The Packard Bell Butterfly Touch is an 11.6-inch touchscreen convertible tablet notebook.
If you take a close look at the design and specifications of the Packard Bell Butterfly Touch, you will notice it is very similar to the Acer Aspire 1820PTZ. This is because it is essentially the 1820PTZ re-branded to Packard Bell. This isn’t too unexpected as Packard Bell are owned by Acer.
Along with the 11.6-inch touchscreen display which has a 1366 x 768 resolution, the Butterfly Touch has some nice specifications such as the dual core Intel Pentium SU4100 1.3GHz CPU, 2GB of RAM, and a 320GB hard drive. It also features Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics and comes with Windows 7 Home Premium.
It is interesting to note that the quoted weight for the Butterfly Touch is 1.65Kg, while the near identical Acer Aspire 1820PTZ is quoted at 1.4Kg. This might simply be due to the different weighing procedures, such as including the weight of the power brick.
We expect the Packard Bell Butterfly Touch will be available across Europe shortly. Blogeee (French) have already reported that it’s now listed in stock at a French store for €499.
