Medion has launched the Akoya P6612 - a 16in widescreen laptop powered by a 2GHz Intel Centrino 2 Duo P7350 processor.

Graphics duties on the Akoya P6612 are handled by an nVidia GeForce 9600M GS DirectX 10 video card with 256MB GDDR3 memory. The entertainment-centric laptop also has an integrated DVB-T Freeview TV tuner with remote control and the matte anti-glare 16in widescreen display is capable of handling HD content. It comes with a multi-format DVD/CD burner and a HDMI port so it can be attached to a high-definition TV.
