Great value all-in-one
For the price point this is an all around great desktop. The screen is bright and nice with great color, its relatively speedy for the price range, and comes in an attractive package. It looks and feels like it cost more than $500. My only complaint comes from working with windows 8, but that will be an issue with any new computer. It does what I need it to do, which is be a competent family computer.
A true All-In-One computer solution for casual users and families alike
Lenovo IdeaCentre C345 is a computer of mediocre performance yet excellent value. It's extremely affordable considering the fact it comes with monitor, keyboard and mouse. It's a true All-In-One computer solution for casual users and families alike.
Has all the key features you'll want a fantastic computing experience
A great in one desktop PC for those with less funds, but have needs for rich features to produce computing and internet based tasks, easy to accomplish. May well have the bells and whistles like those available from the Apple iMac MD093LL/A 21.5-Inch Desktop, however it has all the key features you'll want a fantastic computing experience.
Experience real satisfaction with this All-in-One Desktop
Finally, Lenovo IdeaCentre C345 has a lot of things to offer to us all. We will surely not regret once we have decided to purchase this device. Keep your eyes open as you experience real satisfaction with this All-in-One Desktop.
A handful of poorly located ports
The entire point of a hybrid is value. It provides both a tablet and PC for less than the cost of both when purchased individually. But rather than respecting this, Dell's gone the opposite direction and priced the XPS 18 higher than a tablet and mid-range Ultrabook (or desktop PC) combined. And that just doesn't make sense.
Stunning screen, Nice design, Feels responsive, Great for entertainment
There is the seed of something very good indeed in the Dell XPS 18. It's a weird one, and it's easy to question why you would want a portable desktop PC, but once you've used one, the question feels more like, 'why not have this option?'.
Right now, the main reasons why not are the connectivity and price relative to power. But they can change.
A truly portable all-in-one
Wrapping up what's becoming a long-winded conclusion, we like many more things than we don't about this system. It's one of the first and few hybrid designs that's more functional than gimmicky, and because of it's Ivy Bridge foundation, there's plenty of power for general purpose computing and even some gaming. If the flexibility of a detachable, portable 18-inch tabletop PC appeals to you, this system has your name all over it.
IPS display with good viewing angle stability
Dell presents a conclusive and working concept with the XPS 18. The big tablet meets the requirements of an All-in-One PC.
Contrary to the Sony Vaio Tap 20 the XPS 18 can still be called a tablet; it is not even half the weight of the Sony. This fact also makes it more family friendly. Mutual gaming, reading or multimedia entertainment is no problem even for the smaller family members. The large display also enables a gaming evening for the whole family.
Portable yet works well as a desktop PC
After spending a month with the Dell XPS 18, it's hard not to really like it. The lovely IPS display, occasional portability and quiet performance are strong selling points. It looks attractive, is well made and stays cool thanks to the low powered internals. It's not the product for serious gamers or CAD workers, but it's perfect for everyday productivity and multimedia entertainment.
Versatile design, Excellent connection options
Anyone looking for the fastest PC ever built is going to be sorely disappointed with the performance on offer from the Lenovo IdeaPad Q190, but other than that, there's a lot to like here.
It's versatile, well-priced and offers up a good selection of ports. The small footprint means it's just as well-placed next to your television as it is as a discrete desktop, and the sizeable hard drive covers many uses too.
Solid multimedia performance
With an easily accessible, IT-friendly chassis that can pop open without any tools, the Dell OptiPlex 9010 Small Form-Factor is a solid choice for businesses looking to save space without necessarily compromising performance, though more nimble systems in the same price range are readily available.
Build quality is superb throughout
There's plenty to like about Dell's office-bound all-in-one, from its good screen and solid build quality to its powerful performance, at least when it comes to applications. It's not cheap but, if you're after a business all-in-one, the performance and versatility make it worthwhile - just make sure the Apple iMac isn't a better option first.
Display is quite bright but at the cost of poor black levels
Situations where the i7-3770S in our review system is overkill, unfortunately. The 9010 AiO becomes appropriate only for mass deployment in offices, schools, and libraries where not much more than a terminal is really needed. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's a situation where even the option to upgrade could've allowed the 9010 AiO to serve multiple masters just as effectively. Markets were sacrificed, full stop.
Great for the price you pay
I was looking for a PC I could customize with my own parts but, with it having decent parts at stock and I have to say, you cant get better for the price. Don't be discouraged by the i3 Processor, it is WTFast! At over 3.0 GHZ it can handle almost anything! I did change the 4 GB to 8 and changed the graphics card but, if you are a person looking for a PC you can upgrade that has good parts at the beginning, this is for you!
1080p HD screen, 15-month McAfee protection
If you have a need for composite AV in and VGA in on a touch screen all-in-one desktop, the Inspiron One 23 should be on the top of the list. If you don't need this admittedly specialized set of inputs, then there are other more attractive AIO PC choices out there for the same amount of money.
Best desktop - ever!
We've been Dell customers for 7+ years and our old laptops were - well - tired. Purchased this All in One and it absolutely rocks! Fast and huge screen with bluetooth keyboard and touchscreen. I purchased a Dell 17" laptop, which I also like, but I wish we bought 2 x All in Ones.
Awesome! Great speed. Easy to setup, although a bit heavy. The best part is the Windows Media Center
on 27 inches of close up high definition. And matched with the Bose companion 5, and a Memorex
Blu Ray burner with USB 3.0... Oh yeah!...The TV tuner works great. All kinds of audio/video multitasking
is a snap. The Touch Screen is tons of fun for games. Unless you really need a laptop...this is the way to go!
Nice Capacitive Multitouch Display
Lenovo's IdeaCentre A720 differs for the majority of the new 27-inch all-in-one systems because it offers a capacitive multitouch display. While this may not be a huge feature right now, when Windows 8 launches it will give it a major advantage. It also does an excellent job with media features by including Blu-ray and HDMI inputs allowing it to double as a media station while still have a very small overall profile.
Lenovo IdeaCentre A720
We really feel that Lenovo has a hit with the IdeaCentre A720 with only a few minor glitches. The Blu-ray player, beautiful 27-inch touchscreen and stunning design really make us love this PC. The lack of additional USB ports, a higher screen resolution and mediocre benchmark performance isn't enough to keep us away. We believe that once Windows 8 is released this fall and more touch-centered apps are available, this PC will become even better.
Excellent build quality
We fell in love with the A720 when we took it out of the box. It's a sleek entry into a world of 27-inch all-in-ones that are universally chunky. Even Apple should be jealous.
The honeymoon quickly wore off, however, as we started to notice some flaws. The A720's touchscreen seems pointless given the lack of a good touch interface. Performance is behind the competition. And the display doesn't serve up as many pixels as it should.
Brilliantly designed display mount
The A720's VA (Vertical Alignment) display looks gorgeous with video, websites, and games, but it doesn't hold a candle to the 2560x1440-pixel PLS panel on the Dell XPS One 27. Then again, the Dell costs $300 more than the Lenovo. So let's compare Lenovo's A720 to Asus's ET2701 INKI-B046C: That machine costs $200 less and is equipped with a faster CPU and GPU.
