Reviews for the Packard Bell EasyNote RS65-M-700

80% Packard Bell EasyNote RS65-M-700 review
Source: Techradar English
Well-specified and powerful with a great battery life, but awkward usability. Released at the end of 2008, Packard Bell's latest range includes the EasyNote RS65-M-700. It proves to be a compact and well-specified laptop with an affordable price tag and strong performance, and only its awkward usability lets it down slightly. Alongside the Rock, the slim 2.5kg chassis is more than portable. Although not quite ultraportable, it can easily be carried on long journeys. The excellent performance, mobility, screen and storage of the EasyNote make it ideal for buyers that need more power than a Netbook, but can't afford highpriced ultraportables. Just bear the limited usability in mind before you buy.

Some notebooks impress with performance, others with looks and style. The Packard Bell EasyNote RS65 manages to combine all these qualities to make an attractive laptop computer, and one that's imminently portable too at less than 2.4kg. Its sum is even greater than its quality parts.

Packard Bell might not be a name synonymous with finely-honed laptop design, but its laptop range has recently gone under the knife, and if recent efforts are anything to by that preconception is likely to change. Surprisingly nice design, but this laptop is surpassed on most fronts by the cheaper, more powerful competition.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470: Faster clocked HD 3450 and successor of the HD 2400 XT but with DirectX 10.1 and due to the new 55nm process, higher clockspeeds. Avivo HD video functions allow the decoding of HD videos.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.


T3200: Entry-level dual core processor with a slow performance due to the old Merom core and a small level 2 cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


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.
