Lenovo just announced four new all-in-one (AIO) desktop computers equipped with IPS displays. The flagship of the group is the super-widescreen Lenovo B750 (pictured above), which delivers the world’s first 29” 21:9 display.
The Lenovo B750 looks distinctive right out of the box, with a 29” Wide Full HD (2560×1080), 21:9 super-widescreen, frameless display supporting IPS wide-view technology, perfect for viewing movies and videos. The viewing experience is further enhanced by the inclusion of a JBL designed 2.1 speaker system with built-in 20W subwoofer and Dolby Home Theater. Lenovo includes other enhancements to optimize the super-widescreen display including Lenovo Split Screen, allowing users to view and work with multiple windows simultaneously and Lenovo Eye Distance.The Lenovo B750 packs up to a speedy 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor and powerful NVIDIA GeForce GTX760A 1GB graphics as standard.
The Lenovo B750 is highly adaptable and expandable, and functions equally well as either a powerful PC or multimedia center. With an integrated DVD reader/writer or Blu-Ray Disc drive, a wide range of connection options including integrated Bluetooth 4.0 (optional) and Wi-Fi, a 6-in-1 card reader and optional HDMI out/in (optional) ports, the system makes it easy to manage and access photos, videos, music and more with the added convenience of Lenovo Motion Control which simplifies common tasks using instinctive hand gestures. The space-saving system is unobtrusive at just11.73 in/298mm thin, while slide open rear panels make expanding memory and storage simple.
The Lenovo A530 AIO desktop is a slim, space-saver that sports a widely adjustable screen, which tilts from -5to 90?allowing use as a traditional PC or as a flat, table PC using the device’s 10-point multi-touch display for games and entertainment. The 23” Full HD (1920×1080) 16:9 IPS, wide-view display measures only 0.8in/21.5mm thin, at its thickest point, and retains its low-profile even when folded flat on top of the 1.3-inch/32mm base. The entire device is clad in an all-aluminum chassis for strength and style. The combination of wide viewing angles, a fold-flat screen with multi-mode functionality and its slim profile make the A530 an ideal productivity desktop which can morph into a family entertainment and gaming center with a simple push.
The Lenovo A530 is powered by an up to 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor which provides plenty of power to handle multimedia and games. For storage and sharing, users can choose up to 8GB DDR3 memory, up to 1TB HDD or 1TB SSHD storage with integrated 8GB SSD cache and take advantage of the A530’s full range of connections including integrated Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 6-in-1 card reader and HDMI in/out portsfor connecting to other devices. With an integrated DVD reader-writer or Blu-Ray Disc and Dolby certified speakers, keeping up to date with the latest movies and games is convenient as well.
