Medion made a little name for itself in the European netbook market with the launch of the first Akoya Mini netbook in 2008. Sure, it was just a rebranded MSI Wind U100, but that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, since the Wind U100 was one of the best netbooks available at the time. Since then Medion has released a number of additional models under the Akoya name. The latest is the Medion Akoya E1222, which features a 10 inch display and 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 Pine Trail CPU.
The Medion Akoya E1222 will ship in Germany in March for about 299 Euros, or $408 US.
The notebook has 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, and a 1.3MP webcam. It has a glossy, 1024 x 600 pixel display and runs Windows 7 Starter Edition.
