Lenovo's New Monolith Is an All-Powerful Immovable...

 

Is Lenovo's newest all-in-one PC powerful? Yes. Cheap? Mmm hmm. Easily portable? Oh my, no.

More than capable, with eyebrow-arching performance. Sophisticated design and a full passel of features. Even includes the TV remote

Touchscreen tech has taken its toll on screen brightness. No real touchscreen features built in. Concerns about tipping over (forward)

Lenovo IdeaCentre B305

 

The system comes with a 640GB, 7,200rpm hard drive, which is better than the 500GB capacity of rivals, but I'd like to see at least 750GB on a TV tuner-equipped model, since those users are more likely to record shows. HD shows notoriously take up lots...

Compact all-in-one. Discrete 3D graphics. Multi-touch screen. 1080p HD panel. HDTV tuner. Wall mount

Uses IR dongle for remote. Office 2007 Trial. No Blu-ray. Wireless keyboard and mouse optional. No HD inputs aside from Tuner. Tinny speakers

The Lenovo IdeaCentre B305 comes loaded with plenty of forward-looking technology: touchscreen, 3D graphics, HDTV tuner. It's a decent multimedia-oriented PC, with a price below $1,000.

Expert Review

 

This all-in-one PC is an average midrange model with a 1080p screen and a TV tuner, but it gets thoroughly outclassed by at least one major-maker competitor.

21.5-inch LCD with multi-touch support, Smooth 1080p HD playback, Runs quietly

No Blu-ray or HDMI, Advantages of the quad-core CPU won’t be felt by mainstream users, Bundled keyboard is poor

Lenovo IdeaCentre B305 review

 

The first thing you won't notice about Levono's multitouch IdeaCentre B305 is the noise. Other all-in-ones overcome the challenge of squashing PC components behind a hot monitor by adding a thousand whirring fans. The B305 boasts Zen-like tranquility...

Lenovo Ideacentre B305

 

This all-in-one PC doesn’t quite hit a hole in one The idea of an all-in-one computer, such as the Lenovo B305, is simple: it’s a PC that can be used by the whole family and takes up less ...

Lenovo IdeaCentre B305

 

With Apple's 21.5in iMacs starting at over £850 exc VAT, Lenovo's identically sized IdeaCentre B305 looks a bargain. Indeed, despite the much lower price it trumps Apple's offering in a few departments: you get a larger 640GB hard disk and a multitouch...

A dull all-in-one, but serviceable if all you demand is regular desktop computing

This I have to say is my first Lenovo purchase and it's the best all in one I have had. I have had several different computers, but not like this one. Everything is so simple and nothing complicated. Love the touchscreen, makes it easier. The screen is...

Excellent Purchase!

 

I, like some of the other reviewers, wrestled back and forth with myself on making the purchase. Finally, after much research, found that this was a tremendous opportunity! I am so impressed with its UNIQUE features, and am still learning daily, having...
