Pocket-Lint: "Friends and fun in one place" is Packard Bell's appealing promise on the EasyNote TM. Incidentally, we're not writing trademark there, TM is the model code, though it is a little confusing. Anyway, the promise is to do with social networking. Like the earlier-reviewed LM model, this one has an extra key, just under the power button. It's of three smiley faces and pressing it takes you direct to your chosen social networks.
TechRadar - Acer will be moving away from the lower end of the laptop market, with its Packard Bell brand increasingly offering up the cheaper products.
Packard Bell was bought by Acer in 2008 but the decision has been made to make the computer manufacturer's road map clearer.
Engadget - Most laptops being updated to Intel's Ivy Bridge processors have come from international brands, so it may be some relief to European PC buyers that Acer's local Packard Bell badge has made the leap as well. The 15.6-inch EasyNote TV and 17.3-inch LV will each use the new 22-nanometer processors both to push performance that little bit farther as well as get a middling five hours of battery life. NVIDIA graphics in GeForce GT 620M and 630M flavors will spruce up the gaming side, however, and Packard Bell is delivering a 20 percent more responsive multi-touch trackpad, dedicated music / social keys and a bamboo-like lid pattern to add a little dose of style.
