Consumer review (

New Lenovo Desk Top


It does what I expected without any problems. I'm not doing anything that requires any a fast computer. Basic downloading pictures, browsing internet, and doing emails.

Win 8.1 64 bit ; It isn't as bad as people say ; Lenovo made a very nice computer. Very quiet, an also very responsive. Not a power house but a good everyday use computer

Non really ; Honestly I don't have any thing bad to say

Lenovo C355 All-in-One


Speed and minimal footprint.

1 - fFr too many highly intrusive time-wasting sales gimmicks to be got rid of - not always a simple master! This is a real turn-off. 2 - The version with wireless operated mouse and keyboard would be very much better. (I did not check this when buying...

Lenovo C355 All-in-One


Valuable all in one so few wires. White colour suits a kitchen well. Very fast, and flexible machine.

Seemed to come with (or pick up) several annoying bits of software for 'clean-up' etc.
