Lenovo C460

 

The Lenovo C460 is a sub-$400 all-in-one desktop featuring a full HD display and a dual-core Pentium processor. Although it lacks a touch screen, it's well equipped for everyday computing tasks.

Affordably priced. Full HD display. Solid performance in testing.

No touch screen. Wired keyboard and mouse.

Conclusion If you only have $450 to spend on a family desktop, put the Lenovo C460 All-In-One Desktop on your short list. Its 21.5-inch screen delivers sharp 1080p video, and its Pentium processor provides more than enough power for basic computing...

A Rare Treat.

 

"Updated Posting; So I have been using this Lenovo PC for 11 months. I did the free MS Win 10 upgrade and it is completely compatible. It is top notch, No Poblems. No lockups, No slowdown in speed. This PC is a rare treat and worth every penny!...

Speed and Build Quality

Kind of heavy.

Great Computer! No complaints. Fast enough, runs Photoshop.

 

A great addition. I use it all the time.

Use it on top of my Yamaha DGX 650 piano, tethered to a cable so it acts as a player piano using Musicnotes software. Sits sturdy even while I play the piano. Touch screen is great. Works well with wireless keyboard. Has built in camera, and mic. Like...

DVD housing is fragile and got stuck. It's a little bent right now as I had to get the DVD out. Similar to the ones in a laptop. Maybe my fault, but DVD did get stuck. For the price, no complaints. I can always buy an external DVD RW if I plan on...

Fantastic Buy

 

I recommend it, and don't listen to a 1-egg review due to a defect, thumbs down for that guy. Could have at least given 3 eggs and said he blames NewEgg for the bad shipment..

Bought for business, works great, no defects (yay). Starts up in about 10 sec or less. Can handle multitasking lots of tabs from 3 different browsers and not seem to slow down, hopefully it doesn't start slowing down over time too fast. Lenovo should...

Bloatware took a good hour to manually remove, nothing crazy though

afterthought

 

originally I thought it was completely malfunctioning. I took it out to see if I could increase the tension on springs that hold it but didn't find any. I slammed it back into the cigarette lighter socket and heard a click. it holds now and doesn't...

it works, when it is working at its best it is great but it varies

the first 2 days it kept resetting. I resolved that but it is fussy on insertion ; reception varies, I get crystal clear reception for a mile then I get static and break up for awhile, then it is good again. I don't know if it needs to be shielded or...

not good

 

great idea, poor execution

you can use a micro sd card rather than cd's or tapes. easy to setup

every jostle resets it. drove me nuts, if the road was smooth it played well but the roads are rough from last year and patches. every time you hit a little jostle it shuts off or resets ; by the way, I am using it in a Buick Century which isn't...

Great computer!

 

Best overall computer I've ever owned - and there have been MANY. I love the touchscreen features, and the fact that everything is contained within the back of the monitor. I would highly recommend this to anyone as a great general purpose computer. If...

Space saving, excellent monitor, very well built, zippy, silent, best features of a touchscreen and a regular desktop

All the bloatware they stuff the machine with, not a machine for gamers

Inexpensive and good

 

It works well out of the box, and seems to run cool.

1) No recovery DVD or wizard to walk you through creating a set; 2) Windows 8.1 and the annoying touch screen slows down productivity; 3) Hard drive speed: Although there is room for a faster 3½" drive, Lenovo chose to install a 2½" drive; 4) Too much...
