Thought this was a decent spec for the price, and nice little tidy desktop package. No dedicated GPU in this, but would be a great for productivity, such as a small office, or as a multi purpose PC for the home.

  • Intel Core i5 (7th Gen) 7400T / 2.4 GHz Max Turbo Speed 3.0 GHz Quad Core Processor
  • 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD+16GB Optane Memory
  • Windows 10 Home 64-bit
  • Condition: Brand New

Big power, small size

Compact but powerful, the Ideacentre 620s packs the power of a full desktop into a slim 3-liter shell. We’ve packed lots of big features into this unassuming profile, including two-display multitasking support, hybrid storage options, and the speed of Intel® Optane™ Memory. It's also equipped with a Dolby Premium audio system and Far Field Microphones, allowing you to converse with Cortana from across a room.


Imagine big with a small desktop

At 3 liters and under 9 pounds, Ideacentre 620s is 83% smaller than a traditional tower. It fits comfortably on any desk or beside your TV, keeping a moderate profile without sacrificing functionality. What will you do with all the space it saves you?


Experience Full Desktop Performance

Experience full desktop performance with the power of a 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processor. We’ve paired that with revolutionary Intel® Optane™ memory* – an adaptable system accelerator made specifically for that processor. Intel Optane Memory recognizes the files and applications you use most frequently and allows them to open and respond faster by storing them in Optane Memory chips, making everything you do faster, smoother, and easier.


Big or fast storage? Go for both!

The Ideacentre 620s is small…but not when it comes to storage. 1TB storage, or get the best of both worlds.


Cool and dust-free, for a healthier system

With its chrome base design, you won’t have to worry about your desktop overheating. And its cooling system allows air to enter from the bottom and exit through the rear, reducing large amounts of dust that get inside your desktop and improving its life expectancy.


Experience mixed Reality

Virtual reality? Try Mixed Reality. Get ready for amazing experiences that draw elements of your surroundings into a virtual world. Windows Mixed Reality brings you immersive games and stunning 360° content, available for the very first time in October 2017. The Ideacentre 620s provides stable-power Mixed Reality; simply plug in your Lenovo Zone headset and step into a new world.


Streamline your desktop setup with only two cords

No more arranging multiple cords around your desktop: just plug in the power supply and connect to the monitor of your choice. A wireless keyboard and mouse will keep your setup clean and simple. And when you need extra connectivity support, we offer 4 USB 3.0 ports, a 3-in-1 card reader, an RJ-45 connector, and a 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, for easy and fast data transmission.


Easier multitasking with support for two displays

Connect your Ideacentre 620s with up to 2 displays at work or at home, one for work and one for entertainment. No need to switch between programs; we make multitasking easy for you. We also put your combo audio jack at the front, so you can easily plug in your headphones.


Surround sound effect crafted by Dolby Premium

Unlike other compact PCs, Ideacentre 620s is equipped with treble and bass speakers. And with Dolby Premium audio engineering, the Ideacentre 620s delivers an immersive sound experience.


Cortana answers from across the room

Windows Cortana is your own voice-activated digital assistant – one who is prepared to answer questions, open necessary apps, set reminders, and even read appointments from your calendar. And with our Far Field Microphones, Cortana can hear you from up to four meters away. Need directions to an appointment but short on time? Ask out loud from across the room as you get ready – the moment you need something, your device is ready to help.


Yes, you can upgrade!

We’ve given you to access the CPU, GPU, storage and memory in just two steps. First, simply slide off the cover, then use a screwdriver to open the inner shell. Et voilà!


Mobile access to your favorite content

Lenovo Family Cloud gives your family wireless access to secure data storage on your Ideacentre 620s. Quickly and effortlessly sync your photos, video, and music between PC and other devices via the Lenovo Family Cloud application. Multiple users can browse their accounts from anywhere within the home. We think you’ll also enjoy one-click social sharing and our auto-tag technology for easy photo searches.

looks like a jacked up mouse droid.
Perfect, was on the lookout for a small form factor desktop
I think this is a fantastic product. This thing is tiny, only 23 cm tall.

