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?

GPU makes this small PC a performance giant

Dramatically improve the most important aspects of your PC experience with discrete graphics. The Ideacentre 620s offers NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX1050 Ti, allowing you to render pictures, edit video, or play games with ease – while benefitting from a faster, more productive PC. With the GTX1050 Ti, harness the speed, power, and efficiency of 768 NVIDIA CUDA® cores, with 4 GB GDDR5 memory.

Faster, smoother, and easier

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 options. You can select up to 256 GB PCIe SSD to optimize speed, 2 TB HDD for maximum storage, or get the best of both worlds with hybrid storage (256 GB PCIe SSD plus 2 TB HDD).

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.

Brought it a few month back at the same price, excellent desktop and tiny form. Runs fast but don't install the free mccafy trash as it will slow it right down. Bit fiddly to upgrade too bit that's the only gripe. Comes with free wireless keyboard and matching mouse too, well mine did.
this is the kinda desktop im looking for
got this about a year ago same price , but with a nvidia 1050ti graphics card , have upgraded my memory to 16gb , stuck in an m3 solid state hard drive and got a cheap i7 7700t cpu to replace the i5 , runs sweet and is so small and compact yet still able to play all the latest games, changing the parts can be abit of a pain but can be upgraded , sure there are youtube vids to show you how if you ever wanted too.
Good price but would prefer an SSD.

You can upgrade it to a SSD,also i think there is a version with SSD but costs more.
This has a m3 socket on the motherboard , can just slot a solid state in that and keep the hdd as storage

The i3 is £299, the i5 is £329, either way it’s still a good deal

It has optane,

Which transforms your spinning hard drive into a 1TB SSD,

do the research on you tube,

It is so good there is no difference in speed if you also add a SSD,

just a waste of money buying an ssd for this PC,

I paid £420 for mine in feb,

After turning off all updates and anti virus cloud and machine based virus detection,

I also re installed windows 10 without all the fluff from Lenovo and setting up optane properly from scratch,

It runs noticeable better with a fresh install of windows 10,

Only do that if you know what you are doing as you can wreck the PC,

It is the most stable quiet machine i have ever had,

I run an ultra wide LG 29" monitor with split screen function and it has definitely improved my productivity,

It boots with optane in about 40 seconds with the spinning hard drive.
Wtf this looks bargain
Decent spec for the i5 version (£329). Wouldnt bother with the i3 one (£299)

40 seconds is awful compared to an SSD, I have the cheapest SSD I could find when I built my PC like 7 years ago and that boots in less than 15

Does the i3 have the 1050i?
xawoger29/11/2019 16:49

According to the website no.


The i5? Its hard to find full specs.. Some say yes, some no. Thanks
I bought the i3 7100T version about 3 months ago. Bought from Amazon seller for £360.Brilliant bit of kit

There are numerous different specs for the 620s, some have the1050ti some don't. Try Laptop Outlet on eBay as they usually have versions with graphics cards, though wait until eBay have one of their 20% off events.

i7 processor has to be better!
Can the GPU be upgraded?

Disassembly is possible, though it has a lot of screws. The problem is that even if this is using a standard full-size PCI-E slot for the GPU, it doesn't seem likely that you could fit anything better in that tiny case. And even if you somehow did, you would have overheating issues -look how tight everything is here. Another obstacle is that you would need an external power supply for it anyway, since the GTX1050 Ti doesn't need dedicated input, but all others do.

However it shouldn't be too hard to install a 2nd GPU externally, using its NVME bus (check egpu.io for info). If you go down that route, I advice to keep away from the EXP GDC adapters that seem to be the most popular and getting an ADT R43SG instead (it cost me about £55 and took some searching on ebay to find -they were much more expensive on alliexpress). Two EXP GDC that I tried had major QC issues, with one not working at all and with the others' ribbons not having effective shielding, causing various hiccups. The R3G worked perfectly straight away -its better engineering is visible even to the naked eye.

For such a setup the asrock DeskMini 110 is significantly smaller and easier to work with, however. Of course this one would be winning if it provides a full-size PCI-E slot, since you could just extend it with a ribbon and it would have more bandwidth than the NVME, but I somehow doubt it does.

Many thanks!
Would this (either the i3 or the i5 version) be ok as a gaming pc? Or would it need upgrades to the graphics card and ram that would make buying a dedicated gaming machine a better bet? A friend is looking for a pc for online gaming but only has a limited budget. Not seen any good gaming pc deals this Black Friday so far.

Ok if you get the 1050ti version. Depends on your/his expectations. You are paying a bit extra for the compact size
Why not go for all in one instead of this?
So can anyone confirm if this comes with the 1050i (i5)?

No.

Full price on amazon is £380. This is not that cheap.
is TCB available or does discount code void the cashback?
Is the i7 model worth the price? Didn't say which graphics card is in it

This was the I got , sorry it is an m2 socket not m3 lol
Can someone kindly explain what makes this such a great deal?

It would be a great deal if it actually came with the GTX1050 Ti graphics card... But it doesn't.
Could I squeeze a GTX 1650 into this? or what else would be best size/budget/heat wise?

More specifically, I'm looking for best bang for buck.
