Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 27 Inch All In One Desktop Review
17 April 2014
Summary: As an all in one, the Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 was a powerful machine that easily handled loads without difficulty. The system was whisper quiet, save the whirring of optical discs, and was very nice to look at thanks to its striking system design.
Summary: Final Thoughts
Lenovo has really done a great job with the IdeaCentre A720. Just the design itself is something you really would not expect from Lenovo. If you took all of the Lenovo logos off of the A720 and put it in front of people I don’t think anyone would guess it was a Lenovo machine.
Pros: – Sleek and stylish design, – 27inch touchscreen display, – Display can be made flat, – TV tuner and HDMI in
Cons: – Could have had a larger resolution on the 27inch display, – Speakers are not the best
Conclusion: We fell in love with the A720 when we took it out of the box. It’s a sleek entry into a world of 27-inch all-in-ones that are universally chunky. Even Apple should be jealous. The honeymoon quickly wore off, however, as we started to notice some flaws.
Pros: Beautiful design, Excellent build quality, Good peripherals
Cons: Lacking critical connectivity, Display resolution is too low, Poor audio quality, Below average performance, Not a good value

Pros: Large screen. Slim, attractive design. Blu-ray. HDMI-in and HDMI-out.
Cons: IR dongle for the remote. Could've gone higher resolution with a 27-inch screen. Middling performance on benchmark tests. Bottom Line: The Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 is
Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 is a home run for Lenovo. You won't find a better touchscreen PC for this price, not until Windows 8 makes touchscreen PCs a commodity. For now they're still somewhat of a rarity - and this machine is one of the good ones.
Conclusion: If you do decide to go with this PC, just make sure you have a fair bit of desk space so you can tilt the screen down. Tapping and swiping around such a large surface is a lot more enjoyable with the screen tilted back, so you don't have to raise your arms and elbows so high to reach the upper...
Pros: Massive, responsive 27-inch touch screen, Gorgeous, versatile design, Large touch surface makes a Windows 8 upgrade an exciting prospect
Cons: Mobile components mean performance isn't great for the price, Program load times sometimes feel sluggish, Only two USB 3.0 ports
