Packard Bell Dot SE-110UK


Very compact and easy to use

Very disappointed that on the information on your website it said it has a battery life of 3.5 hours but actually only has just over 2 hours battery life and we charged it correctly as stated in the book so unfortunately that is a big downside to the...

Packard Bell dot SE-710UK


Nice little computer - particuarly liked the free full version of photoshop on it...i use it purely for surfing the web, and was surprised by how easy it is to adjust to using a small keyboard etc...battery life is good, no complaints really

The Norton that comes pre-installed is a bit of a pain...and the built in speakers aren't partiuarly loud, but other than that!!

Packard Bell dot SE-710UK


Very light, 'easy to use around the house' laptop. Display is clear, and keyboard is almost normal size, which I find quite pleasant to use (keys don't need to be hit hard).

It benefits from an upgrade to 2GB memory which I did as soon as I received the laptop. This is hard to install, as there is no simple 'lid' to open on the bottom - the laptop needs to be taken apart to a large extend. This is disappointing - good...

This was ideal for for the purpose we purchased it for. Running company powerpoint presentations, yet not taking up much desktop space itself.

Slow CPU would frustrate if you expected it to perform as well as a "normal" laptop with a heavy duty workload.
