Bluetooth and larger HD are welcome improvements over the Medion Akoya they had for sale earlier this year. They write further: “Li-ion battery with high performance” ..Arhhh … Watch IT its enough to take your mouth too full! The weight suggests that it is just a 3-cell battery on this machine. And it is clearly the biggest drawback .
I am “obviously” Eee PC fan – but the reasons for selecting Medion Akoya offer over the Asus Eee PC 901’eren would be the screen size and possibly the use of too much disk space (which is endurable general kind, rather than the shock-resistant SSD model as most Asus Eee PC running). An extra inch does not sound much but actually looks more – so depending on use, it may be important. For email and Word, I do not care. Should I read the other hand, REALLY, really a lot of text on the train or make a little graphic (NOT design – you must not fool yourself that you can on any of them), so I want the extra inch to get “the magnified image up on “..
But the extra inch makes so only 3-cell battery even more miserable, because the screen is of course a vicious bloodsucker. So my guess is that the battery provides approximately one hour of concentrated use, while the Asus Eee PC would hold 4-5 x as much time
