Lenovo ThinkCentre A58 Review

 

Lenovo has had a reputation for building efficient and capable business hardware since long before they became a commonly known name in the US.

Great build quality ; Legacy ports ; Power saving software

Wasted internal space ; No card readers ; Limited port selection

The Lenovo ThinkCentre A58 is a well-built, functional computer that any small business can use to their advantage. The build quality is top notch and features some unique additions, such as the top handle that eases moving the computer around and a...

The Lenovo ThinkCentre A58 is a dependable, mainstream business computer that will meet the needs of many business users. Though it doesn't offer the latest in leading edge computing technology, it can be an ideal fit for those who have a moderate...

idering only processor speed, the increase seems rather modest but that misses the most fundamental difference in the two types of processors. Whereas the Dual Core E5300 has two cores and two threads, the Quad has 4 cores and 4 threads. It’s a...

Great Small Bus machine

 

Only a 32 bit platform but for business purposes that is perfectly fine with me. Would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for the bloatware, but all was easy to remove.

Lots of Hard Drive space, and memory. Love the recovery tools built in

Too much bloatware, although not as much as Lenovo laptops

Lenovo ThinkCentre A58 review

 

Lenovo's ThinkCentre A58 is aimed at business users. It has a three-year onsite warranty, which is reassuring and surprisingly generous at this price. Unfortunately, the A58 is significantly less powerful than the other £400 PCs. The 2.5GHz Pentium...

Lenovo's ThinkCentre A58 is underpowered compared to the competition, but the three-year onsite warranty offers peace of mind to businesses.

Lenovo ThinkCentre A58

 

The new A58 gets off to a good start by offering a roster of familiar Lenovo features, including a chassis that's the same size as the M58 – and just as well built. It also boasts the same ingenious interior design that allows for easy access to all of...

Lenovo ThinkCentre A58

 

Lenovo's ingenious engineering is partnered with decent components for a tempting and practical business system.

Add the three-year warranty to the £332 base price and, at £380, Lenovo’s latest is still cheaper than the £475 M58. It may not have the quad core power of its predecessor (which seems like overkill, anyway) but it’s just as versatile and well-built –...
