Lenovo announces IdeaCentre A300

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 takes the crown for world's thinnest all-in-one PC

With a screen depth of 18.5mm, the svelte Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 has claimed the title of the world's thinnest All-in-One PC. It sports a 21.5-inch, 1920-by-1080 resolution widescreen display, putting the final dimensions at 524 by 396 by 207mm.

Weighing in at 9.5kg, it also sports a rather striking design, setting it apart from its older (and comparatively thicker) sibling, the Lenovo IdeaCentre A600.

Despite the meager footprint Lenovo managed to pack in quite a few features, including a Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB of DDR3-1066 MHz Ram, and up to 500 GB of hard drive space. Intel X4500HD integrated graphics will drive the display, so don't expect to do much gaming.

Connectivity options include 4 USB ports, a multi-format card reader, a FireWire port, and HDMI in and out ports. You'll also find a webcam, integrated 802.11n WiFi and a wireless Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, for minimal cable clutter.

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 All-in-One will be available in February, starting at US$600 — but expect to pay a bit more if you spring for the roomier hard drive, faster processor, and optional extras like the integrated TV tuner, or an external optical drive.

While it certainly looks great, we'll have to wait to see how it stacks up against the rest of our All-in-One PC lineup.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
