Code SUPERSAVE should drop the price if it shows at £499.99 at basket

This is the NON TOUCH version

I'm posting this as I believe it offers an alternative to the A340 I posted recently.
Apart from the CPU differences this is gives you and extra 4GB RAM over that one (8GB Total) and a 1TB HDD instead of the 125GB SSD. Also includes wireless peripherals instead of the wired alternative. The webcam on this model also pops up and down into the top of the monitor

Both have 1080p 21.5" monitors and webcams built in. This one is £30 more expensive, although does offer something different that might suit others. It adds another option for consideration when looking at all in one machines

thanks neotrix,I Was looking at buying theLenovo IdeaCentre 510A Desktop PC & a monitor however also been looking at this alternative.not sure yet as many reviews states it has a very noisy fan
Does anyone know if this can be wall mounted? the photos suggests it cannot

I can't think of a single reason to get an AIO PC. I assume they have their uses, i just haven't any idea what they are.

I would avoid personally. The other option is better - keep looking.
You'd have to be absolutely bonkers to spend £300 on a system based around a dual-core, pre-Ryzen 15W AMD APU designed for budget laptops. It doesn't even have an SSD to help smooth out the absolutely appalling level of performance on offer. Lenovo should be paying you to dispose of these things.

My boss loves AIOs for their tidiness. It used to be my job to source and acquire new PCs for the office (he's since gone with leasing AIOs), and I would despair at the low specs on the units, as well as the prices we were being quoted.
I don't have this model of IdeaCentre AIO, but a very similar one, although mine is the touchscreen version. Having come from a background of always sourcing the best components and building my own desktop PCs over the past 30 years, I never thought I would consider an all-in-one, but these are fab for what they are. Ok, upgradability is admittedly limited and it probably isn't going to interest a die-hard gamer searching for the last word in graphics performance, but for the majority of people these tick all the boxes. The only essential change over this spec would be to switch the HDD for a SSD - quickly and easily done, or just find a model which comes with SSD if you don't want the hassle.

Performance is good, the screen is excellent and reliability is good.
Never noticed any significant fan noise on my model. Can't really find fault.
Yes, you'll always find a better price for the same spec by buying separately, but for a simple solution I think these are ace.

The spec on this isn't good. The screen is tiny.

I wouldn't have said that a 22" is tiny. It's fine for most purposes.
An AIO will never win spec-wise over a 'proper' separate desktop/tower system, but for pure simplicity and lack of clutter it has its benefits.

TBH, where I see these taking off is for those people (and I can think of plenty of people like this) who don't want the clutter and cables of a desktop system so end up buying a laptop because 'it doesn't take up much room' and can be tided away when not in use. Then, more often than not, the laptop is never moved from the desk where it is setup. An AIO has much of the tidiness and simplicity of a laptop, yet with the screen size of a desktop.

22" was a great screen size 15 years ago.

AIO's have been around for ages, they haven't taken off.

It's still a perfectly usable screen size today for most people. True, AIOs have been around for years, but are now more affordable than ever and the performance gap between them and desktop PCs has narrowed.

Look, I'm not saying they're suitable for everyone, but for many people they are a viable option.
I know several people who have made the switch from laptops and desktops to AIOs and are very happy.

17" is usabable. It doesn't mean it isn't tiny as desktop monitors go.

The spec is fine and is good for the price. There is nothing tiny about the screen. I work on smaller screens every day.
People buy them for the simplicity and compactness. They are common in many libraries and I have friends who have them who don't want bulky desktops yet dont want a laptop with a smaller screen

The main issue is lack of upgradability or if the board blows - which is on of the most common faults. In that case the whole thing is scrapped as it costs more to repair.

repeating the same thing does not make it true.

I buy thousands of screens for work and have only this year gone to 24" from 22". For the vast majority of people 22" is more than adequate. Having a bigger screen means requiring more desk space. for many 24" is too big

You should find a better place to work. I've worked in loads of places who wouldn't invest in IT equipment. Was right irritating.

I'm an IT buyer!!! we invest heavily in IT and are at the forefront of new innovation. I advise people on what is available and what is the best and most current to buy - what is new on the market. I meet with HP, Lenovo, Sennheiser, Plantronics.... I buy millions of pounds of equipment each year - including robots, 3d printers, 3d glasses, optical recognition glasses, automation software.

I'm convinced. The next time my boss asks me what It equipment I want I'll ask him for a £60 monitor.
