[ad_1]

A laptop to replace the desktop PC? Then the display should be as large as possible and have a bit more features than cheap models – like the Medion Akoya E16402 (MD63830). This will be available from July 29, 2021 for 599 euros at the discounter Aldi – with a large 16-inch display and a fast Intel processor.

Medion Akoya E16402: More display

The Medion notebook is slightly larger than most notebooks: Instead of the usual 15.6 inches, the display measures 16 inches – a welcome extra centimeter of image diagonal. The edge to the left and right of the display is nice and narrow, so the Aldi notebook (dimensions 37.0×24.5×2.0 centimeters) is hardly larger than a 15-inch device. Weighing in at 1.95 kilograms, it is not a flyweight – but for the price and size, that’s perfectly fine. The display shows the usual ones in this price range 1920×1080 pixels (Full HD) and works with IPS technology. This should ensure high image quality regardless of the viewing angle – the test will show how good the image really is.
