How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

With support for 3D movies and games, a built in Blu-ray player, an HD tuner and HDMI input, the Lenovo IdeaCentre B520 is one of the best entertainment PC's in its price range. It even includes a composite video input, which can be used to hook up older, analog components, like that VHS player sitting in the basement. It also has HDMI output so you can add a second display to supplement the built-in 23-inch screen. That display happens to be a multitouch-capable touchscreen, which comes in handy in at least one way: the B520 comes with a bundled copy of Angry Birds. While the B520 won't appeal to hardcore PC gamers, with a starting price under $1,000, it could be a great starter media PC for most other users.
