MEDION Akoya S17405 and E16401: all the power you need in a laptop PC

In the new MEDION Akoya S17405 and MEDION E16401, thanks to the recent Intel processors and the integrated Iris Xe graphics, they can withstand even quite demanding workloads. Let’s take a closer look at them

In our previous article we looked at some low-end laptop PCs that may be suitable for elementary, middle and even high school students in certain cases. This time we will present instead of machines suitable for those looking for a little something more.

The most advanced user of a laptop PC usually looks for a PC that is powerful enough to give that extra sprint when required, but at the same time that is light and manageable. The laptops that we will present to you shortly are aimed at those people who have to run gods specialized programs – for example those for CAD drawing – which are usually not only not found in the cloud, but require a little more power. So today we are talking about MEDION Akoya S17405 and MEDION E16401.

MEDION Akoya S17405: all the power of the 11th generation Intel processors

We can say that under the hood of MEDION Akoya S17405 lies one of the best 11th generation Intel processors. Powerful, consumes little and has excellent integrated graphics. Let’s talk about Intel Core i5-1135G7a little guy who consumes only 28 W peak, but which boasts 4 cores and 8 threads with frequencies up to 4.20 GHz. The integrated graphics part instead contains 80 EUs that run at the maximum frequency of 1.30 GHz.

It does not end here. We also have 8 GB of DDR4 RAM and 512 GB of SSD for archiving. Connectivity is very modern thanks to Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1. We also find 1x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C with DisplayPort function, 2x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A, 1x USB 2.0, 1x HDMI 2.0 output, 1x SD card reader and headphone jack. In short, what do you want more? You can pretty much attach anything to it!

Working onlarge 17-inch display it will not be a problem, also helped by the backlit keyboard. Finally, there is a webcam with integrated microphones for videocalls.

MEDION E16401: a design masterpiece

If previously we focused on the technical specifications, in this case we want to focus on the design of this product because it really deserves it. Let’s start from the excellent 16.1 inch IPS LCD display with resolution 1920 x 1080 pixels e 100% coverage of the sRGB space. The 16-inch cut, with reduced bezels as in the case of MEDION E16401, is probably one of the best because it allows you to work comfortably, without however increasing the size of the PC too much.

The body of the laptop is made of aluminum. In addition to giving resistance to wear and mechanical stress, it must be said that the metal finish is always highly appreciated for its elegance. With this laptop PC you will also make a good impression in the eyes of others. The specifications are almost unchanged from what was said above. We could define them as two twin notebooks these MEDIONs.

What can we do with these laptops?

As anticipated at the beginning, these machines should be dedicated to people who need to run a little more specialized applications or programs and that maybe require a little more power. For example let’s talk about photo editing, CAD drawing, programming, etc … For example, we address creatives, students of technical and scientific subjects. If, on the other hand, you have to use only Word or little else, we advise you to turn to other proposals.

So we have seen that we can use MEDION Akoya S17405 and MEDION E16401 in different professional and educational fields. However, can we also have fun and recreation? Obviously there are no problems a see movies and TV series thanks to the excellent displays and the Dolby Audio certified sound system. But we can also play. Yes, thanks to Intel Iris Xe graphics, we can play even fairly recent and demanding games like Read Dead Redemption 2. Obviously we will have to lower the resolution to 720p and the details to medium-low values ​​depending on the game, but we will manage to stay above 30 fps on almost all games.

Which one to choose between the two?

There is obviously no right answer. It really depends on you and your needs. However, here are some practical tips. MEDION E16401 it is certainly more manageable because it is more compact. If you travel often or work perhaps by train and plane, go with him. In addition, the great display makes it more suitable for creatives. MEDION Akoya S17405 it’s more of a desk model with its huge screen. If you want a laptop to be used primarily at home or in the office for study, work and leisure, choose it. Especially if you don’t have a second monitor to support it. For all the details on these products, we refer you to the official MEDION website.
