Easy to set up, minimum wires, nice display,pleasing appearance.

When hibernate is selected it is a bit like sleeping beauty, it takes a lot to wake it up . I go and have breakfast and with a bit of luck it might be ready for use.

Lenovo Ideacentre C205 VBU1DUK

 

I have had to score this low as I am unable to complete this review unless I complete this section. I have not received this pc yet, so I am reviewing the supplier and not the product. I am still waiting for Tesco Direct to supply this item so I cannot...

Don't buy from Tesco Direct. Very bad communication.
