Excerpt: The stylish design of the Lenovo IdeaCentre B540 is one that catches our eye in tandem with its budget price tag. The 23-inch 1080p touch screen works well with Windows 8 and looks great for multimedia viewing. Performance is good, especially for the price, but it does make a slight compromise with a Core i3 CPU.
Pros: Good value, Beautiful 23-inch 1080p HD display, Touch screen responsiveness, Solid performance
Cons: Included keyboard could be better, No HDMI-input
Conclusion: If Best Buy had priced its version of the IdeaCentre B540 above $1,000 like so many other big-screen all-in-ones, we would say it offered a good feature set, decent performance, and sleek design at a reasonable price. At just $899, this system becomes that much more attractive. You should certainly cross-shop Lenovo's other IdeaCentre offerings as well as the competitors (especially the sale-prone HP Envy TouchSmart series) if you need a more powerful CPU or can't live...
Pros: Handsome design, Huge 1080p touch screen, A good deal for $899
Cons: So-so keyboard, No Blu-ray player, No DirectX 11 graphics, No HDMI input
Conclusion: If you're absolutely sure you want a PC/TV combo, and you've got the money in your pocket, we can see no reason to buy any all-in-one other than the Lenovo IdeaCentre B540p. It's just about the pinnacle of the genre, and we reckon the impetus is now on Lenovo's competitors to catch up. If our ethical compass weren't so finely attuned, we'd hang on to our review model forever. But we probably wouldn't shell out the cash, because we're cheap.
Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaCentre B540 makes a decent enough showing against the competition, but the older processor holds it back a little in terms of performance – although the CPU is obviously part of the reason why Lenovo has been able to pitch the PC’s price at a decent level. On the other hand, there isn't a lot to make the B540 stand out either, aside from a reasonable price tag.
Pros: 1,920 x 1,080 10-point touchscreen, Easy to service, Reasonably priced
Cons: Could use more tilt range, Older Intel HD Graphics 2000, No HDMI input
Conclusion: Este equipo combina una pantalla amplia, un buen rendimiento y una buena capacidad de almacenamiento, así que se recomienda para editores de video o ingenieros que trabajen con programas demandantes.
Pros: Su buen nivel de procesamiento de información, su amplia pantalla y su capacidad para reproducir contenido en 3D.
Cons: Su cuerpo es algo robusto, lo que la hace pesada. El teclado y el mouse son alámbricos.
