The new Packard Bell Dot M/U has an interesting name, I don’t think I have ever seen a model name with the forward slash in it. Anyhow, before we get too far, I would like to point out that the Packard Bell Dot M/U is in fact a re-brand of the popular Acer Aspire 1410 (Acer Aspire Timeline 1810T).
I think that the Packard Bell M/U will only be available in Europe, so if your in the U.S and want this netbook, simply look for the Acer 1410!
Packard Bell are calling the Dot M/U the “first netbook with the performance of a notebook”. This statement quite accurate, and the Dot M/U is certainly more powerful than most netbooks on the market, while also maintaining it’s portability and long battery life.
It’s powered by an Intel ULV (ultra-low voltage) processor (1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500 processor), integrated GMA 4500 HD graphics, up to 4GB of RAM and 500GB hard drive, and has a 6-cell, 6-8 hour battery.
It also features a 11.6-inch LCD with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, 5-in-1 card reader, WiFi, webcam, HDMI output, multi-gesture touchpad and Dolby technology.
The Packard Bell Dot M/U will be available with two color options, “Cherry Red” and “NightSky Black”. It has also been reported that the M/U will be offered with an optional 3G modem, so it might be offered by mobile operators.
