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

Lenovo’s Giant Touchscreen PC Is Primed for Work and Play

 

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 is its giant 27-inch touchscreen.

The IdeaCentre A720 is Lenovo's flagship all-in-one, and its entry into a plus-sized 27-inch market that includes Apple's iMac and the Dell XPS. Like those big-name competitors, the A720 does not try to be inexpensive. Even the most basic configuration...

Beautiful design ; Excellent build quality ; Good peripherals

Lacking critical connectivity ; Display resolution is too low ; Poor audio quality ; Below average performance ; Not a good value

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

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.

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....

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

It's nice to see some serious design divergence in the all-in-one desktop-PC space. For years, companies were essentially just slapping components behind an LCD screen and adding some aesthetic accents in the hopes of making their machines look as good...

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

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.

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.

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...
