"I chose Lenovo A700 as my desktop replacement between these options : - Apple iMac 27" - Sony Vaio L series 24" - HP TouchSmart 600 23"
p.s. : when I bought my A700 , there was no HP TouchSmart 610 quad series !!!
Apple iMac and Lenovo A700 are more beautiful than the others . but A700 has more ports , and BD drive . iMac is the white beauty and A700 is the black beauty !
Sony Vaio , has Bravia engine , so the movie quality is the best . far away !
HP TouchSmart 600 , isn't in the same class . but HP TouchSmart 610 quad , is a real AiO !
the first negative point of A700 is the bluetooth device ! unfortunately it's BroadCom . that's the worst bt card I've ever seen ! but if you can set it up , then your wireless keyboard & mouse , will work very well ! just like a wired one . ( I don't know why doesn't Lenovo use another bt card ? the common problem with BroadCom bt cards is overheating !!! that means you can work with them only few minutes ! can you believe it ? ofcourse they tell you : we change the bt card ; but it's so funny ! )
the second , is the low performance . maybe a high speed dual core CPU works better than a low speed quad core ?! mine's core i7 ( 1.73 ~ 2.9 ) ; and I'm disappointed !!! I prefer core i5 3.6 !
the touchscreen is one of the best . you can do almost everything with your fingers . they say , HP is better but I like A700 touch features , too .
the picture quality isn't bad but I'm not very pleased ! I really prefer Sony Vaio .
the ports are the most complete range between AiOs . there are every port you may need .
the TV tuner works very well too . you can watch any channel , when you're working with other pages and windows . it's a real TV/PC system .
the hard drive , fans and slot drive are noisy , if you like to work at night !
anyway , I like it , except the cheap bluetooth card !"
