Lenovo C325 Review: An Unimpressive All-in-One, All Around


It's always nice when PC makers cram above-average components into budget-friendly, space-saving, energy-efficient machines. This is not one of those machines, however. The Lenovo C325 all-in-one PC costs just $499 (as of April 10, 2012), but this is...

Small and slim, with a compact footprint ; Pretty cheap

Screen is unattractive ; Awful performance

This all-in-one desktop may not pack much power, but it is budget-friendly, space-friendly, and environment-friendly.

Lenovo C325 all-in-one review


The all-in-one form factor presents an interesting use case: it required much of the same external setup as a desktop, but uses laptop parts in most cases and has the same resistance to expansion. The most obviously attractive quality of the all-in-one...

As a low-cost entry in the all-in-one world, the Lenovo C325 is solid. Pluses include good fit and finish and easily upgradeable memory and storage, with an excellent matte screen. The downside is that there just isn't enough processing power for...

Lenovo C325 All-in-One PC Review


Final ThoughtsLenovo has put together a nice system that can serve quite a few purposes.  These can be workstations at an office or agency.  This can be a companion system say in the kitchen or garage.  It makes the perfect family computer or system...

AllinOne unit, – Powerful enough for all basic tasks, – Lots of USB ports and included card reader, – Price

None that I found

Lenovo C325


The Lenovo C325 is a basic all-in-one desktop PC for those that would rather have a bigger screen than portability. Its energy-saving processor is sufficient for Web surfing duties, and the system's utility is higher than the relatively modest price...

Compact all in one. $500 price point. Lenovo utilities. Dynamic brightness system and Eye distance system. No bloatware

Low power on benchmark tests. No USB 3.0. No HDMI. No Video in or out. Only 60-day McAfee Anti-virus. Camera is "always on

The Lenovo C325 is a good choice for those looking to spend only about $500 for a fully featured desktop PC. It's bigger than a laptop, and has the power to serve your Web surfing and basic PC needs.

Lenovo C325 (30957AU)


It's easy to start a review of a budget PC by stating what it doesn't have. So let's instead begin here by discussing what features the Lenovo C325 all-in-one (AIO) PC brings to the table. For starters, this $499 model (available at Best Buy, in the...

Low price ; Respectable audio output ; Easy access to memory and hard drive

Poky performance ; No USB 3.0 or HDMI ports ; Webcam is not HD

This entry-level all-in-one delivers a 20-inch display and decent audio, but the lackluster performance of our test model makes it a better secondary system than primary PC for most users.

Lenovo C325 review


Graphics performance on the Lenovo C325 is nearly nonexistent, too. The integrated AMD Radeon HD 6320 graphics hardware is okay for casual multimedia consumption, but not much else. In our Dirt 3 graphics tests, the C325 managed an unplayable frame...

Lenovo's C325 is simply unimpressive all around. It's boring to look at, it's a poor performer, and multimedia looks and sounds average at best (and awful at worst). But all is not lost - the C325 has a small footprint, both physically and...

Sabertooth z77 3570k @4.5 8gb viper 3 @1866 Gtx 670 ftw Seagate barracuda 7200 1tb Corsair tx750

Cools extremely well, even when OC'd to 4.5 on my 3570k. Was relatively easy to install if you know what your doing. Im so far satisfied

A bit loud when oc'd very high but with a gaming headset or having it in a room with door closed, its just fine and not intrusive

Worth to buy


I think this is a good all in one desktop in its class. With an elegance design and really looks exclusive.
