Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z Review


Lenovo's attempts at all-in-one PCs have so far been confined to their consumer-centric lines, but with the ThinkCentre A70z they're pushing for your office (or at least your home-office). A sober black monolith with a surprisingly affordable price...

Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z


Lenovo's ThinkCentre A70z PC is smaller and cheaper than an iMac, but can it dethrone the king of all in one PCs?

Business-oriented all-in-one PC. Limited bloatware (just an Office trial). Wireless keyboard and mouse. Serial port. Under $1,000. ThinkVantage Utilities, including rescue and recovery. Integrated power supply.

Less than 1080p resolution. Check your software for Windows 7 compatibility. Keyboard is a little spongy.

Lenovo ThinkCentre a70z All-In-One


Compact All-In-One design, Convenient access to all computer components, Built-in webcam, Easy to move the computer from place to place, Windows 7 Enhanced Experience, Energy Star 5.0 Compliant, Additional Mounting Options

You cannot purchase from, Limited upgrades and customization, Noisy DVD\CD operation

To begin, I need to say that personally I am a huge fan of all-in-one systems. So I was preinclined to like the Lenovo A70z from the start. And I do like it very much. That's not to say the system is without flaws. Inherent in all-in-one systems, there...

Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z All-in-One Desktop Computer


Lenovo targets the ThinkCentre A70z squarely at business customers, but its all-in-one form factor might be of use to home users as well. Let's see what it can do.

Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z Review and Ratings


The business-centric A70z tackles productivity chores better than similarly priced all-in-ones, and it boots quickly out-of-the-box. Though it's bland-looking, its integrated power supply and wireless peripherals make it a good choice for cramped...

Relatively strong components ; Swift productivity performer ; Very fast boot time ; Compact design

Uninspiring aesthetics ; Somewhat pricey

Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z All in One PC Review


Regular readers of The Gadgeteer are familiar with the fact that I'm a Mac person. My main computer for the past several years has been an iMac. I upgraded last year to the 27″ version and it has been my work horse until early last month when it...

Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z Review


The Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z is a compact, and very affordable new All-in-one PC that is aimed at small businesses. The device is designed with the similar signature industrial matte black plastic aesthetics of Lenovo's ThinkPad notebooks. The A70z...

Much better value than a nettop for not much more money, saves company’s not only space, but also saves them money, clean design, solid feature set, better expandability options than with most AIO's, great support and warranty, overall a good business...

Lacks an SD card slot, lacks a video output port for running a dual-monitor setup, no firewire or eSata ports

Although the A70z was originally designed for large enterprises, mainstream and small businesses, Lenovo has since then realized that the A70z is also well suited for education institutions too. And we imagine that these systems would hold up great in...

The Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z 1165 as a Digital Picture Frame With Benefits; Why Not?!


At the end of 2008 I bought my first digital picture frame, the Gigantor 15″ from Think Geek, which at the time was one of the largest available without getting into astronomical amounts of money. I paid about '00 for it, which I thought was a pretty...

The A70Z is an effective all-in-one PC for an office environment. With a matte finish 19" LCD, reflection and glare are not an issue, making it easy on the eyes for extended use. Using desktop hardware allowed Lenovo to install a much faster processor...
