Lenovo C300 (3012-2DU)


When you put an Atom processor in an inexpensive desktop, there are bound to be compromises. Not so with the Lenovo C300 (3012-2DU) ($549 list), the first all-in-one nettop to transcend its humble processor and offer the usability and features we look...

Large screen. Dual-core Atom processor. Discrete graphics. Good bang for buck. Can handle HD content. DVD burner. No bloatware. Maxed out with 4GB of memory

PS/2 keyboard. Graphics card tuned for video, not 3D. Trend Micro Internet Security only 90-day subscription

The Lenovo C300 (3012-2DU) comes the closest (so far) to the ideal all-in-one nettop PC, with a high-resolution 20-inch screen, a dual-core Atom processor, and decent graphics, all for the same price as your average mainstream system.

Lenovo IdeaCentre C300 Review


The Lenovo C300 series is part of their value line of desktops, offering affordable all-in-ones starting at $449.

Very nice 20" 1600x900 display ; 3.5-inch hard drive ; Optional dedicated graphics

PS/2 keyboard ; Single-core Atom standard

The Lenovo C300 is a pretty nice value when you compare it to other budget all-in-one systems currently on the market. Users get a speedy 3.5" 7200RPM hard drive, good looking 20" 1600x900 display, and on the highest tier for $549, dedicated ATI Radeon...

Lenovo C300 (3012) Review and Ratings


Its design won't appeal to everyone, but the C300 feels more solidly built than any other Atom-based all-in-one PC we've seen. It's a great choice for users with tight budgets and light computing needs.

Solid build quality ; Large, high-resolution integrated screen ; Generous amount of ports ; Low price versus other Atom-based all-in-ones

Polarizing design elements ; Only average performance

Lenovo IdeaCentre C300


With a dual core Atom and ATI HD 4530 dedicated graphics, the IdeaCentre C300 all-in-one offers great value for your money.

Inexpensive ; Dual core Atom CPU ; Dedicated graphics


The best Atom-based all-in-one desktop we've reviewed thus far, the Lenovo IdeaCentre separates itself from the rest with its very good performance. For Rs. 32,380, it is also inexpensive than any other entry-level all-in-one we've reviewed. Buy this...

Consumer review (

Good for the price


The cable for the mouse is a bit short, unless you are left handed. If the ports on back were redesigned to face downward and had capability to attach a VESA wall mount, it would be perfect.

Bought it for my cousin. He loves it. Very convenient since he lives in a small apartment. Much faster than his old computer and the big screen is a plus

Beautiful Screen, otherwise...


Great, cheap, and easy. Not high performance, but nice

This thing has a huge beautiful screen ; It's simple for my clients to use ; More then enough "specs" for average users

Mildly slow
