Billets libellés Packard-Bell

Lucky owner of the EasyNote TR 85

Since the beginning of the week, I’m the lucky owner of the Packard Bell EasyNote TR-85 Laptop. This laptop, designed by the famous designers : Pininfarina. This laptop have the following specs :

  • Intel Core 2 Duo T6500
  • 4Go of RAM
  • GeForce G105M with 512Mo dedicated video memory + 1Go of system memory
  • 15.6″ 16:9 HD LED LCD with a native resolution of 1366×768
  • 500Go SATA HD
  • 5 in 1 card reader
  • DVD-Super Multi DL drive
  • 1.3M webcam
  • Windows Vista

I’ve done the minimal setup for Windows Vista and applied the most urgent updates. I don’t install yet some new application like Firefox, but at least, I crate the restorations DVD. I do allocate 200Go for Linux, and keep about 300Go for Vista in NTFS format. I did install Mandriva 2009.1, but as the vesa driver was used, I upgrade to Mandriva 2010.0 RC1. Not everything is working correctly however under Linux.

I’m very happy by this acquisition : the design is top, I do like the silver keyboard a lot, the screen is beautiful. My only complaint is the fact that Linux will not support it efficiently. I will do my best to allow my notebook to be correctly supported by the next Mandriva 2010.0 release.
