If you liked the idea of the ASUS X205TA, the compact fanless 11.6-inch low-cost laptop launched last year you might also be interested in the £149 Medion Akoya S2218 (MD 99599) laptop that’s at Aldi on Thursday in the UK. It will be available in mainland Europe one week later and I expect there’ll be queues at opening.

When a new product category comes to Medion, you know it’s gone mainstream. Medion, a Lenovo company, is headquartered in Germany and focuses on good value technology, some of which is exclusively sold through large retailers such as Aldi. Netbooks broke into Aldi in 2008 where 20,000 boxes could be shifted in a matter of hours.  Ultrabooks could do the same.

Big customers like Aldi are big business for Medion, but only when the time is right. The Medion Akoya S4211 could mean that the time is right.
