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.
Nice Desktop with a moderately fast processor
I bought this machine for my grandson from Amazon, LLC. So far I like most everything about the computer, it has windows 8 which should be fine when the update comes out the end of this month. There is limited bloatware on this machine which I removed. It has McAfee which I removed and then turned on windows defender much better and free. The thing was that while the box was sealed by Lenovo when I opened the box you could tell it was a re-seal.
Built-in Wi-Fi & optional Blu-ray
Lenovo continues to make strides in the slim desktop PC category with the IdeaCentre H520s. It combines a slim space-saving design with ease of use and a range of entertainment features. It features an Intel Core i5 CPU, 6GB of RAM, built-in wireless connectivity and a 1TB hard drive. The slim design does limit future expansion, but it comes with everything most users will need.
Lenovo IdeaCentre H520
Lenovo IdeaCentre H520 is a high-tier desktop suitable for power-seeking users who don't want to pay too much for their computer. Graphics performance is subpar so gamers would do better with another desktop, but other power users would definitely enjoy this Lenovo.
It's a fast, elegant computer with more power than a similar appearing Mac. Shipping was fast.
No bloatware. Many all-in-ones are underpowered.
Inexplicably, the price was increased from one day to the next last week by $100, and Dealville was firm on the price.
I recommend waiting until they reduce the price to $999.99 again, since newer models with the Haswell processor will be out soon.
Good for the gamer on a budget
I received the computer and was able to plug everything in and turn it on with no problems. Windows 8 takes a bit of getting used to but aside from the live tile startup page there's a link to a desktop view that's basically Windows 7. I used to be into gaming pretty heavy and had upwards of 80 games installed on my last gamer.
Good, functional design, Simple and easy to upgrade
Acer has finally delivered a gaming desktop with an advantage over the market's veterans. While a sense of awe or occasion might be missing from this bare-bones rig, it's hard to argue with a legitimately capable gaming desktop that is sold for less than $1,500 and offers respectable upgradability. Acer's Predator G3 offers outstanding bang-for-the-buck. Gamers on a budget should absolutely consider the G3.
Has everything you need (except monitor) to get up and running quickly
BEING A PREVIOUS GATEWAY CUSTOMER, THIS WAS AN EASY CHOICE FOR ME. IT HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED (EXCEPT MONITOR) TO GET UP AND RUNNING QUICKLY. IT HAS A HUGE HARD DRIVE AND 6GB OF MEMORY WHICH IS PLENTY FOR THE AVERAGE USER. A BEAUTIFUL CASE PLUS A KEYBORD AND MOUSE AND PLENTY OF USB PORTS PLUS 2 USB 3.0 WHICH SPEEDS UP YOUR UPLOADS OR DOWNLOADS. FOR THE PRICE, IT WOULD BE A WISE CHOICE FOR A COMPUTER.
Great computer and has all the works
This is a great computer. Has all the works. I did not have the option to have Microsoft Office 2010 onto it but I already had Microsoft 2007 to put on there so no worries for me there. The only problem that I have is the stupid Windows 8 OS. Really hate the Windows 8 style and not good for non-touch screen computers. I want to down grade, but I might have to pitch in some money because the system does not say what Windows 8 it is, either home or professional.
Attractive, functional enclosure and well-rounded performance
Should you buy this desktop when new processors are right around the corner? We think so, as the new processors will probably command a slight premium. But, if youâ??d rather wait, feel free to do so since Acer will no doubt continue using this excellent design for desktops built on the new Intel processors.
A desktop for someone requiring bit more power than a typical low-end computer has to offer
Acer Aspire AT3-600-UR11 is a desktop for someone requiring bit more power than a typical low-end computer has to offer. If you're into HD movies, casual gaming or some heavy programs, you'd get the most out of this desktop. If you also happen to already own a monitor, buying this Acer wouldn't basically hurt your wallet at all.
Small size, Excellent build quality
Although the combination of new processor and new graphics card makes this system a performer, it's not without flaw. Upgradability is limited and difficult, and the price tag just north of $2,600 is nothing to sneeze at, though Falcon NW's pricing seems fair given the system's spectacular hardware.
Small gaming systems remain a niche product, but this one is a must-have for the few LAN warriors who remain.
Very High End All-In-One - Only a Few Trivial Notes
This is an exceptionally powerful and beautiful computer. Honestly, it's overkill for 90% of users, including me, who will feel absolutely no difference between this computer and one that costs $700 less. Moreover, those users will be better off buying an all-in-one with a cheaper processor and a solid state hard drive. For those of us who want absolutely top end performance, whether we need it or more likely do not, this model with an upgraded hard drive in an incredibly potent machine.
Dominant performance in its class
Hands down, the Dell XPS 27 Touch Touch is the most powerful all-in-one weâ??ve tested to date. It annihilated every other machine in our reference database in every test, including Dell's own last-generation model, the original XPS One 27. Some scores approached those of solid gaming rigs weâ??ve had in the lab previously, thanks to the system's fast processor and discrete NVIDIA graphics.
Great value, but I expected more out of this machine. With 16gb RAM, the newest i7 4770k processor, a decent graphics card, and 3.0 USB technology, I expected the M51AC to be 10x faster than my other 10 year old PC.
The fact is, 3.0 isn't all it's cracked up to be, 5gbps is unattainable, Windows 8 slows the machine down just enough that the processor, graphics card and RAM are a wash, and installing a SSD helped a little bit when used as a Ready Boost Drive, but not very much.
