Review 1 for IdeaCentre A720 Best Seller
wow..awsome..worth the purchase
Date:June 7, 2012
"So I receive my unit today and I am impressed. The weight and size of the screen is very impressive. Windows 7 works very well but I'm going to load windows 8 preview on it soon. The 10 finger touch is very responsive and accurate. I went ahead and loaded the windows 7 touch surface pack and it has some of the best software to display this system. I just love how it folds down flat.. I recommend this system anyone who need an all in one machine. Plays blu rays, cpu, tv, and can even connect a xbox 360 to it.. keep an eye on the price if you decide to get one as lenovo release coupon promotions and if your a student, check the price there also."
"It's worth it with the TV tuner model, i--e Model 25647CU, as I can hook up to any device to it and enjoy cinematic view of my photo or videos. Astounding picture clarity, I am spending less or no time in front of my 52" Sony Bravia LEDHDTV. Of course the specs are better there, yet my sitting so close to this 27" inc screen seems to be 70"+ screen, yep, there is that Vow factor, to make me feel less remorseful for the money spent on this."
"I've built my own computers since the 90's, and this is the first computer I've purchased from a vendor since the first Pentium came out. I bought it for the design - a very attractive and functional all-in-one, featuring Core i7 Ivy Bridge, and a very interesting touch technology that will be perfect for Windows 8.
The first thing I did was replace the hard drive with a 256GB SSD, the machine was easy to open and access everything (HDD, CPU, optical driver, RAM) if you like to monkey with these things. To install all the drivers, the machine comes with a handy driver disk which installs all the drivers Windows 7 doesn't install automatically - very nice.
A few minor issues - the machine doesn't come with a software accessories disk, which for this special multi-touch machine is critical. If you don't wipe the hard drive it's not an issue, but a power user who wipes the drive will miss all the multi-touch games, touch front end, blu-ray player, etc. After spending 30 minutes on the phone with support, they finally figured out that these software accessories are only accessible if you use the restore disk from Lenovo - a major problem if you like your own OS installs.
The other minor issue - the keyboard arrived without the battery cap. Basically the machine would have been unusable, except that I had extra keyboards lying around. Lenovo's shipping me a new keyboard however, so problem isn't a big deal for me.
So far I like the machine, and aside from the irritating lack of a software accessory CD, the only flaw is the monitor. 1920x1080 is simply not high enough resolution for a 27" screen. It's probably good enough for most people for light personal use and media watching, but if you use the machine all day for work you'll miss extra pixels available on a 2560x1440 display. With a higher resolution display, this would be THE machine to have, nothing else would come close - I can't say enough about the design and ease of access."
"This is by far the worst PC I have ever owned. Yes the 10 point touch screen is a great gimmick and the system looks fantastic, but the actual running of the machine if you want to do anything other than browse the web and check emails is absolutely awful. The HD input is also terrible and gives a nasty feedback when in use. I recommend looking elsewhere."
