Packard Bell, one of the leading technology brands in Europe, today announces the revamping of its highly popular iPower X series.
The new Packard Bell iPower X3.0 meets the requirements of enthusiasts and hobbyist PC gamers for whom design is one of the top selection criteria along with high-level performance. With this ultimate sharp and magnificent chassis packing power, smart features and usability, users will undoubtedly enjoy multi-tasking and PC gaming as never before.
Start up your PC, pushing the ignition button, and drive it easily thanks to the dashboard controls. The Packard Bell iPower X3.0 has a stunning street racer-inspired design. The outer rim of the power button is the chassis lighting control dial. The pure clear-cut shapes of its chassis are smoothed by curved angles. All suave red lighting effects emphasize the cutting-edge design and the character expected of a HD performer. The graffiti-like logo, inspired by street art, gives a final unique touch.
The Packard Bell iPower X3.0 is equipped with front-mounted buttons and ports to easily access and use key features. All the most important I/O ports and key function buttons (including PhotoFrame and MyBackUp) are slanted toward you like a race car control panel. Add the top storage tray providing 2 additional USB ports plus ample space for cameras, smart phones, mp3 players, etc. and all connections to peripheral devices are extremely fast and simple.
Cable management is also enhanced by front wire passage and a devoted integrated rear compartment at the top of the chassis provides the user with an area to store and hide excess wires.
Boasting up to two 1.5 TB hard disc drives, Packard Bell iPower X3.0 users will have plenty of room for photos, movies, music libraries and more. A convenient access door on the front of the PC conceals two expansion external hard drive bays, and glides down effortlessly with a slight push on the front latch.
Eject buttons for the optical disk drives are also conveniently and seamlessly integrated into the front sides of the PC.
A robust handle also allows transport.
