Lenovo's latest consumer-grade workstation makes the most of a unique form-factor.

Announced ahead of this year's IFA in Berlin, Lenovo say that the IdeaCentre A540 is modeled after the asymmetry of a Cypress tree. Available in two sizes (24-inches and 27-inches), the IdeaCentre A540 is an all-in-one Windows PC with an eye-catching brass metallic stand.

As mentioned, there's also a Qi wireless charger integrated into the base of the unit.

Under the hood, the specs of the IdeaCentre A540 suggest it'll be pretty versatile. You can get it either an Intel 9th Gen Core CPU or one of AMD's Ryzen CPUs. It supports up to 16GBs of RAM and 1TB of M.2 SSD storage plus up to 2TB of traditional hard drive storage.

If you opt for the 24-inch model, you'll get AMD's Radeon RX 540X Graphics. If you go for the larger 27-inch A540, you get a slight bump upwards to Radeon RX 540X .

The Ryzen-powered Lenovo A540 goes all the way up to a Ryzen 5 3400 GE processsor but is only available in a 24-inch size.

Although the new Lenovo A540 is due to launch globally in September, Lenovo Australia haven't detailed local pricing or availability just yet. Expect more news to come with next week's IFA conference in Berlin.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
