Packard Bell has unveiled a range of laptops that comes with a dedicated social networking key. Models in the EasyNote M laptop range offer one-click access to Facebook, YouTube and Flickr accounts.

You don't even need to open your web browser, simply press the social networking key to instantly post comments, play games, update your profiles, view or share photos and videos.

There are three laptops in the Packard Bell EasyNote M Series. The EasyNote NM is a 14in laptop, the EasyNote TM has a 15.6in display and the EasyNote LM is a 17.3in laptop.

All three laptops run Windows 7 Home Premium and are powered by Intel Core processors with up to 8GB of RAM. A choice of nVidia and ATI graphics processors, a DVD or Blu-ray drive and a hard disk of up to 640GB capacity are further options.

Other features include a multi-gesture touchpad and an HDMI port allowing content stored on the laptop to be enjoyed on a high-definition display. Packard Bell supplies the laptops with the full version of Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 photo-editing software. 

The Packard Bell EasyNote M series comes in silver, black, white or red and will be available this month.

Pricing and further spec details have yet to be released.
