Reviews for the Packard Bell Easynote TN65
An affordable widescreen media centre, but performance fails to impress. Finally, storage matches the more expensive laptops around. The 250GB hard drive provides ample space for large collections of files, while the DVD rewriter and 3-in-1 media card reader let you save and share files, using both optical discs and flash memory storage cards. While the limited mobility and performance of the Packard Bell is disappointing, its low price and stunning screen make it great for basic home entertainment. As long as the slightly awkward usability doesn't put you off, the TN65 is worth a look.

Packard Bell is not afraid to step out from the crowd in the design and styling of its laptop range - and the widescreen TN65-T-440 notebook is no exception. From the outside with the lid closed, the top takes a smart but industrial tablet-embossed pattern, with sturdy-looking metal hinges to support the widescreen 15.5in display. There's a definite air of masculine tech about the Packard Bell EasyNote TN65. Like the Packard Bell EasyNote RS65 we tested last month, the Packard Bell EasyNote TN65-T-440 is a stylish and well designed laptop – excepting the badly executed buttons that will make relaxed operation tricky for some users. But it’s cool and quiet, weighs less than 2.8kg and has a true 16:9 display that will make video look great. And at under £450, it’s competitively priced too.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3430: Entry level low end dedicated graphics adapter with slower clock rates than the HD 3450.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these 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.
T5800: Entry level dual core processor based on the Merom core without Virtualization support and a low maximum temperature.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
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.
