    They still make computers. They just don't sell them here.

    Packard Smell. hehe. Clever.



    It does look retro, tho. That's not necessarily bad in many cases. In this one, it is.

    Have a look at Packard Bell's latest "innovations"...

    Outstanding by design



    Customers know how to tell the difference between real innovation and hype. With their unique combination of features and design, Packard Bell desktops are the ideal choice.



    The white ixtreme models look very novel. And it's very clever to come up with product names starting with an i. No-one has done that before!

    Yes the "real innovation" part sounds interesting. I want to know more about this. In fact I just wrote them:

    Hi Packard Bell.



    I have a question about something I read at the site for your interesting i-media and i-xtreme computers (http://www.packardbell.co.uk/products/node1595.asp).



    You write "Customers know how to tell the difference between real innovation and hype. With their unique combination of features and design, Packard Bell desktops are the ideal choice."



    My question is what the "real innovations" that these computers have? It sounds interesting but I cannot find examples on the site.



    I´m looking forward to your answer.



    Kind regards,



    Anders Jakobsen

    Don't forget it's not only innovative to use the prefix "i-Something" it's also innovative to use the suffix "-Xtreme" or "Extreme". Packard Bell makes Gateway look like Apple.

    By the way, is Gateway still using that cow theme? I have no idea since I don't live in USA... If you're comparing Packard Bell "iSuXtreme" to Cow-Gateway and the latter is a clear winner in terms of style, that explains a lot.

    Looks like one of their old calculators from the 60's! I knew it had to have more features than just numbers! Now all I have to do is find the headphone jack...
