Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 and Multimedia Keyboard review

 

Lenovo seems to have developed a clear two-pronged strategy: for business, it leans on the knowhow and tradition it purchased from IBM with the demure Think li...

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 40181OU review: Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 40181OU

 

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 40181OU

Unique design; same footprint as standard all-in-ones; lots of connectivity options, including HDMI input; competent Web video device; adequate audio volume and quality.

Laptop components make system run slow; no optical drive; small hard drive; all-in-ones with larger displays available in the same price range.

Design fans in particular will appreciate Lenovo's unique all-in-one that serves best as a dedicated, Web-based home entertainment PC for a small room. The distinct look requires some trade-offs, particularly in performance and the lack of an optical...

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300

 

With a 21.5-inch screen, the IdeaCentre A300 sits at the lower end of the size scale in the big-screen all-in-one PCs category. It is by no means a workhorse; instead, Lenovo designed it to stream Web-friendly high-definition media while looking pretty...

Stunning chassis ; HDMI inputs and TV tuner

Lacks an optical drive

Lenovo's IdeaCentre A300 offers a wealth of connection options in a stunning shell.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 (40181OU) Review and Ratings

 

If design is paramount in your PC-purchasing decision, the IdeaCentre A300 certainly is stunning. But you'll get much better performance and features from competing systems in this price range.

Stunning (if derivative) design ; TV tuner ; Wireless peripherals

Performance lags well behind competition in this price range ; Bluetooth keyboard is cramped ; Pre-installed pop-up-ad software ; No optical drive

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300

 

The IdeaCentre A300 is one of the slimmest all-in-one desktop PCs around with a unique asymmetric design and full-HD screen.

Slim, compact chassis ; Two HDMI and TV Tuner ports ; 22-inch screen, Full-HD 1920x1080 ; Wireless keyboard, mouse

No DVD drive ; Keyboard lacks dedicated number pad

Though it isn't a performance machine, the Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 offers a wealth of connectivity options in a slim and stylish case.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 review

 

It is by no means a workhorse; instead, Lenovo designed the Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 to stream web-friendly high-definition media while looking pretty in a corner of your den.

HP's All-in-One 200 is a strong competitor in the similar price bracket, but the Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 is both capable and attractive. If you don't need a workhorse, and you want a stylish, wireless machine to fit into a tight space, add Lenovo's A300...

Consumer review (epinions.com)

A Fantastic PC!!!

 

I'm not a salesman so I apologize if I sound like one, but I really can't say enough good things about this machine. I must say Lenovo has developed a real winner here...a beautiful, sleek, powerful, and incredibly fast PC that in my opinion ...

Remarkable, compact, impressive, super fast PC with an awesome screen

No optical drive. Keyboard useless for number-crunching work, not enough USB ports
