Lenovo IdeaCentre A310

 

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A310 all-in-one desktop improves on its predecessor with more features, but keeps the same attractive design. It's a prime option if you're all about the modern design or you want a video-oriented desktop.

Svelte design. Wireless keyboard and mouse. HDMI in and out. HDTV tuner. Bluetooth. Adjustable screen.

External optical drive. No Blu-ray. No 802.11a/n 5GHz. External power brick. External IR dongle for MCE remote. Short 60-day subscription to McAfee anti-virus.

GOOD FOR GAMING!

Expert review by: Redmond Grybauskas (computershopper.com)

Lenovo IdeaCentre A310

 

In June of 2010, we took a look at Lenovo's stunning—if blatantly Apple-inspired—IdeaCentre A300. While this all-in-one (AIO) PC's super-thin 21.5-inch LCD made our jaws drop, its outdated 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo T6600 processor crippled its performance...

Much speedier than previous model ; Stunning design ; Includes HDMI ports, TV tuner, external DVD drive

Competing AIOs outperform ; Cramped keyboard ; Screen begs for Blu-ray

The A310’s stunning design masks a PC peppy enough for average computing tasks. Plus, its connectivity options make the most of its 1080p screen.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A310 VCL1EUK

 

Lots of features and works pretty well, more than fast enough for home applications without the ultimate in gaming Display is very good and the whole system makes a nice compact installation that looks good anywhere in the house

The mouse is dire, plan to get a wireless mouse or a wired one. The response is jerky and erratic and was unable to fix it Dated Windows and a consequential need to download service packs, but of course only happens once.

nice bright screen and generally a joy to use

Bluetooth mouse is heavy because it contains two batteries, also it tends to jump about sometimes. I have changed to a normal cable mouse. The bluetooth keyboard sometimes has a lag response. The User Guide illustrates a bluetooth remote control which...

style & looks. Touch screen is responsive & accurate.

The mouse / keyboard take 10 seconds to connect (bluetooth) but that could be worse. The TV EPG is downloaded from the internet, a frustration as I havent had broadband for a few weeks.
