Highly impressive performance when you consider the PCs tiny dimensions
If you're looking for the smallest PC possible, then the contest is over. All the Nano XS has to do is work, and you'll be satisfied. However, it does rather more than that. Read our Zotac Nano XS AD13 Plus review to find out more.
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.
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.
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.
Very fast, 4th-gen CPU, Dedicated sound card
Aside from its mostly unnecessary abundance of RAM, the XPS 8700 Special Edition is a well-rounded performance desktop that's a good fit as a family PC or a dorm-room power tower. It's powerful enough to handle pretty much any task that you throw at it, from high-end media creation to high-resolution gaming. And its desktop form factor and upgradability mean it won't have to be replaced as soon as one of the components gets too slow or fails.
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.
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.
Splashtop lets you use Windows 8 around the house
The Asus Transformer AIO (P1801-B037K) is an all-in-one Windows 8 PC where the screen is also an 18-inch Android tablet. You can switch back and forth between Windows and Android, so you can complete your work (or play) in Windows on a tabletop device that's lighter than competitive portable all-in-ones or large screen notebooks.
Exactly what I wanted
The tablet is definitely heavy. You're not going to carry it around and use it in your hands. It's fun to use on the couch though or propped up on a TV tray. It did not handle direct sunlight well in Android mode. Though it has a camera, it doesn't sense light in the room which means you need to adjust the brightness yourself. Speaking of which, the webcam is mediocre.
Unique yet well-implemented idea
In fact, for us the main problem with the AiO isn't the overall concept or even implementation - it's in timing. With major new ARM and x86 chips arriving from Nvidia and Intel (Tegra 4 and Haswell, respectively) soon, the Transformer AiO has arrived pretty late in the current hardware cycle.
Build quality of all the components is top notch
This particular variant of the Asus Transformer AiO powered by Intel Core i3 processor is priced at Rs 86,999. A Core i5 variant is also available, which is priced at Rs 92,999. The Transformer AiO is a great concept, but it's a bit too large. It would have been nice if the display was a 12-inch tablet and the PC Station was one-third the size with the same configuration. In that case, the tablet would have made more sense as a portable device.