Pasted from Amazon.

"This is a great PC in a very small unit (only about 23cm high) – fast, powerful and very quiet. It was up and running in minutes and performs very well, even with pretty heavyweight applications (such as Photoshop). I bought it from Amazon along with a Samsung curved monitor and a Jelly Comb compact keyboard, and it’s great setup on my small desk."
is there anyway to bump graphics up on these?
Interesting... possible to stick a SSD in one of these?

You can stick an SSD in anything with a sata port

True, BUT, will there be enough space inside this thing for that though?, or ...

Because, according to this:

It's ONLY 23 cm big? - and I'm sure that a 2.5 hdd/ssd will essentially take up be bulk of the OP's PC's physical 'internal space'? (unless ofcourse it's using an M.2. hard drive configuration instead or something?), or ... thanx.

Ps.
@win26 , are you able to confirm anything relating to any of my aforementioned above, etc?, thanx.

As the PC does look veryyyyy cute!, and I do like how it look's (and it does appear to be kinda powerful too like?). :-)

Pps.
I can NOT see what type of display port this PC thing uses ...

I can't for example see any HDMI connection, or whatever? (or am I missing a trick here?, lol).

Cold - Zombieload.
I have one of these . I fitted a m.2 ssd - it is not an easy job took me about 4-5 hrs or so. You have to take the whole thing apart piece by piece to get to the ssd slot then put it all back together again.

Hi amour3k, upgrades are possible. Has HDMI and 2 display ports.

If you want something particularly cute and Intel-based and pre-built and including Windows, and don't need real performance for anything, this looks like an option.

I wouldn't want a 1TB HDD for my boot drive nowadays, regardless of the 16GB Optane module. But if you don't mind some seriously slow storage backed by a relatively small cache then there are worse options. And for general office stuff, or just ebay/email/Facebook etc, this Lenovo will suffice.

If you want raw performance, or upgradability, repairability (especially as the Lenovo has a 1 year warranty), or value-for-money, this is not the right choice.

The i5 7400T is significantly slower than the standard i5 7400.

As an example of why the Lenovo represents poor value for money (but isn't an Apples to Apples comparison because it requires slotting together like Lego and following some step-by-step instructions)...

An ASRock DeskMini A300 based system from CCL for £384.91 with a Ryzen 5 2400G (£123) would eviscerate this Lenovo at virtually any task.

The A300 is 155 x 155 x 80 mm - less than 2L in volume.

Even the Ryzen 3 2200G (£80) would vastly outperform the 7400T for almost anything, and you could throw the money you saved at a geek to assemble and install it for you - if you loath the thought of assembling your own machine.

The Athlon 200GE at £39 would give the 7400T a run for its money depending on the task. £300.

It won't be as pretty, or ready-to-go out of the box, as the Lenovo. But it will be tiny, upgradable, and will make the Lenovo look like it's going backwards.

Unscrew and unclip the shroud from any of the included CPU coolers and it'll fit just fine in the A300 btw.

And that's if you need something tiny. If you don't need something shoe-box-y, then it's even cheaper and faster. CCL will throw together a Alpha Pro Value with a AMD Ryzen 5 2400G, 8GB DDR4 2400MHz, 480GB Crucial BX500 SSD, for £355 delivered with a 3 year warranty. You'd need to install Windows yourself (as CCL charge £100 for that) but with Windows 10, it's trivially easy.

The review model with a 4GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti did, the one in the OP certainly doesn't! Single HDMI, single DP. And obviously nowhere near the graphical performance.
Intel skull canyon i7, i have mine mounted on the back of my monitor using the VESA mount.

For small form factor I don’t think you can get any better......

LOL. Compact = a real PITA to get in to. I've added the maintenance manual to the deal post. (and here)

Does optane help with disk speed? I would be doubtful. Certainly best to add M.2 SSD (as quoted) which I presume is easy to make the boot drive? (1. image HDD to M.2 then 2. tell BIOS to boot from the M.2)
