Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 and Multimedia Keyboard review

Lenovo seems to have developed a clear two-pronged strategy: for business, it leans on the knowhow and tradition it purchased from IBM with the demure Think line, and for the consumer end, it's developed its own, oftentimes flamboyant, Idea range of computers. Prime example of the latter is the IdeaCentre A300, which features an edge-to-edge glass screen, chrome accenting aplenty, and an unhealthily thin profile. As such, it's one of the more unashamed grabs for the hearts and minds of desktop aesthetes, so we had to bring it in for a test drive and see what we could see. Lenovo also sent us one of its diminutive Multimedia Keyboard remotes to have a play around with. Follow the break for our review of both.

Pros
  • 1080p screen and TV tunerAttractive, slimline exteriorCompetent performance in most tasks
Cons
  • Bloatware-saddled boot timeNot the best build quality in the worldIssues with keyboard lag and sound output
