Medion Akoya is MSI Wind!

Posted on 24 April 2008 by

At 10″ and 1.2Kg I probably won’t be putting this into the ultra mobile PC database but it’s interesting to note that the Medion Akoya Mini E1210 is a version of the MSI Wind (check the close-up images against the MSI Wind video below.) At 400 Euro’s or below though, it’s an interesting option.

    HP 2133 is 1.2kg too, isn’t it? It is in the mininote or netbook category. You must think of maintaining a UMPC only database or to include mininotes (EEE PC, HP 2133, MSI Wind with its VAR versions).

    I know it costs significantly more (and has to be imported), but if you (or someone else) does start keeping a database that includes 10″ laptops, Panasonic’s R7 should really be included. They’ve been making really great (<1kg) 10″ laptops for years. I just wish that they would jump on this bandwagon and make stripped-down versions; with their excellent battery life, I’d be all over one with Eee-ish internals bringing the price down a little bit.

    Oh, good catch there, Chippy! I hadn’t looked closely enough to see it’s the same as the MSI Wind! I like that color scheme more too!
