This was my second computer:

Packard Bell MultiMedia 9030.jpg

Trying to get some information about it (e.g. release year), but it's not easy!

I remember it came with an MDK and Swiv 3D (both possbibly demos, I don't recall). I am sure it came with the full version of FIFA 97, too.

Good times (Navigator ftw!) :p

SWIV 3D and FIFA 97 were released in 1996, whilst MDK was released in 1997.

I guess the PC was from 1997-1998.

I think it cost my dad £699 or £799.

EDIT: Found a page containing support for the Packard Bell 9000 Series.
