Thinking of making the move to Windows 8 but still wanting a desktop for your desk? The Lenovo IdeaCentre B540 is an amazing all-in-one that is light, quiet, powerful and responsive.
As I used the PC the first thing I noticed is that it is fast and has a highly responsive touch interface (it has a ten point touch interface). I liked the way it felt to inrteract with Windows 8 tiles and apps. I also liked that the front was completly covered by the glass (no bezel to block the far edges from touch).
Another thing that I like about this all-in-one is that there is ONE cord (the power cord). It’s extremly simple and fast to setup and to move (weighing only 23 lbs).
This is not a PC for gaming enthusiests but has the power to quickly launch and support anything else you may need (spreadsheets, documents, bookkeeping software as well as games that don’t require high-end graphics cards and faster processors). That said, it packs pleanty of storage, processing power and memory along with a beautiful display.
Some quick specs:
Processor: Core i3-3220
Memory: 6GB DDR3 (upgradable to 8GB)
Storage: 1TB SATA Hard Drive
Screen Resolution:1920 x 1080 (Full HD)
Wireless Keyboard and Mouse
1 Year Lenovo Waranty
The bottom line is that you get a lot of bang for the buck with this all-in-one. For $899 you get a great Windows 8 experience, a fast PC and a beautiful display – you can spend more and get better but this is a great entry into the new world of Windows 8 touch.
