Acer subsidiary Packard Bell is showing a new thin and light laptop with an Intel CULV processor at IFA in Berlin this week. It’s called the Packard Bell Dot M/U, and if it looks familiar, that’s because it’s virtually the same as the Acer Aspire 1410/Acer Aspire Timeline 1810T.
The Packard Bell Dot M/U ships with Windows Vista Home Premium, a 6 cell, 6 hour battery, and 2GB of RAM, and a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500 processor and integrated GMA 4500 HD graphics. It has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display. One thing that differentiates it from the Acer Aspire 1410 available in the US is the fact that the Dot M/U has a 320GB hard drive while the US version has a 250GB hard drive. But otherwise they’re pretty much the same.
You can find more details at Packard Bell’s Swedish site. French site Blogeee points out that the laptop is available for order in other parts of Europe as well.
In Sweden the laptop is selling for about 5,990 kroner, or about $830 dollars. That’s almost twice as much as it costs in the US. It’s available for about 449 Euros, or $641 US in France.
