Boasting a beefy 23-inch, full HD 1080p, touchscreen display with “surface acoustic wave (SAW)” technology is Lenovo’s rather luscious -looking new IdeaCentre A700 all-in-one PC.
Not a fatty
At just 2cm wide at its thinnest point and just over 6cm at its thickest, this machine won’t hog your desktop, and there’s a fair bit of tech packed into its lithe frame too.
The A700 is offered in a host of configurations powered by Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors, with up to 8GB of PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM at 1066MHz, motoring along on Windows 7.
Hard drive storage starts at 500GB right up to a 1TB, and graphics are handled by Intel on the cheapest model, rising up to a more capable ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5750 on the priciest model.
Sound is taken care of by Dolby surround sound and onboard JBL speakers.
Blu for you
The top of the range number laughs in the face of Apple by including a Blu-ray drive for your cinematic pleasure, while other models come with DVD recorder optical drives.
Connectivity includes Wi-Fi, HDMI in and out ports and there’s a rather natty a 3-in-1 mouse that operates as a regular mouse, as well as an air pointer and a motion-drive games controller.
We think these look rather lush, and the Lenovo IdeaCentre A700 is available now in the UK, with prices beginning at £999.
We couldn’t find a UK Lenovo product page, so here’s the US one.
