Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 Review

 

Lenovo has introduced the most exciting all-in-one computer design since HP reinvigorated the market with its TouchSmart series in 2008. The IdeaCentre A720 is a pizza-box design, much like the original TouchSmart; but modern ingredients enabled Lenovo...

27-inch, 10-finger touchscreen; brilliantly designed display mount

Terrible speakers; only three available USB ports; mediocre benchmark performance

Review: Lenovo IdeaCentre A720

 

With Windows 8 around the corner, touch-enabled PCs will soon abound. Lenovo's IdeaCentre A720 is one of these forward-looking devices -- the dominant feature here...

Sleek and sensible design. Fully adjustable screen can be laid flat, and the IPS panel offers great viewing angles. All the entertainment necessities are here, including Blu-ray, HDMI in/out and a TV antenna jack. One of the best touchscreen all-in-one...

Display resolution is a bit low for a 27-inch screen. Performance doesn’t quite match the price. Bundled peripherals are uninspired

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 Review

 

It's a sleek entry into a world of 27-inch all-in-ones that are universally chunky.

We fell in love with the A720 when we took it out of the box. It’s a sleek entry into a world of 27-inch all-in-ones that are universally chunky. Even Apple should be jealous.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720

 

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 ($1,449.99 list) is a very good touch-screen PC. The best way to describe it is a 27-inch tablet PC with an ergonomic stand. You won't ever consider this 25-pound system a portable, but if you're specifically looking for a...

Large screen. Slim, attractive design. Blu-ray. HDMI-in and HDMI-out

IR dongle for the remote. Could've gone higher resolution with a 27-inch screen. Middling performance on benchmark tests.Bottom Line: The Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 is

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 is one of the better touch-screen desktops out there, and sports an innovative design. But in terms of performance and features, it lags behind competing desktops.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 Review

 

It's time to get serious about touch-screen computers here in the summer before Window 8 is formally released - and Lenovo's got your back with a massive all-in-one called the IdeaCentre A720. This 27-inch display-toting AIO works with 1920 x 1080...

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 is a home run for Lenovo. You won’t find a better touchscreen PC for this price, not until Windows 8 makes touchscreen PCs a commodity. For now they’re still somewhat of a rarity – and this machine is one of the good ones....

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 Review

 

Final ThoughtsLenovo has really done a great job with the IdeaCentre A720.  Just the design itself is something you really would not expect from Lenovo.  If you took all of the Lenovo logos off of the A720 and put it in front of people I don't think...

Sleek and stylish design, – 27inch touchscreen display, – Display can be made flat, – TV tuner and HDMI in

Could have had a larger resolution on the 27inch display, – Speakers are not the best

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 Review and Ratings

 

Those looking for a stunning, forward-looking entertainment desktop that's well-equipped for Windows 8 will appreciate the IdeaCentre A720. But be aware that other big-screen all-in-one PCs deliver better performance for similar prices.

Massive, responsive 27-inch touch screen ; Gorgeous, versatile design ; Large touch surface makes a Windows 8 upgrade an exciting prospect

Mobile components mean performance isn't great for the price ; Program load times sometimes feel sluggish ; Only two USB 3.0 ports

While it trails the competition in performance tests, particularly in the CPU department, and was occasionally sluggish when launching its touch apps, there's a lot to like about the Lenovo IdeaCentre A720, particularly on the entertainment front. With...

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 Review

 

Power delivered in an unconventional design.

Impressive performance, sleek design, large selection of games and apps, sturdy build quality

Average keyboard and mouse, port locations could have been better, screen slightly too glossy

The mouse is also rather boring and felt very cheap in my hands compared to the overall grandeur of the A720. It’s almost as if Lenovo found the lease expensive mouse they could find and stamped their logo across the top. What’s particularly confusing...

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720

 

Lenovo has created a great piece of hybrid technology in the A720. It's an all-in-one PC with a little bit of tablet mixed in. There are a few bells missing – we'd love to see more USB ports – and it lacks a strong audio core, but hooking up your own...

You can fold down the touchscreen monitor so it sits parallel to a desk or table, making the screen it feel like a 27-inch tablet

There is no customization with the audio. All you can do is adjust the volume and change the frequency

This all-in-one computer is designed with entertainment in mind. The screen is large and features 1080p resolution, and the touchscreen makes it easy to play interactive games with others.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720

 

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 is a stunning all-in-one desktop PC that sports a beautiful, Apple-like design and a multitouch 27-inch 1080p display. The design of the PC is definitely its strongest selling point, but the touchscreen and multimedia...
