Lenovo C470 AIO

 

Easy to connect to Internet. Had some software and apps that were useful. Very quick. Everything built in. No tower is good space wise. Large screen is good too.

Would have liked more software options, maybe a better Office package. Would have helped with work. Could have been a bit more specific with delivery times sooner. We had to wait in all day for it.

Decent speed, storage and memory. silent, an all in one perfect for minimal room space to install.

This a touch screen which has taken almost 2inches of display as dark boarder all around not viewable. Had i known this earlier I would have not purchased.

Quality screen. Touch works well. Very quick time to load.

Pre-loaded MS Office is a nightmare and needs to be removed entirely if you already have a licence and wish to reuse the old licence. This also aappliesto AV software.

Lenovo C470 AIO

 

The Lenovo system was able to address my limited knowledge of computers very well. I have still a lot to learn to enjoy the full features of the system.

Far too many apps. I am an analogue man in a digital age.
