Medion,
maker of cheap notebooks sold mainly in German supermarkets, has come up with an 11.6-inch AMD-based netbook, if you can call it that as AMD believes netbooks don't exist.

The Medion Akoya E1311 is based on AMD's Neo platform, it's powered by a 1.4GHz Sempron U210, has Radeon X1250 graphics with HDMI out, 1GB of memory and 160GB of storage. Connectivity isn't an issue with draft-n wireless and Bluetooth.

It's interesting to see more and more vendors opt for AMD's Neo platform, which is a tad cheaper than Intel's ULV parts, but it offers inferior battery life.

The E1311 is available in black or white, and its MSRP is €429, but we have a feeling it will sell for under €399 sooner rather than later.
