Not a lightweight, but a notebook of this size is more of a desktop replacement and not really practical for everyday mobile use. On the positive side, due to its size, there was still room for a number pad.
The MD 98550 has an elegant high-gloss design with a brushed aluminum look.

The Medion Akoya E7216 (MD 98550) is equipped with a Intel Core i3-380M processor with Intel HD graphics  2,53 GHz, 3 MB Intel Smart Cache, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology and USB 3.0
So there is no graphics chip built in, instead the graphics technology integrated in the processor is used, which means that restrictions in current games or demanding video editing can be expected.

The expandable storage capacity is interesting.
This does not mean the 4 GB of RAM, which is sufficient, but a second hard drive bay in which a further 2,5 ”hard drive can be installed to expand the 640 GB of the existing hard drive.

A USB DVB-T TV tuner mini adapter including remote control - for mobile television is also included.

As operating system Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit employed.
