Lenovo IdeaCentre A320 – Incredible Looks, Mediocre PerformanceDesktops — on September 27, 2011 at 11:59 pm | Comment Now
The modern AIO (All-in-one) desktop PCs are incredible space saver if you won’t want huge boxes taking all your desk real estate. The all new Lenovo Ideacentre A320 that we are covering here is one of the fashionable PCs that we’ve had in our lab.
The Lenovo Ideacentre A320 has a lustrous white cease and the chrome trim about the boundaries of the 21.5 in screen gives the A320 incredibly stunning looks. It should be noted that the A320 isn’t a touchscreen model and hence the device must be controlled using the keyboard and mouse supplied with it.
The slim stand of the Lenovo Ideacentre A320 has the dispensation unit, all the exterior connectors and at the same time the power hole for all the exteriors small mains adapter ‘element’. There also is a vigorous pillar supporting the monitor at the back right end side of the stand, and it allows the screen to pivot vertically and horizontally a little bit, but we would say that it was a tad tough to adjust.
The Lenovo Ideacentre A320 has a 750 GB hard disk and an Core i3 processor of Intel with 4GB RAM. The graphics of the system are taken care by an included HD 3000 chip of Intel, which wasn’t all that good and wasn’t all that smooth in running games and videos with demanding graphic requirement.
All the connectors for the system are positioned at the rear end and left rim of the bottom, including a strange HDMI input docks, this lets you to plug in a Blue-ray player or a gaming console to view on the screen. The system also has an HDMI output signal for connecting a second monitor or a TV.
The system has touch-sensitive screen controls for selecting an input and adjusting the brightness. The Sound performance for the system was pretty disappointing.
The Lenovo Ideacentre A320 is shipped with nice Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, but the keyboard for the system makes use of a laptop outline with an Fn key to select some symbols. There also is an inherent TV tuner having remote control and an external aerial connector.
The Lenovo Ideacentre A320 has 4 USB ports out of which the two makes use of the quick USB3 standard but unluckily the remote control adapter and matching outer DVD writer that comes with the system takes 3 of the USB sockets. There also is the customary microphone and headphone sockets and a memory card reader.
The Lenovo IdeaCentre A320 connects to all the wireless and wired networks, and in addition with Windows 7 operating system, the Lenovo also offers a wide range of useful maintenance and disaster recovery software, but there isn’t any office software.
The Lenovo IdeaCentre A320 also has been given some gimmicky touch such as a tool which makes use of the webcam to figure out whether you are sitting too more or less closer to the screen or not. The small white webcam action light is poorly set at eye level, although, and was putting-off.
Finally we would say that the Lenovo IdeaCentre A320 has incredible looks, but delivers significant poor performance than the similarly priced models such as the Apple iMac hand hence its worth considering in case you want a PC which looks a tad different.
