powerful enough to run Full HD content flawlessly, content easily accessible via the integrated Blu-ray drive – a feature that indicates that the laptop is aimed at multimedia enthusiasts. An integrated multi card-reader confirms this, making downloading pictures and clips from a digital camera a very easy task.
