For instance, in this gaming PC "MAG Codex X5 12TE-846IB" what means that IB at the end.

I see that there are other PCs whose name ends in EU (European Union), FR (France), DE (Germany), IT (Italy), etc... so I think it's a region code. But what region?

Thanks and best regards.

It means the region it's manufactured for. In this case it appears to be for Spain.

Thanks for the answer. Yep, googling I saw that IB named PCs are mostly sell in Spain (and some other spanish spoken countries). But I also saw that most of the MSI PCs sell in Spain have names ended in ES (ESpaña).

Si, the question is; what really IB means?

That is still Spain, aka Iberia. Perhaps they do things differently depending on a region within a country too, who knows 🤷‍♂️

Ok, thanks.

Still amazed why MSI is using two different codes for Spain (ES and IB) at same time. There must be a reason why.

Probably. But it's not something that really matters to end users.
