Lenovo IdeaCentre B305 Adds Multitouch to Lenovo Lineup

by Reads (3,093)

Remember the IdeaCentre B500 we just reviewed? Lenovo has taken that design and tweaked it, adding in AMD dual-, tri- and quad-core CPUs as well as two-finger multitouch. Sleek design, a multitouch screen and reasonably affordable? Where do we sign?


The new IdeaCentre B305 certain’t isn’t the first multitouch all-in-one that Lenovo has offered; at this point the Chinese PC giant is becoming something of an old-hand at the touchscreen game.  Still, the B305 manages to freshen up the design with what has become an iconic IdeaCentre look.


  • Processor: AMD Athlon II X2, X3 or X4 CPUs
  • Memory: 2 – 4GB DDR3 SDRAM
  • Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5450
  • Display: 21.5-inch 1920×1080 with two-finger multitouch
  • Operating system: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
  • Hard drive: 320GB, 500GB or 640GB options
  • Networking: Gigabit Ethernet
  • Wireless networking: 802.11/Wi-Fi
  • Optical drive: DVD+/-RW
  • Warranty: One year limited parts and labor

A base configuration, with 2GB of DDR3 and a dual-core CPU runs $699.  Maxing out the pre-configured systems with a bigger hard drive, quad-core processor and four gigabytes of memory brings the price up to $949.  Still, under a grand isn’t too shabby for the specs exhibited behind that multitouch display.
