Packard Bell has a spanking new netbook in the form of the Dot S4, where this 10.1″ device comes complete with the usual suspects where specifications are concerned – we’re talking about a 1,024 x 600 resolution display, an Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor, a choice between a 160GB or 250GB hard drive and the ability to hold up to 2GB RAM in order to make sure most programs run as smoothly as possible. The keyboard takes on a chiclet design that is the in thing for quite some time already, while a touchpad that supports gestures is thrown into the mix as well. You will be able to choose from a trio of bi-color options, not to mention a 3-cell and 6-cell (4900mAh) battery. Glad to see Packard Bell throw in Wi-Fi (b/g/n) connectivity to keep up with the times, with three USB 2.0 ports and Windows 7 Starter rounding off the list of features. We do wonder whether Acer and Gateway will be rolling out similarly specced netbooks under their respective brand names since Acer owns Packard Bell and Gateway, and it isn’t as if Acer did not pull the same trick in the past before.
