Packard Bell, which is owned by Acer, is now firmly anchored as an entry-level consumer brand and Tesco is selling (via its outlet on eBay) what looks to be the cheapest dual-core laptop, one bearing the PB badge.
The TS45-HR-111UK comes only in pink and has a keyboard with island style keys, a 15.6in LED display with a 1,366 x 768 pixels display and is powered by Windows 7 Home Premium.
Other features include a dual-core Intel Celeron processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard disk drive, a DVD writer, a card reader, three USB ports, VGA and HDMI, Wi-Fi, a webcam and up to four hours battery life.
The device is refurbished but comes with a full one-year warranty. PB has also included a dedicated one-touch key that enables users to access social networking websites like Twitter, Facebook and Flickr almost instantaneously.
