Manufacturer's Description

Capable and compact, the Packard Bell iMedia S2870 Desktop PC is the perfect family computer for any household.

Intuitive Windows
The iMedia S2870 comes preinstalled with the simple yet expressive Windows 8 operating system. Packed full of exciting apps, it gives you the information that’s important to you whenever you need it.

With Live Tiles, your applications update in real time, so whether you need up the minute social media updates or an integrated email client, there’s an app to keep you current in Windows 8.

Windows 8 has been specially designed to be less demanding on your computer’s performance, so not only will it load from sleep quicker, it helps your computer run more efficiently too.

Everyday performance
From browsing the web to typing documents, you can expect quick, reliable performance courtesy of the IntelĀ® CeleronĀ® G1620 processor, while multitasking and intensive processes are aided by 4 GB of RAM.

Storage is provided by an ample 500 GB hard drive that’s perfect for storing all your files, media and software.

Compact computing
Whatever the size of your room or work area, you can make the most of your available space thanks to the iMedia’s compact dimensions.

A combination of a far smaller case than most desktops and convenient, front mounted USB ports let you place the PC in smaller places than a larger unit, letting you enjoy the benefits of desktop computing regardless of available space.

Convenient connections
Connecting to your monitor is simple, with the choice between a high-definition HDMI or tried and tested VGA port, while the supplied PS2 mouse and keyboard provide easy, reliable navigation.

PS2 connectivity also frees up the eight USB ports, letting you connect more peripherals and accessories such as graphics tablets and sound cards.

There’s also a 5-in-1 memory card reader that makes short work of adding images directly from your camera’s memory card to your computer.

Perfect for everyday work, school or university use, the Packard Bell iMedia S2870 Desktop PC is ideal for any user.
