Medion's Akoya Mini E1210 budget ultraportable had little to differentiate it from the rest of the crowded market on announcement, but perhaps some unboxing photos will make the little laptop more appealing.  MSI-Wind.de have just brought one home, and they'll be the ideal people to confirm whether, as predicted, the E1210 is really just an MSI Wind in a different chassis.

PC manufacturer Medion have taken a look at the ultraportable Eee-rival market and decided there's no way it's saturated enough; there's plenty of room for their Akoya Mini E1210, an HP Mini-Note lookalike only bearing a 10-inch display rather than the HP's 8.9 LCD.  Powered by Intel's new Atom ultra-efficient mobile processor, the usual Linux OS is present and a traditional 1.8-inch hard-drive of as-yet unspecified capacity.  1GB of RAM and two USB ports are pretty much par for the budget-ultraportable course.

It's been a week of ultraportables, frankly, with enough budget laptops vying for the Eee's crown to make the whole market more than a little confusing.  Medion announced their Akoya E1210 while 3K unveiled their own alternative; meanwhile, MSI finally released some decent photos of the Wind.  Thankfully there's now a comprehensive list of all the options available, meaning attention has turned from cataloguing to pondering whether Palm will join the fray with a re-worked version of the Foleo companion.  Stranger things (like the first Foleo, you could say) have happened.
