Lenovo Ideacentre 510 (Intel) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Lenovo IdeaCentre 510 is available with an AMD or an Intel processor (although, you'll have to expand your budget for the latter). The processor isn't the only difference and, in our testing, we found that one version was head and shoulders above...

Good upgrade

 

I had little difficulty getting up and running, having had previous experience with PC's. If I were a first time user, however, I would have preferred a few more written instructions; if you've never had PC's you don't know exactly where to find all...

Very Happy

 

I purchased this after having a lot of issues with a Dell Inspiron 3268 I brought from JL. That was efficiently replaced with this item. Although twice the price I didn't want to risk having the same problems again so decided to get a different make...

Generally Rather Impressed

 

An ideal product to replace my aged desktop PC which provides a good level of features & technology and also frees up space with the excellent all in one design & compact but easy to use keyboard. I cannot fault graphics & sound quality. Overall...

Excellent replacement for old All-in-One

 

The Hardware is excellent - clear sharp screen, start up time very fast, game play is smooth and responsive. For my own requirements this computer fits the bill very well. It was easy to set up despite the fact that batteries were not provided for the...
