  • Summary: 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 drive, but if you're willing to sacrifice function for a bit of form, you'll find the IdeaCentre A300 charming and generally capable.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: Laptop components make system run slow; no optical drive; small hard drive; all-in-ones with larger displays available in the same price range.

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