You wouldn't know it (nor would you probably want to), but (in)famous PC manufacturer Packard Bell
is still chugging along making all manner of consumer computing devices over yonder in Euro-land; as of today, their portfolio now includes an industry first for a computer: a Skype
brand. That's right, we're talking about the spankin' new Packard Bell EasyNote Skype Edition. It probably won't be any different from the rest of Bell's run-of-the-mill laptops, but it apparently will feature a 14-inch widescreen display and invariably have some kind of Skype branding
. Oh, and we can postulate that it'll feature a sound card -- probably with in and output ports, 1/8th-inch -- and USB ports; that's safe to assume, right?
