Medion Akoya E16401 review: an ultra compact 16 ”

In this review of the Medion Akoya E16401, a compact, lightweight laptop that offers performance suited to the Home User

Let’s start by saying that, if you want to know better the Brand Medion, which is becoming increasingly popular in the European market, we refer you to reading this article. But no more chatter, let’s get to the point with the Akoya E16401.

Il Medion Akoya E16401 represents the same version that we have extensively told and described in the review dedicated to the older brother S17405, what changes then? This model is the cheapest choice, but in some ways more portable. The hardware equipment is the same, but to change the screen ratio, which here falls from the generous 17 “, to 16.1” with a 40.7 cm display.

It is therefore presented in the same aluminum body, very robust and resistant, and offers a hardware compartment that makes it ideal for multimedia use operations typical of the Home User, or of the student, of course, without particular needs.

Design and specifications | Medion Akoya E16401 review

It looks just like the whole Gamma Akoya with a respectable and very modern design. His intent is to hit the mid-range, while managing to offer a balanced product at the same time.

The new Medion Akoya S17405 comes on the market with an elegant design, thin edges, all aluminum, recessed keyboard, and extreme lightness. Only 16.5mm thick, it’s perfect for her to carry around weight of only 2kg. This Medion Akoya E16401 has a 16.1 “displaythe right visual space to make it ideal for transport, a middle ground, between elements potentially visible on the screen, and still acceptable portability.

The width is 349mm, while the depth is 229mm. The design is clean, with a backlit keyboard, which never hurts. The Trackpad does not have generous dimensions, it is small in size, and does not have a perfect diagonal to use it with gestures of various kinds. Overall, however, it turns out to be quite responsive to commands without false touches or “empty” points during pressure, as often happens in 4 extreme angles.

The equipment remains the same, in terms of port equipment, we have an inevitable headphone jack, an HDMI input, 1 USB 2.0 port, and 2 USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A ports, and in order not to miss anything 1 USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-port. C. We also have an SD card slot, which is very convenient. The PC arrives Win11 Ready. And it integrates a Wi-Fi 6 AX201 Chip, the same takes care of managing the Bluetooth connection. The battery, consisting of 3 cells connected to each other, is instead of 42.2 Wh, not exactly a very high number.

We have a display Full HD IPS (1920×1080), and, unlike the older brother, we do not have the double memory system, but we find a single and capacious 512GB 2.5 ”SSD. On board we find an Intel processor, we have an i5-1135G7, and what was said in the previous review carried out on the older brother is valid. The Processor in question is from 2020, it represents one of the best processors of the Tiger Lake family, produced at 10nm, it is a 4 Core 8 Thread, with a maximum operating frequency of 4.20Ghz. A mobile processor that has always performed well, offers excellent performance, and is accompanied by Intel Iris Xᵉ graphics. Consumption is 28W maximum, with 8MB of Smart Cache. The PC in this case is accompanied by 8GB in DDR4 ram. RAMwhich have an operating frequency of 3.200MHz.

Daily use and conclusions | Medion Akoya E16401 review

The yield in everyday life is optimal, in the average, a pity only for the viewing angle which is not among the best. However, the display has a maximum brightness sufficient for outdoor use, also thanks to the opaque treatment it possesses. Overall this Medion Akoya E16401 is quite fast and allows the opening of various software in a short time, without slowing down. We have never encountered slowdowns and lag within navigation or use of the App. The battery has a mediocre duration, with multimedia use made by the Office package, use of streaming and mail services, it manages to do, with average brightness, about 3/4 hours. Convenient the ability to take advantage of fast charging, something that few have today. In fact, in just an hour he can return about a good 80% of charge.

The PC on the whole is able to guarantee fluidity in many daily operations, perfect for the student who is often away from home, but also for those who use it purely as a Home user. The processor i5-1135G7e its Intel Iris Xe graphics will allow you to use without problems the main software of common productive use, but also to enjoy HD movies. It is certainly not a suitable solution for professional editing, but it is not even in its objectives to be, this laptop is aimed at another type of user.

The dissipation system does not keep processor performance perfectly at bay, and with intense use we can often see overheating of the body, but it never results in significant reductions in performance. This PC can easily be found around 600 euros, and for this price range, it turns out to be a very valid alternative to take into consideration.
