Lenovo ThinkCentre A57

 

The A57 offers strong performance at a reasonable price, and offers more upgrade options than the M57e.

Quad-core CPU means great performance Reasonably priced, Small, Windows XP or Vista

No space for another HDD, Limited graphics performance, Designed to sit horizontally

It's tiny but it provides adequate performance, and it's power efficeint.

Very small and energy efficient, useful management software

Some unnecessary trial software installed, tool-less chassis is a little awkward to open

The A57 is tiny and power efficient, and it's suitable for businesses large and small. It was a little sluggish in our tests, but not enough to hinder basic office applications and multitasking.

Lenovo ThinkCentre A57

 

The Lenovo A57 is a well-priced office desktop with a strong performance. While very similar to its smaller sibling, the M57e, the A57 offers better performance and upgrade options for a small price increase.
