Sainbury's shoppers will soon be able to get hold of two new laptops when they head off to buy their fruit and veg.

The 14- and 17-inch dual-core notebooks from Medion will be in store from later this month.

Medion's MD96624 and MD96625 are priced at £399.99 and £499.99 including VAT.

They both run Windows Vista Home Premium.

The MD96625 has an Intel Core 2 Duo T5450 1.66GHz dual-core processor, Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS graphics and 2GB RAM as well as a 17-inch widescreen display.

It also boasts high definition audio including a subwoofer and an HDMI port.

In addition, Intel PRO wireless connectivity and an integrated 1.3MP webcam are included as standard.

The second launch is the cheaper Medion MD96624, which features a dual-core AMD Turion 1.6GHz processor and Nvidia GeForce Go 6100 graphics.

With a 160GB hard drive, 2GB RAM and a 14.1-inch WXGA widescreen display, the MD96624 offers "versatile multimedia capabilities", adds Medion.
