Complete List: The Best PCs

Medion Akoya P53004 in the test: inconspicuous

The Medion Akoya P53004 comes with an inconspicuous, simple housing. The black, partly perforated metal side walls give the user a tiny look inside, but the openings are primarily used for air circulation. Medion has given the plastic front cover a chic carbon look. Good: As is common with many PCs today, there are also two USB sockets on the upper front of the Medion for convenient connection of USB sticks or external SSDs as well as sockets for headphones and a microphone.

A look inside the Medion Akoya P53004: airy and tidy.
If you open the right side wall, you will find a tidy interior – but not all components are cutting-edge:
  • Processor: The motor is the Ryzen 5 Pro 4650G, which has only been used in a few PCs so far and which AMD introduced last year.

The heart of the Medion Akoya P53004 is the AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 4650G processor.
  • Graphics chip: The Vega 7 graphics chip housed in the CPU is responsible for calculating the image reproduction on connected monitors – there is no separate graphics card.
  • Random access memory: For a PC that costs 549 euros, the Medion has a comparatively large amount of RAM – the processor is supported by an impressive 16 gigabytes.

Upgrade: possible, but not much

Aldi PC Medion Akoya P53004 in the test: A lot of steam thanks to AMD CPU!  It's a shame: the power supply only offers 250 watts of power.
It’s a shame: the power supply only offers 250 watts of power.
Overall, the standard equipment is quite decent – even if it is not complete. For example, there is no memory card reader. The Medion goes into the network either by cable or wirelessly using the fast WLAN-ax standard. He also has Bluetooth for appropriate speakers, and Medion also includes a decent keyboard and mouse set. The new Aldi PC is not perfect – but for 549 euros customers are not allowed to ask for a super-fast, fully equipped PC. Nevertheless: The Akoya P53004 works surprisingly quickly and economically for a PC in this price range – without the annoying fan noise. Its configuration is good, but the upgrade options are only mediocre – it would look much better with a more powerful power supply. The Aldi PC just missed a good final grade (test result: 2.5 “satisfactory”).
