Is the Aldi Medion Akoya HD the best Aldi laptop of 2009?

With an Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 processor running at 2.0 GHz with a 2 MB L2 cache and 800 MHz FSB, the Aldi Medion Akoya HD is certainly a machine with more than enough about it for even the most intensive applications.

Its 512 MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS Direct X 10 compatible graphics card with GDDR 2 memory supports resolutions up to a maximum of 1440 x 900 pixels on the 17 inch WXGA 16:10 ratio widescreen display, which makes it suitable for most video games should that be a concern for you.

Alongside the more than ample 4 GB of DDR2 SDRam, it also boasts a 320 GB hard drive as standard meaning that you'll have plenty of room for the latest games, movies and applications without having to worry about things like deleting your music or photo collection in order to save space, which is always a bonus when it comes to portable devices such as this.

If you're looking to stay connected to the world, the Akoya offers an 802.11 b/g/draft n Wireless LAN interface with speeds of up to 300Mbit per second possible under optimum conditions (however this greatly depends on the quality of your internet connection, so the likelihood is that you won't attain anything close to those figures).

For the movie buffs among you, this laptop goes above and beyond the call of duty thanks to its integrated BlurRay player - meaning that you'll be able to watch the latest movies in stunning high definition. Even better, you'll be able to show them on your big screen HDTV thanks to the laptop's integrated HDMI compatibility.

With a package rounded up by excellent build quality and comparably strong battery of 5-6 hours, we have no doubt that the Medion Akoya HD is the best Aldi laptop of 2009, by quite a distance.
