PACKARD BELL iMedia S 2984 Desktop PC

 

Fast, straightforward machine for ordinary, non graphics-intense work.

Only 4 USB connections; 5 or 6 would be better

PACKARD BELL iMedia S 2984 Desktop PC

 

The set up instructions were very vague for a novice to follow,eg where to connect cables, also on and off switches were not obvious to find. I persevered and eventually set it up.

Would of been easy to set up if we had known that we did not need all the leads in the bundle.

Far too many leads which you do not need
