  • Summary: At a time when PCs really have become consumer commodities, a complete, all-in-one computer like the A600 is quite appealing. The IdeaCentre is a user-friendly product that can easily slip into the role of a shared home PC. No cable messes, no clutter of discrete machines.

Review: Lenovo IdeaCentre A600

Wired
4 June 2009
  • Excerpt: The Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 is shaped that way because it’s flying into the future. The sheer force of its own awesomeness has caused it to bend into a wind-swept, gentle curve, taking with it the hopes and dreams of a new generation of technology enthusiasts. Pffffft. Yeah, right.
  • Pros: Very small footprint. Single-cable design is a blessing for technophobes. Swivel base makes adjustments to viewing angle easy. Six USB ports and 802.11n Wi-Fi, plus FireWire, SD and coaxial connectors.
  • Cons: Keyboard and mouse frequently fall asleep; difficult to awaken. Remote control overly complex and rather homely. Included games feel like an engineer on Quaaludes designed them.

  • Summary: Lenovo's forthcoming IdeaCentre A600 all-in-one looks like Darth Vader's own iMac. The slick black machine has style and cool to spare, and the optional four-in-one remote functions as a regular remote, an air mouse, a Wii-style game controller, and -- get this -- a wireless VOIP phone.

  • Conclusion: The multi-use controller would be great in combination with HDMI input which the spec sheet unfortunately lacks so it won’t be replacing any desktop TVs after all.
