Lenovo IdeaCentre B540

 

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.

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.

Handsome design, Huge 1080p touch screen, A good deal for $899

So-so keyboard, No Blu-ray player, No DirectX 11 graphics, No HDMI input

If Best Buy had priced its version of the IdeaCentre B540 above $1,000 like so many other big-screen all-in-ones, we would say it offered a good feature set, decent performance, and sleek design at a reasonable price. At just $899, this system becomes...

Lenovo IdeaCentre B540p review

 

An all-in-one PC that's also a TV

Massive screen ; Ready for any task ; Quite the looker ; Included AV inputs

Rather expensive ; Awkward 3D viewing angle ; Hideous mouse ; Unpleasant remote

The Lenovo IdeaCentre B540p could well be Lenovo's flagship home desktop PC. It's less stuffy than its ThinkPad business laptops, less gimmicky than its flip-over Yoga laptop-tablet hybrids, and vastly superior to its previous line of all-in-one...

Lenovo IdeaCentre B540 VDX2NUK All-in-one

 

Great All in One computer, space saving and not many leads - bought in sale so excellent value

Too much software added that is not needed and Microsoft Office should be included!

Lenovo IdeaCentre B540

 

I really like the touch screen. As with all progressive systems, it takes a while to change or update your own user skills. Its still taking me a while.

I dont like the way apps are thrust at you whether or not you want them when watching dvds or catch up tv I can not adjust the brightness setting even though I have turned it up as high as it will go, it still looks as though the picture is shot in...
