Medion intros netbook
PC maker Medion recently announced it will soon offer its 11.6-inch Akoya Mini E1312 netbook. The screen has a 1366x768 resolution and is paired with an HDMI output for a similar resolution on a TV, with graphics processing coming via an ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 chipset. Rather than choose Intel's Atom, Medion instead opts for AMD's low-power 1.5GHz Sempron 210U, and there is 1GB of RAM onboard. The 160GB hard drive will be preloaded with Windows XP.
A six-cell battery will be standard with a nine-cell optional, and there is a 1.3-megapixel camera along with Bluetooth 2.1 support. Connecting to the Internet and networks can be done via a Wi-Fi or Ethernet connections. Three USB 2.0 ports and a 3-in-1 memory card round out the features.
The Mini E1312 will be available in black or white on July 12th in Europe, with prices starting at the equivalent of $550. [via Pocket-lint]
