Lenovo IdeaCentre B520: A Giant Leap for All-In-One Kind

 

It is rare to find an all-in-one desktop that can be compared to a gaming machine, but Lenovo took on the challenge with the IdeaCentre B520 (listed, as configured, at $1799, as of 10/13/2011). Is it possible to deliver a smooth gaming performance with...

Powerful machine with a slim design ; Great media center functionality

Pricey ; Lackluster port selection

The Lenovo IdeaCentre B520 is a nice step forward for All-in-Ones, but it lacks some high-end features while retaining a high-end price.

Lenovo IdeaCentre B520

 

The B520 has a bunch of external ports for expansion, including six USB 2.0 ports, HDMI in, HDMI out, composite video AV in, and the usual audio and Ethernet ports. The system lacks newer ports like USB 3.0 and eSATA, but the two HDMI ports and...

Built-in 3D (with glasses). Blu-ray player. Seamless touch screen. Built-in 5.1 surround simulation. Very good multimedia benchmark scores. HDMI in and HDMI out. Easy to open chassis for hard drive and memory upgrades. Comes with Angry Birds

External IR receiver for remote takes up USB port. Expensive. Glossy screen. Not a lot of 3D programming yet. Motion mouse and Kinect-like Camera Fun Zone are technologies waiting for developers to create games for them. No USB 3.0 or eSATA. Extra...

HD video enthusiasts will totally "get" the Lenovo IdeaCentre B520 all-in-one desktop. It can hook up to any video source from the past 30 years, from the latest 3D Blu-ray player to that old VCR you have in the closet.

Lenovo IdeaCentre B520 review

 

Lenovo's IdeaCentre B520 is one of the most feature-packed all-in-one PCs we've seen. It has a 23in 1,920x1,080 LCD touchscreen, which is fairly standard, but this one is also 3D-ready. The PC has a mobile 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT555M graphics processor...

This impressive all-in-one entertainment PC can handle everything from games to 3D movies

Absolutely great All-In-One

 

Beautiful 23" display, i5-2310 processor, nvidia 555M GPU, 6GB, 1TB. The bluetooth peripherials are easy to use and the software that support them is proactive and in your face. The machine is very fast and runs Diablo 3 without any problems. Suitable...

Only 2 USB3 ports on this model. Only 1 (filled) internal drive bay

Lenovo B520 all in one computer

 

we really like the computer but it did not come with tutorials as appeared on tv, and it is not as user friendly as it looked! Even paperwork with tech support numbers not included. The self help guides are very vague and trying to get the tv tuner to...

Lenovo Computer is great!

 

I can't believe how fast this thing is! Wow the graphics are wonderful. It's so pretty, if that is possible for a computer to be pretty, but I just love it. DON'T SIT ON THE FENCE FOR THIS ONE! It is worth the money and more! Thank you!!!
