Lenovo IdeaCentre C340 review

 

While having a gorgeous-looking all-in-one that you can show off may be a good thing, the fact of the matter is that many people choose a computer like this because they want something small and cheap that doesn't take up a lot of room.

A great price and fast processor, but the screen quality lets the side down

Computer is fine, works well. Screen is clear, quiet. Very convenient with no tower

Problem is windows 8. I have found this to be very unfriendly. I still cannot get my Sony handycam to talk to it ; Bring back XP. Spent long periods setting it up with Office 2010, adobe etc. I have it working now with wireless all in one printer but...

Nice compact format which sits well on a desk

The WIndows 8 O/S and the huge number of bundled programs that have to be uninstalled and are a pain

Simple design and easy to set-up

Windows 8 (designed for touch screens) and wireless keyboard & mouse would have finished the package off

Lenovo C340 All-In-One

 

It is as easy to use as it is good to look at. I have only had it for two weeks, but so far there have been no problems ; I use my computer for on line teaching, and bough it because it had the inbuilt speakers and camera - and the quality of both is...

I am not the biggest fan of Windows 8, and find for a operating system that is meant to be so intuitive, it is rather confusing! It might be because I have moved from a Mac environment, but I am not the only person to make this comment

Easy to set up- just switched on and it's all there ; Quick to start up, and so quiet

Windows 8! So not intuitive. Slightly better now I'm using chrome instead of explorer ; And, such a shame the mouse and keyboard are wired... wireless would have been more in keeping
