The Medion Akoya Mini was one of the first rebadged versions of the MSI Wind netbook to hit the market. Available in Europe, the Akoya Mini is identical to the MSI Wind U100 in all but name — and price. Register Hardware reports that Medion will be selling the netbook through UK grocer Sainsbury’s for just £279, or about $483 US. That makes the Medion Akoya the cheapest version of the MSI Wind available in the UK at the moment.

This particular model, known as the Medion Akoya Mini E1210 has 802.11b/g and n wireless, but no Bluetooth. It packs a 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM and an 80GB hard drive. You can read more about the Medion Akoya Mini in the Liliputing Product Database.

  1. Cheapest version of the MSI Wind? The Advent 4211 from PC World has been at exactly that price since it launched at the beginning of the Summer!

    1. Actually, the Advent 4211 is £279.99, which makes it a tiny bit more expensive. I’ll grant you, it’s not a big distinction, but the Medion Akoya Mini is a tiny bit cheaper.

      1. Brad, I salute you – in the spirit of the Liliputian, you are master of the tiny!
