Reviews for the Packard Bell EasyNote MB89
Available at PC World shops and online, the Packard Bell Limited Edition Easynote 17in costs £700, but we'd resist buying it in favour of a desktop PC that might be a little bigger but will certainly offer better features for the price. For £700 this notebook doesn’t do much to excite. The 17in screen may seem impressive but its performance lets this notebook down.

Packard Bell's Limited Edition EasyNote MB88 P-003, by comparison, looks dainty and, indeed, weighs a fairly modest 2.6kg. The Packard Bell EasyNote MB88 P-003 Limited Edition is the middle one of the three-strong Limited Edition range and has a ‘sunny' orange accent running along the groove of the case exterior and on either side of the main unit. The Packard Bell EasyNote MB88 P-003 Limited Edition, then, is a solid Vista Home Premium laptop that is certainly worthy of consideration.

NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT: The NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT is the DirectX 10 capable successor of the GeForce Go 7600 GT GPU for laptops. Depending on the used graphic memory and the clock speed, the performance is between the 7600 GT and 7900 GS video card.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Packard Bell: Packard Bell is a subsidiary of Taiwan-based Acer. It is a name used by two different consumer electronics companies. The first was an American radio manufacturer founded in 1926, that later became a defense contractor and manufacturer of other consumer electronics, such as television sets. Teledyne acquired the business in 1978. In 1986, investors bought the name for a newly formed personal computer manufacturer. Originally the company produced discount computers in the US, later computers were produced for the European market. NEC took it over in the late 1990s. Acer acquired it in 2008. In spite of the similarity of their names, there has never been any corporate connection between the original or later Packard Bell and Hewlett Packard, or Bell System. Packard Bell is an international notebook manufacturer. Many years, the company focussed ruggedized laptops.
