valentino rossi

Sure, it’s what’s on the inside that really counts. But if you’r the superficial type that likes to judge a netbook by its cover, Packard Bell’s got a real looker for you. Notebook Italia dug up some photos of a new Packard Bell Valentino Rossi edition of the company’s dot notebook.

Rossi, in case you don’t follow Italian motorcycle racing, is… an Italian motorcycle racer. The design’s pretty slick, and succeeds at making this one of the few designer edition notebooks I’ve seen that actually could have some unisex appeal.

Unfortunately there are pretty much no details on the specs. The notebook does look like a dressed-up version of the Packard Bell Dot M/U, which in turn is a rebranded version of the Acer Aspire 1410. So I’m guessing you get an Intel CULV processor, GMA 4500MHD graphics, and a reasonable amount of memory and hard drive space as well as a 11.6″ display. But that’s just a guess.

Hit up Notebook Italia for more images.

  1. Yao Ming, in case you don’t follow Chinese basketball, is a Chinese basketball player.

  2. That’s all you have to say about Rossi? First of all, he races in MotoGP, which is a worldwide series, not an Italian racing series and second of all he’s arguably the best motorcycle racer in the history of the sport, with 9 titles. Rossi is also one of the greatest showmen across all sports when it comes to flair, celebrations, and attitude. Give the man his credit!

    1. Umm, ok. But this is a netbook site, not so much a motor racing one. He included a link didn’t he?

    2. Right behind Ago and (maybe) Hailwood. But certainly the best who is still actively participating in the sport!

      (maybe the editors should read their links before referring to them?)

        1. Wow. I’m not sure how you knew this was me, ranking motorcycling and volleyball at the top of my priorities list (behind my cats, of course). Which Rob is this who I probably know?

          Hailwood. Mike the Bike.
