IBM Thinkcentre A50P P4 2.80ghz, 256mb, 120gb, Cd-rw/dvd-rom Combination, WXP Home, 10/100 Ethernet, 128mbati Radeon 9600 Desktop

 

The ThinkCentre A50p is the first system we've seen with IBM's new ThinkCentre styling, including a utilitarian black case raked toward the back and a handle grip at the top front to make it easier to move from desk to desk. It's approximately the size...

IBM's documentation assumes some familiarity with PC technology. We found less hand-holding information than we've seen in other manuals, but this manual matches the PC well

IBM ThinkCentre A50p

 

The IBM ThinkCentre A50p is all business. Granted, this system is not the fastest among the Pentium 4-powered small business systems we profiled, and it was the only one that lacked Intel's Hyper-Threading (HT) technology. But the IBM's performance is...

Good price. Access IBM button makes self-servicing the system a snap, and IBM's Rapid Restore Ultra is great for those "uh-oh" moments. USB hub on multifunction keyboard is convenient, and FireWire is a welcome addition

CRT monitor, not LCD. But non-Hyper-Threading Pentium 4, integrated (though upgradable) graphics, and DDR333 memory hold back performance

IBM A50p Personal Computer

 

International Business Machines (IBM) was the beginning of personal computing. They started out with the Personal Computer in August of 1981 and since then, they have been supplying users with quality products coupled with great product support. Today...

The IBM A50p desktop system is a seemingly great system.

a beautiful machine

 

this pc is capable of a lot, you just have to be willing to spend the time and maybe a bit more money, Perfect as is for basic home use. I wanted mine for gaming, so i added 2 gigs or ram which brought me up to 2.5 gigs, a new powersupply to run a more...

Cheap! in price anyways, but the quality is what you would expect from high end systems. Capable of great expansion and improvement

does need quite a bit of upgrading

Workstation workhorse

 

Perfect as a small busines workstation: for back-room inventorying, security camera hdd recording, point of sale, or a giant juke-box (like we have). Hope they don't run out of them before we get our next ones.

Enough processing power for our in-store music server (once we added 512mb Kingston memory from Newegg and an old Creative Live! soundcard) ; Designed for corporate deployment, it's well-built, easy to work on and an excellent value. Don't forget it...

No bay for a second hard drive, but there's room in the case for a simple custom install ; Requires upgrade cards for high quality sound, gigabit ethernet, dvi graphics, etc

Impressed so far...

 

I kept trying to slide the case off to open it up... before I finally realize that the case flips up like a hood from the back. It's really a pretty good system once you know how it works... push the two buttons on the side of the case and lift the...

So far I'm very happy with this PC. Pros are that it was very clean, packed very well, booted right up, is built like a battleship, and the price is awesome for what you get. It's also a very quiet machine

Hardly any so far... mine was missing one of the little rubber feet on the bottom of the case too - no biggie

Consumer review (newegg.com)

not bad

 

Works great. Will be a great computer. Don't expect it to be perfect. I recommend to anyone who knows basic PC repair.

The XP Pro SP2 disk is worth more than the computer. Can handle 1GB of memory in each of the 4 slots. Has two SATA connections. Can get specs and drivers at Lenovo's website

Mine came with 512MB of DDR400 PC3200 memory instead of the advertised DDR333 PC2700. It would be great if the motherboard could handle DDR400 but it can only handle up to DDR333 and it doesn't recognize all 512MBs. Will be replacing with 4GB of the...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Recertified: IBM ThinkCentre A50P(8193A3U) Pentium 4 2.40GHz 512MB DDR 40GB Intel Extreme Graphics 2 Windows XP Professional

 

Great deal for the price!

We bought a total of 5 of these units for a business app. Other than the fact that there are no OS restore disks the units seem great

Not enough RAM or Hard Drive Space for most people. Cheap mouse/KB
