Packard Bell debuts the EasyNote V Series in Europe
Acer’s European subsidiary Packard Bell has reportedly introduced two new laptops. According to the maker, the portable PCs, dubbed EasyNote LV and EasyNote TV, will be available on the Old Continent in June of this year and will have a starting price of €399 and €499, respectively.
The Dutch manufacturer has announced in a press release that the 15.6-inch TV model will be powered by a second generation Intel processor, whereas the larger 17.3-inch EasyNote LV laptop will sport a 22nm Ivy Bridge chip. Moreover, the first will apparently be equipped with an HD (1366-by-768 pixels) widescreen display and NVIDIA GeForce GT620M graphics card (Fermi architecture; 1GB VRAM), whereas the latter delivers an LED-backlit 16:9 panel of HD+ (1600-by-900 pixels) resolution and packs a higher-end NVIDIA GeForce GT630M GPU.
Reportedly, users will be further provided with up to 2TB of storage space, a couple of USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI output for watching HD content on an external HDTV, a battery pack that lasts up to 5 hours (on both models) and a “stunning” bamboo weave design (on the EasyNote TV).
There is still no word on a US release; however, it is possible to see the two notebooks Stateside in the near future under the Gateway brand (which is also a subsidiary of Acer).
