Medion prices up Windows 7 netbook

Similar-spec XP models rather cheaper

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Medion has unwrapped another 10in netbook in time for Christmas, this one preloaded with Windows 7 Starter Edition in place of XP.

Medion Akoya E1217

Medion's Akoya E1217: Windows 7 ups the price a fair bit

The Akoya E1217's hardware specs are classic netbook: 10in, 1024 x 600 display, 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, five-in-one memory card reader, and three USB, one VGA and one 10/100Mb/s Ethernet ports.

There's 250GB of on-board hard-disk storage and 1GB of memory. Wireless connectivity extends to 802.11n and Bluetooth 2.1.

The E1217 costs £300. If you're willing to trade Windows 7 for XP, and give up 90GB of storage and Bluetooth, the old E1210 is still available for £210 - or £189 if you only need 80GB of storage. ®
