Reviews for the Packard Bell EasyNote NX69-HR-127GE
Strong, cheap, small. High multimedia performance in a small case - plus looks for stylish boasting. The manufacturer has set up a remarkably high-end almost-subnotebook for less than 700€.
In benchmarks the performance of the NX69 matched that of many more expensive Core i7-powered machines, and it’s easily capable of running the latest games. All of which means this notebook can handle office tasks such as spreadsheets or presentations with aplomb. In short, the Packard Bell NX69 is one of the best mid-range notebooks we have tested.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
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.
