They're still around in Europe, where their product quality was
apparently not quite so abysmal. Haven't seen anything by them in a
long time in the U.S., though. They have the dubious honor of one of
the only computer manufacturers I've ever anti-recommended when asked
what kind of computer to buy. (As in, "Whatever you do, don't buy a
Packard Bell.") At one time PC World ranked them as having made the
worst PCs of all time.
