Lenovo IdeaCentre A300


With a 21.5-inch screen, the IdeaCentre A300 sits at the lower end of the size scale in the big-screen all-in-one PCs category. It is by no means a workhorse; instead, Lenovo designed it to stream Web-friendly high-definition media while looking pretty...

Stunning chassis ; HDMI inputs and TV tuner

Lacks an optical drive

Lenovo's IdeaCentre A300 offers a wealth of connection options in a stunning shell.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 and Multimedia Keyboard review

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300


The system's speakers are in a hollow space under the stand, facing the user. If you place the keyboard up against the base, it can block the sounds from the speakers. It's not too bad when you're surfing, but they sound better when you're watching TV...

Svelte design. Wireless keyboard and mouse. HDMI in and out. HDTV tuner. Bluetooth. Adjustable screen

No optical drive. No 802.11a/n 5GHz. External power brick. No MCE remote. Short 30-day subscription to McAfee anti virus

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 is an all-in-one with a fashion-forward design that will fit any room's setting. This media center desktop has almost everything to fit your digital entertainment needs, but lacks a Blu-ray player to complete the package.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 (40181OU) Review and Ratings


If design is paramount in your PC-purchasing decision, the IdeaCentre A300 certainly is stunning. But you'll get much better performance and features from competing systems in this price range.

Stunning (if derivative) design ; TV tuner ; Wireless peripherals

Performance lags well behind competition in this price range ; Bluetooth keyboard is cramped ; Pre-installed pop-up-ad software ; No optical drive

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 review


It is by no means a workhorse; instead, Lenovo designed the Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 to stream web-friendly high-definition media while looking pretty in a corner of your den.

HP's All-in-One 200 is a strong competitor in the similar price bracket, but the Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 is both capable and attractive. If you don't need a workhorse, and you want a stylish, wireless machine to fit into a tight space, add Lenovo's A300...

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300


The IdeaCentre A300 is one of the slimmest all-in-one desktop PCs around with a unique asymmetric design and full-HD screen.

Slim, compact chassis ; Two HDMI and TV Tuner ports ; 22-inch screen, Full-HD 1920x1080 ; Wireless keyboard, mouse

No DVD drive ; Keyboard lacks dedicated number pad

Though it isn't a performance machine, the Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 offers a wealth of connectivity options in a slim and stylish case.

A Fantastic PC!!!


I'm not a salesman so I apologize if I sound like one, but I really can't say enough good things about this machine. I must say Lenovo has developed a real winner here...a beautiful, sleek, powerful, and incredibly fast PC that in my opinion ...

Remarkable, compact, impressive, super fast PC with an awesome screen

No optical drive. Keyboard useless for number-crunching work, not enough USB ports
