Lenovo IdeaCentre B540

 

The Lenovo IdeaCentre B540 ($899 list) is a moderately priced touch-screen all-in-one desktop PC with a decent, if unremarkable, feature set. For about $900, you get a full touch-screen Windows 8 experience on a nicely equipped, nicely designed system....

Touch screen. Nice price. No external power brick. Easy to service

No DX11 due to older Intel HD Graphics 2000. Could use more tilt range. USB 3.0 ports in back. Only HDMI-out. No Blu-ray

The Lenovo IdeaCentre B540 all-in-one PC is one of the less expensive ways to get a true Windows 8 experience with a large screen. You do give up a little compared to more expensive all in ones, but it's still a decent buy all the same.

Lenovo IdeaCentre B540

 

The Lenovo IdeaCentre B540 offers enough power to handle work and entertainment for everyone in the family. Unfortunately, some of the computer's operational issues come from Windows 8's bugs, and to get the best all-in-one PC, you'll have to buy...

The touchscreen is responsive, and Windows 8 makes everything smooth and easy to use

Many of the best features are optional and add extra costs to your computer, such as a Blu-ray reader/writer or TV tuner

As an affordable all-in-one PC, the Lenovo IdeaCentre B540 offers excellent quality and terrific performance, but to get the best features, you'll have to spend a little more than the base price.

Love it

 

I received this as a birthday gift. The shipping was quick - next day, the product is amazing, the style works and the sale price was right. The sound needs some work, but overall, the product as well as the customer service from Lenovo is wonderful.

Awesome Purchase

 

The Lenovo B540 is easily the best computer I've ever owned. I'm a full time student (web based courses), moderate photo editor, amateur painter, and creative writer. The gorgeous screen makes the virtual conferences of graduate school a joy to attend....

Good for home

 

All in one computer is good for home. Not sure about office, because this PC has a good multimedia. I prefer using Linux OS on desktop, and it is works nice.

It is a great computer. Never had a touch screen, so it is taking me time to learn how to use it.
