    Packard Bell's dot a will reach stores in "summer 2010" priced from £399, putting it right up against the ASUS's Eee PC 1201N. Question is; dual-core Athlon and Radeon HD graphics or dual-core Atom and NVIDIA ION graphics?
    Looking at the spec, how is this different from last year's Acer Ferrari One netbook? The only difference I see, is the GPU has been clocked down a bit and the 256mb discrete gfx memory has been removed - but didn't the Acer Ferrari also cost around £400?

    Am I missing something?

    Newer processors based on Phenom II rather than Athlon 64, newer chipset (880G vs 780G), and afaik the Acer Ferrari One didn't have discreet graphics or dedicated graphics ram (unless I've missed a particular revision of it). The new platform has a wider range of CPU options (single and dual cores), and noticably better battery life.
