Perfect for use at home or on the go, the MEDION AKOYA P6624 will be available exclusively in Sainsbury’s stores nationwide or online from sainsburys.co.uk from 23rd December.

The MEDION AKOYA P6624 features the latest 2010 Intel Core i5 processor with new Intel Turbo Boost technology, which automatically distributes processing power to where it is needed most making it more efficient and helping to boost performance. It easily copes with demanding tasks such as editing HD videos or photos and playing games. It also includes Intel’s efficient Hyper-Threading technology, featuring four-way multi-task processing that allows each core of the processor to work on two tasks at the same time. This ensures that the MEDION AKOYA P6624 will not slow down regardless of how many applications are open, making it ideal for smart multitasking.

Graphics are supplied by an NVIDIA GeForce GT425M DirectX 11 graphics with 1024MB of dedicated RAM. Its Optimus technology switches between the more powerful NVIDIA graphics and energy saving Intel solution to preserve the 8-cell high performance Li-Ion battery. The laptop’s Dolby Advanced Audio technology delivers a stunning listening experience from any pair of speakers or headphones, and its home entertainment credentials are further strengthened with the inclusion of a 15.6” widescreen LED-backlit display with HD resolution that provides a sensational moving watching experience in 16:9 cinema format.

The notebook’s spacious 640GB hard drive can comfortably hold libraries of images, music and video, while still having space spare for essential software applications. An integrated 1.3 MP webcam and microphone let users capture photos and video or make video calls with ease.

The MEDION AKOYA P6624 boasts comprehensive connectivity options including USB 3.0, which enable much faster data transfer speeds to and from connected computer peripherals. A multi-format memory card reader for SD, SDHC, MMC, MS and MS Pro cards makes uploading photos and videos quick and easy while a DVD/CD burner with DVD-RAM and Dual Layer support means that users can burn and enjoy the latest movies. The digital HDMI out port offers brilliant image reproduction on a large HD flat screen TV. MEDION’s AKOYA P6624 also benefits from the latest high speed wireless connectivity with 802.11n standard technology, enabling large amounts of data to be transferred quickly and reliably.
