Lenovo C540 Touch review: An excellent budget all-in-one that delivers on performance


The Lenovo C540 Touch may not look like much, but under the hood it delivers some decent performance with an abundance of memory that won't leave you scrounging for more.

The Lenovo C540 ($499 list as configured) is a basic all-in-one desktop geared toward those with modest computing needs who want to save space without breaking the bank. It's a Windows 8-equipped system kitted out with an excellent 23-inch display and...
