Lenovo IdeaCentre A700

by Reads (19)

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A700 all-in-one desktop starts at less than $900. This review configuration carries a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $1,599. Lenovo just introduced a new refresh of the high-end A700; the Blu-ray drive is swapped out for a DVD+/-RW and RAM is knocked down to 4GB. The CPU is upgraded to an Intel Core i7-740QM running at 1.73GHz – but happily the whole setup got a discount to the tune of $350, coming in at $1,249. Lenovo currently offers all-in-one desktops in three main schemes: the nettop C’ series, which uses smaller screens and low-end Atom processors to dramatically reduce the price, the desktop-class B’ series, which uses desktop-class hardware to satisfy performance junkies looking to save some room, and the design-focused A’ series, which Lenovo uses to push the boundaries in terms of design, taking advantage of laptop- and mobile-class hardware in order to try out new form factors.
