Packard Bell readies latest EasyNote

Sexy, stylish and slim, it's claimed

High performance access to file storage

Packard Bell has launched another EasyNote notebook, which this time around is targeted at users with a weakness for phrases like “limited edition,” “slim” and “stylish”.

The 12in EasyNote BG48 has a stylish “glossy white and aluminium” colour scheme, topped off with a “chocolate edge trim”. PB claimed it has paid attention to even the smallest details on the BG48, resulting in “luminous capacitive buttons” around the PC’s white touchpad.

Weighing in at 1.6kg, the machine has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and integrated Intel graphics under its hood - it's based on the Centrino 2 platform. Wi-Fi is supported and it also has an Ethernet port.

PB will also bundle a “software offer” with the machine that includes a trial version of Norton Internet Security and a full version of Adobe Photoshop Elements 6. Users can also pick from “one or more” film titles, including Wall E and Need for Speed.

The EasyNote BG48 is expected to appear in stores this month for around €600 (£506/$751). It's labelled as limited edition, so you may have to get down the shops quickly.
