Lenovo IdeaCentre A600

 

Preview: Lenovo has brought its A-game to the all-in-one PC party. And we're liking its style…

Great-looking design. Ingenious multi-function remote

Best features are optional extras. Price could be an issue

Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 review

 

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 attempts to blur the line between your PC and TV, and has an impressive combination of features and performance with a price tag to match.

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 is a very good attempt to fuse together a television set with a PC, and it's highly recommendable to anyone interested in having the best of both worlds. And with the added bonus of Wii-like gaming with the wonder remote,...

Lenovo IdeaCentre A600

 

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 is shaped that way because it's flying into the future. The sheer force of its own awesomeness has caused it to bend into a wind-swept, gentle curve, taking with it the hopes and dreams of a new generation of technology...

Very small footprint. Single-cable design is a blessing for technophobes. Swivel base makes adjustments to viewing angle easy. Six USB ports and 802.11n wi-fi, plus FireWire, SD and coaxial connectors

Keyboard and mouse frequently fall asleep; difficult to awaken. Remote control overly complex and rather homely. Included games feel like an engineer on Quaaludes designed them

Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 desktop review

 

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 is Lenovo's premium all-in-one desktop PC, and some of its highlights include a 21.5in full-HD monitor, multifunctional remote controller, and a nifty wireless keyboard with touchpad.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 All-in-One PC

 

No question about it: Lenovo's IdeaCentre A600 looks unique. The combination of a sharp and angular design, an ultrathin chassis, and a 21.5-inch display definitely stands out against the more traditional "one big flat panel" look that competing...

Excellent display ; Superior upgradability

No touchscreen

A lush display, unmatched upgradability, and extras such as an HDTV tuner, and a 4-in-1 remote make the A600 hard to resist.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 (3011-4BU)

 

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 (3011-4BU) packs in technology you would think would cost much more than it actually does.

Large-screen all-in-one. VeriFace log-on software. "Healthcare" software protects user from eyestrain. Lenovo OneKey Recovery. Full 1080p HD. Good value for the dollar. Can actually perform 3D graphics tests. Remote has motion control, Media Center,...

Bottom edge is a finger crusher. Limited tilt. Has a "Jay Leno chin." Only 90-day Trend Micro Internet Security subscription.

The most significant improvement is the inclusion of a Blu-ray player. Blu-ray movies look great when played on the A600, and since the screen has a 1,920-by-1,080 resolution, you're seeing all the pixels you paid for (unlike with the Dell Studio One...

Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 3011 review

 

Our $749 Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 review unit comes with a 21.5-inch LCD, but Lenovo also sells a variety of other A600 configurations, including a lower-end model with the same display for $679. You might look into the $679 version for pure...

High-resolution 21.5-inch LCD; semiuseful facial recognition software; replaceable memory, hard drive, and optical drive.

Faster large-screen all-in-one available from Averatec for the same price; clunky design can pinch fingers.

The heart of Lenovo's IdeaCentre A600 is in the right place, offering a 21.5-inch LCD-based all-in-one for less than $800. But a faster competitor and a careless design turns us off from this particular A600 configuration. You might consider a...

Lenovo IdeaCentre A600

 

The A600 is a slim all-in-one desktop with a built-in screen. The chassis is just over an inch thick at its slimmest point, increasing to 2.4 inches at its thickest. The system's grayish-black body is bowed, curving out about a third of the way from...

Large-screen all-in-one. Cheap for an all-in-one. VeriFace log-on software. "Healthcare" software protects user from eyestrain. Lenovo OneKey Recovery. Cheap for a large-screen all-in-one desktop. Full 1080p HD

Bottom edge is finger crusher. Slow CPU. Integrated graphics. Won't run 3D tests. Limited tilt. Wired keyboard and mouse. Has a "Jay Leno chin." Only 90-day Trend Micro Internet Security subscription

With a love-it-or-hate-it design, the Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 gives the value PC buyer an all-in-one option that's more powerful than that cheap nettop, though power users will want more.
