Summary: In conclusion, the 4 stars is simply because of the 2 Cons I listed above. I don't believe anything out there is "perfect" just that they should constantly be improved towards their idea of "perfect" and so I rarely give anything 5 stars. Deal with it. Peace :)
Pros: I am an IT Consultant and I purchased 4 of these for a clients office back in April, 2013. From the moment I began configuring them and getting used to the feel of the computer, I knew I had made the right decision. This is the perfect business machine for anyone looking for reliable computers fo...
Cons: The first inconvenience is the price, which I mentioned above. "Then why did you purchase them you ask?" Because of Lenovo's track record, which I mentioned above as well. You see...for me it is well worth the premium as I am very familiar with the Lenovo brand and that is why I purchased these c...
Summary: I have bought and sold thousands of computers and Lenovo All-In-One's are by far my favorite. They pack the punch of a typical desktop except in a sleek and compact design. These are business grade machines and they are not cheap but they are not designed to be thrown away after a year or two.
Pros: Great PC for a basic workstation! Low fan noise and minimal LED lights on front panel. Has single internal speaker for basic sound (mono) Has restore partition for factory reset/reinstall
Cons: Only 3 internal SATA ports on mobo, two of which are already in use for CDROM and system Hard disk. Norton AntiVirus "Scareware" popups often, offers 30 days "free". Easily replaced by Microsoft Security Essentials. Bundled Lenovo system center "Scareware" popups. How often do I really need to sc...
Summary: a little bit port-shy. Not really a con, just a sign of the times, so I'm putting it here +++ Still comes with windows 7!! Win 8 upgrade license is included, if you dare I recommend jumping up to at least 8GB RAM, especially if you upgrade to Win 8
Pros: Has most of the bells & whistles of a high-end machine at a reasonable price. The 64 bit Dual Core Processor (core i3) & a 3.3 GHz clock flies along at a good clip. 4 GB RAM & a 500 GB hard drive gives you a good start. On-board Ethernet is gigabit
Cons: Would have liked a little meatier PSU, may give you trouble with some hi-end graphics cards.
Summary: You will need to purchase a DVD-RW. It only includes a DVD reader $15-20.
Pros: If you buy this tower it will run decent if you clean out the large number of Lenovo utilities. It is inexpensive and includes Windows 7 & 8.
Cons: I bought 2 of them and installed all of the Lenovo updates using the Lenovo system update utility. At this point I removed about 8-9 pieces of bloatware. I remove all of the Lenovo utilities except the recovery disk creator. I also removed Evernote and the Intel App Center. Once it is cleaned up ...
Summary: Spend an extra $50 and get a way better buy. Stay away from this turtle.
Pros: None, not even the price.
Cons: Absolutely the slowest PC with a G640 I have ever used. Taking it to 8GB of ram does not even help. Have to install Windows updates 1 at a time because it is so under powered. Total was of money.
Summary: Unless you are going to give them away as door prizes to children, not worth the hassle.
Pros: Nice black color.
Cons: This computer is so slow I can't believe it. I have to install windows updates 1 at a time or they fail. I purchased 5 and they all are the same. Tried 8GB of ram, made it a little faster but still not good enough for business use.
Cons: Comes with a Windows 8 sticker, no windows 7 license anywhere to be found. When they first arrived I thought they send me the wrong model and call support but when I turned it on it had Windows 7 Pro. I don't like that there's no license included incase something happens and I have to reinstall t...
