Packard Bell has been on something of a run recently, launching a number of middle-range, but pretty nice looking machines (probably as they're now a subsidiary of Acer, they can focus on the looks for their target market).
Well, now they've just announced the new EasyNote LS, a 17.3" multimedia laptop designed to enjoy entertainment whether as a desktop-replacement or (just) on the go, with a 1600x1900 resolution display, as well as a full copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 seemingly pre-installed.
They've also thrown in up to 1.5TB of storage, as well as a USB 3.0 port for fast data transfer, a selection of processors from Intel's 2nd generation Core line-up, as well as a range of graphics solutions going up to an AMD HD 6650M with 2GB memory.
There's also a "Social Networks Key" on the chiclet-style keyboard, which adds an obligatory social media element into the laptop, something which most manufacturers are adding in, but we can't see it being that useful.
It'll be available across Europe from May, starting at €599, in red, black or white.
