Packard Bell Dot sr UK/031 ... size makes it perfect for consuming content on the go. A notebook doesn't slide easily into a handbag, but the dot does. A parent would think twice about entrusting their child with the family notebook for a school trip, but the dot would be the perfect companion. The Packard Bell notebook is designed for situations like these. If the notebook is the main family car, then the dot is a scooter. It is the ideal additional PC/Internet access point for the whole family everywhere.
Designed to be a discreet and practical companion, the dot has a slim case that fits neatly into a shoulder bag, while the 10.1-inch 1024 x 600-resolution display that is easy going on the eyes. It's hard to type messenger conversations on a smart phone, but not on the dot. The keyboard is large enough for children and adults.
The Intel Atom processor makes performance zippy and battery life long. There's even room for an extra 6-cell battery for heavy-duty use. The large capacity hard drive, 3 USB ports and 5-in-1 card reader make it perfect for off-loading a digital camera, while the display is perfect for reviewing and sharing photos with others.

I bought this netbook because I was looking for a travel companion. Small and of relatively good spec I thought it would do the trick. I have a problem with tablets and a particular software I use, tablets simply don't support it. Because this unit still works like a PC (in that it has windows) it did the trick for this particular requirement. So about the product: Build - its ok...the joints of the screen seem a little flimsy I worry that my heavy handedness will one day break it, but to press they have lasted! The unit other than this is sturdy, very little flex in the chassis. The keyboard is a mini type but is tactile, keys showing ... Read the complete review

I only use a computer when I really have to and hate over complicated computers and laptops, so this was a perfect choice for me. It doesnt have a very big memory compared to other larger laptops so if you're looking for somewhere to store lots of files then I recommend you buy an external hard drive or a normal sized laptop. I mainly use this laptop for university to work so generally only keep a few essays on here at a time so I have not found this to be a problem. I have found that when I have a few tabs open at a time, the internet is not as fast as when I am only trying to view one web page at a time. This is paticularly a problem when I am trying to ...

Since there release i have not really been a big fan of netbooks, i was a bit skeptical as to me they just seemed like a smaller lower specification version of laptop, which when simply looked at, they are. However this netbook i personally found performed well in comparison to what i expected, initial thoughts were that Windows 7 on such a low specced device could only be a stupid idea, however it's utilised quite well and runs smoothly. The windows 7 helps navigate the system easily and smoothly. The netbook itself boasts all the qualities you'd expect anyway for a basic laptop but in half the size, the ridiculously light weight and compactness of the device makes it a Read the complete review

The netbook is flawed in many ways, but that is only when comparing it to a laptop or desktop equivalent. It won't play HD video, it won't render images or movies at any speed, and it won't be of any use for intensive tasks. BUT you don't buy a netbook for that sort of thing, and I can honestly say that my little red Dot S has performed just how I would have wanted it too, and I cannot complain about its reliability and quality when it has been needed. The windows 7 starter edition installed on the computer is limited, you can't even change the pre-installed default background, but it does the job. It has the useful user interface improvements without taking ... Read the complete review
