Default Re: Packard Bell?

Packard Bell was in the US for a period in the 1990s and probably 80s. They were one of many **** tastic cheap computer manufacturers whose products constantly broke down and were poorly designed. Since they were basically kicked out of the US marketplace all together and operated mostly in Europe now, where they're big mainly because of low prices, I don't think much has changed.
