What's more, the 93% full-size Packard Bell FineTip keyboard and multi-gesture touchpad help you type comfortably, navigate, scroll and zoom without a mouse.
Choose from four fantastic new colourways; sesame black, rose pink, coconut white and strawberry red - whichever one better expresses your personality! With an eye for detail, the palm rest area echoes the colour of the front cover.
If you want a hard-working, lightweight netbook with uncompromising sophisticated style, the Packard Bell dot s is the right choice for you!

The built-in 1.3MP webcam, microphone and instant messaging software will mean you are able to enjoy high-resolution face-to-face chats with friends and family, wherever you are, courtesy of 3G(optional), Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth™ connectivity.
