Conclusion: With a slew of desktops on the market sporting the same CPU and similar graphics performance, the Lenovo IdeaCentre K430 stands out mainly because of its USM dock, reasonably quick boot time, and better-than-average internal expansion. If those features are appealing to you, it’s definitely worth considering. But keep in mind that the PC has only six USB ports, and its gaming performance will often limit you to medium settings and lowered resolutions.
Pros: Good productivity performance, Great internal-expansion options considering size, USM slot for compatible drives from Seagate and Verbatim
Cons: No Blu-ray drive, Graphics performance could be better, 12GB of RAM is overkill for most mainstream tasks
