Packard Bell’s 11.6-inch dot m/a now shipping in UK

July 30, 2009 at 2:42 pm

Packard Bell dot m/aThe Packard Bell dot m/a is the European version of the Gateway LT3100 (LT3103u) that was released a month back in the US. Both companies are owned by Acer in case you were wondering. It seems that the 11.6-inch AMD-powered netbook is now available to buy from Tesco Direct for £349.00.

Packard Bell products have traditionally sold through the DSGI chains in the UK (Dixons, Currys and PC World), however it seems that under Acer’s guidance they will be increasing their distribution channels. As a result, the dot m/a will shortly be offered by Comet and Amazon as well.

The Packard Bell dot m/a is an 11.6-inch netbook that comes with a high-resolution (1366 x 768) display and is powered by an AMD Athlon 64 L110 processor and comes with the ATI Radeon X1270 graphics chipset. It uses Vista Home Basic and also has three USB ports, a multi-touch touchpad and a 3-cell battery that should be good for 4 hours of battery life.

In related news, Computer Shopper got hold of a pre-production sample and posted their initial impressions. Whilst they liked the high-resolution (1366x x 768) display and useful software bundles, they weren’t too keen on the build quality, stiff keyboard and short battery life.

Via Hexus.

    Trying to decide between this and a Medion which has a sempron processor at the moment.

    Spencer, don’t get either. I went to Amazon on Friday and bought a Samsung NC10. Slightly smaller screen, but comes with a 6 cell battery (up to 6 hours life), built in bluetooth among all the standard stuff. After spending a whole day researching netbooks, it came down to a shortlist of 3: MSI Wind, Eee PC 1000HE and the Samsung NC10 – and I went for the Samsung as when I tried them in PC World earlier in the day, the Samsung felt like it had the best build quality.

    Whatever you get though, I’m sure it’ll be a good machine.
