Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z review

Lenovo has released its first all-in-one PC. We review the Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z to see if it's any good as a business PC.

A speaker grille runs across the front and we were actually quite impressed by the volume levels we obtained from this. Most of the time though this will likely just provide ample room for sticking post it notes.

Down the left hand side of the machine you'll find a laptop-style DVD Rewriter and this means having to place your discs into the vertical tray, which is a little awkward - there's no slick iMac-style slot loading action here.

Down the right hand side you'll find headphone and microphone sockets and a generous three USB ports. There is also another three USB ports at the rear, along with the Gigabit Ethernet socket and an RS-232 port connecter. Unfortunately, there's no wireless included, which seems something of a missed opportunity and limits where you can place the machine.

A Kensington lock connector is set into the rear, which turns the A70z into an easily pickupable machine and makes it easy to relocate in an office.

Powered by a Dual-Core Pentium E5300 this is no speed demon. It's clearly also not a compact workstation, but for general office tasks, or even modest video editing, it will do a job.
