New PC comes packed with USB 3, 3D capability, Blu-ray and “brilliant flexibility”.

Press release:
The brand new Packard Bell ixtreme is a striking addition to the PB line up with its high-end glowing curves and several unique design elements.
It makes the overall computing experience more convenient and the most intuitive ever. Robust features, hefty amounts of memory and spacious hard drives provide unprecedented flexibility for handling the hottest new digital media.

Its elegant line is characterized by soft curves and a glossy black finish. A glowing white internal light subtly enhances the depth of the curves and illuminates the PB logo on the front of the chassis. This eye-catching light effect can be easily activated or deactivated with a button click.

Stylish and intuitive, Packard Bell ixtreme perfectly suits your way of life.
The new Packard Bell ixtreme is perfect for sharing contents and enjoying your digital life, intuitively.

Enjoy the increasingly large amounts of family and friends’ pictures at once: the Packard Bell ixtreme’s “digital photo frame” button delivers a slide show of your preferred photos with a single touch.

You can easily share your favourite photos and videos on your social networks through CyberLink MediaShow 5 software. Tagging your friends has never been so simple; you can also group pictures by faces and move face tags smoothly among different PCs.
Complete photo and video editing is made easy through Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 (full version).

Additionally, an auto-backup button conveniently located on top of the chassis helps you to keep any precious file safe.
The PB Software Suite, pre-installed on the Packard Bell ixtreme, allows different kinds of personal data backup, in addition to the Auto Backup for immediate or scheduled data saving of files and folders.

To make transferring photos and other data to the PC easy, Packard Bell included a handy “device deck” on the Packard Bell ixtreme. This small recessed area on top of the chassis is perfect to set a camera, MP3 player or camcorder while connecting to USB ports and downloading media. Cables can be reeled in and covered under a lid on the top rear of the machine, for a neat appearance.

Easy access front side ports (USB 2.0, headphone and microphone jacks, multi-in-1 card reader) allow immersive HD entertainment and convenient media sharing.

Simply brilliant
When it comes to processing power, Packard Bell ixtreme comes with the 2nd generation Intel Core processor family with Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology. You can experience faster and smarter performance for HD entertainment and multitasking.
Packard Bell ixtreme also features the latest processors from AMD.

Enjoy out-of-screen 3D effects, Packard Bell ixtreme is equipped with the new generation NVIDIA GeForce GT400 series graphics card and a HDMI 1.4 port or the new generation AMD Radeon HD 6000 series graphics card.

The new Packard Bell ixtreme is also perfect to read or burn any DVD, or to watch a Blu-ray film. If you want to back-up or share your files up to 10 times faster than before, you can select a model featuring two USB3.0 ports .

The large storage capacity of the Packard Bell ixtreme gives you unlimited room for your movies, pictures, music and all files. Up to three hard drives with an optional Easy-Swap expansion bay can host up to 6TB of data.
