Long battery life

In the measurement of battery life, the Akoya hit better than many more expensive competitor: In Internet and office -Work it held by a whopping seven and a half hours, during video playback it was six hours and 47 minutes. These are very good values. Also good: Instead of a lame disk that Medion has a nimble SSD (type: eMMCHynix HCG8e) on board. However, she has little memory 58.23 gigabytes. Anyone who wants to connect an external hard drive for memory expansion, must be content with lame USB 2.0 sockets.
