Lenovo IdeaCentre K330 Desktop PC Review

 

Gaming performance from the GTX 460 was respectable, despite being a year-old mainstream card. There is room for additional graphics horsepower if desired as the microATX motherboard allows for SLI or CrossFireX setups, which can be purchased directly...

Lenovo IdeaCentre K330-77273GU

 

Stylish, speedy, and expandable: These three words are a good way to sum up the Lenovo IdeaCentre K330-77273GU desktop. With a $999 price direct from Lenovo, it sports a combo Blu-ray reader/DVD±RW drive, a dedicated graphics card, and a modest, but...

Solid app performance ; Attractive design ; Expandable ; Blu-ray drive

Limited gaming pep ; Cheap keyboard, mouse ; No USB 3.0

Fast & Quiet

 

This is perhaps the best product at this price-range in the market. With corei7 and 12GB of RAM, the system does its job very fast and runs very quietly. So far, I am very pleased with its performance.
