Exactly a month after revealing that it is to release a range of laptops and netbooks designed for and signed by nine-times MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi Packard Bell has unveiled the range.

The range of Packard Bell products signed by Valentino Rossi has been designed by Aldo Drudi, Rossi's graphic designer. Drudi Performance is credited with hundreds of creations that have "amused and thrilled all the champion's fans and Moto GP enthusiasts", says Packard Bell.

The company describes the designs as forceful style, swift and brimming with vitality, "evoking the brightly coloured world of Valentino Rossi and the universe of Packard Bell users."

"Technology is now an integral part of all our lives. In my job, the need to continually compete against talented opponents pushes me to improve and, without a doubt, technology was a substantial factor in all the results I have achieved and laurels I have collected. On the job and at home, a computer is something we can no longer do without," said Rossi.

"We are absolutely convinced that users are always seeking an affinity that links the choice of a product to their personal aspirations, to what they want to be and the way they are perceived," commented Gianpiero Morbello, Acer Group Vice President of Marketing & Brand.

"What they buy is above all the idea that rotates around the product, conjured up by the brand and the visual details in which they manage to identify themselves.

"The ‘Valentino Rossi brand' has now attained such an international fame that is immediately recognized by most people. As far as we are concerned, being able to offer our customers the opportunity to experience the ‘Valentino dream' through Packard Bell products is extremely rewarding for us, making us very proud."

The Packard Bell laptops and netbooks will sport the signature of Valentino Rossi on the shell, as well as the number 46, or perhaps the Sun & Moon that distinguish the champion's helmet, or even his nickname ‘The Doctor'.
