Best price I have seen for this Lenovo IdeaCentre 21.5" all-in-one, with free delivery and a decent £60 additional discount using the code. This spec is 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD, with a Pentium 5405U processor. Admittedly not the biggest memory, but it will work for a family home PC.

It has two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, and HDMI so you can connect to another screen / TV if you choose. The stylish bevelled screen will blend into its surroundings nicely.

You'd struggle to find a 21 inch laptop though! I know what you mean, but some people like a desktop.

Completely agree, I feel all in ones have had their day (if they ever really had a day). Desktops are generally for people who like to be able to upgrade elements easily and at a relatively low cost - including the monitor, laptops are more for people who prioritise portability over upgrading. The all-in-one is the worst of both worlds.

I think a good laptop with a good dock set up at home is preferential to this.
get a HP 24 ips monitor for 100 (soemetimes less)

pi 4 is 50 quid and has 4gb memory , can easily run at 2ghz on all 4 cores

install rasbiN and libreoffice (free)

and you will have a quicker machine which is great for web browsing and light office duties

PS pi 4 can be attached to back of monitor so will not be seen

Price is decent but I personally feel 128GB is a little on the small side for a family PC , or even a PC that is just used for browsing, email, office etc.

256GB would have been much better.

I know 128GB will work fine for some though.

Can you keep the pc running and turn the display off?
Would have been good if it was vesa mountable
I think you can just turn the brightness down (not very economic or eco-friendly), or have it plugged into a TV via HDMI and use that display only and have the TV on standby.

It's bigger yes but you are incorrect that is a low power laptop CPU.

I connect my laptop to a 24" monitor... or tv whatever is needed!

I bow down to your knowledge. Apologies.
I would like to just clarify my comments re: laptop processor. I still think this is a good deal and will be a nice snappy pc providing you don't plan on storing loads of data,pictures and videos.
I was intending to use it as a monitor for blueiris (client only) but want to be able to shut the display off when required - would make a cleaner setup. Might go PC stick or mini PC and monitor approach instead. Thanks Op

Agree. I have a laptop I rarely use as a laptop and it's just docked on a shelf.
Surely it's not just my OCD that can't look at that stand...

You can set the power button to make only the display sleep in Windows power options, or create a shortcut to do so, etc, etc.

It is a low power mobile CPU, 2 core, no matter what your term for it....used in laptops, notebooks, AIO's such as this....it most certainly isn't a desktop CPU.
fwiw, Lenovo part number F0EB007CUK seems to correspond to model number A340-22IWL

IWL models only have one RAM slot, so to upgrade to 8GB max will require replacing the existing 4GB stick.

Very decent for a family PC
Would this play sims ok thanks
I use an All In One in a kitchen environment on the worktop. Suits me very well and will probably get another one day. I like the bigger screen and also with the screen being off the ground, there is less chance damage from an accidental spill etc. I can just replace the wireless keyboard every once in a while if it gets too grubby or sticky.

I prefer to use an Ipad if surfing from the sofa etc and have another desktop in the home office upstairs. Having said that I would look for something more powerful than this.

Not if you have a NAS and mount your home folder to the NAS. You would be even good with 64GB
I Prefer one With a DVD Drive
That 128gb is going to fill up very fast. And with only 4gb ram there will be a lot of paging onto the ssd. If you want to future proof then 16gb is a good amount to go for. 8gb bare minimum and at least 240gb ssd drive. Windows alone would take a good chunk of the 128gb. Not too sure about the pi 4 getting better benchmarks. Arm chips are a completely different architecture and ghz is no longer a valid way of measuring processing power because cpu power depends on how many instructions can be carried out in each cycle, not just the frequency of cycles. My 7 year old laptop has about the same spec as this and was £299. I switched the hdd for an ssd. Would never use this as a main machine.

I would try installing cloud os and turn it into a Chromebook like experience. It's a free, very light OS and perfect for viewing websites, watching YouTube and doing basic stuff like simple spreadsheets or docs. It takes only few gigs of space on the ssd and would fly on this hardware. It has its limitations but it's a very good, responsive system that is not resources hungry.
I recently installed it on an old core 2 due laptop in as new condition as i didn't want to get rid of it and it's useable again.

I imagine you can't update the graphics card on this?

Do you know of any All-in-One PCs for less?
I don't have a need for a Laptop, so I use an iMac which is better, though I game on my Windows PC.

I wouldn't look for one and thankfully the fad for them seems to have died down considerably.

Like someone put before, you have the upgrade potential of a laptop with the portability of a desktop. The worst aspects of both. Poor specs, limited uses and crippled upgrade potential do not make this a deal, whether I could find cheaper or not.

It's not like the specs are any good. This is less than low end.

Running windows 10 on this (which most people who would fall for buying these would run) is going to be dreadful after a month or so.

If it was touch-screen, then I could see some uses where a keyboard and mouse aren't viable (small kitchen, workspace, etc), but it isn't.

For the right person it's a hot deal, so heat from me OP
My son wants a pc to eventually buy a HTC vive as we have a vr that I paid a fortune for only to find out he was unable to play games like Minecraft and fnaf on it. I'm very much not tec savvy and just a mum trying to help the kids not follow in my footsteps lol so if anyone can tell me if this would work with a vive or if there's a better one for around that price mark as I can't afford any more, the kids are sending me to the poor house 😔 TIA

No, not even close.


To run VR you are probably looking at £500+ minimum.

So it’s not for you that’s fine. Or me for that matter but this is a good deal and there’s a place for All in Ones for those like my mother who just wants to be able to sit in front of a monitor and surf the web.

For that these specs are more than enough.
looking on the Lenovo website it seems the spec is slightly differnet for this model:

Intel Core i3-8145U Processor ( 2.10GHz 4MB )
Windows 10 Home in S mode

So processor is different? not sure if its better than the Intel Pentium 5405U?

Except that this makes a great homework/studying/youtube computer for a kid, takes little space on the desk and a decent 21" screen, unlike crappy 13" 720p laptops in this price range.

You could get a refurb T3600 for around £200-£300. Wouldn't be all in one but it would be a lot more powerful than this computer and still have a warranty.
