Lenovo announces IdeaCentre A300

Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 takes the crown for world's thinnest all-in-one PC

With a screen depth of 18.5mm, the svelte Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 has claimed the title of the world's thinnest All-in-One PC. It sports a 21.5-inch, 1920-by-1080 resolution widescreen display, putting the final dimensions at 524 by 396 by 207mm.

Weighing in at 9.5kg, it also sports a rather striking design, setting it apart from its older (and comparatively thicker) sibling, the Lenovo IdeaCentre A600.

Despite the meager footprint Lenovo managed to pack in quite a few features, including a Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB of DDR3-1066 MHz Ram, and up to 500 GB of hard drive space. Intel X4500HD integrated graphics will drive the display, so don't expect to do much gaming.

Connectivity options include 4 USB ports, a multi-format card reader, a FireWire port, and HDMI in and out ports. You'll also find a webcam, integrated 802.11n WiFi and a wireless Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, for minimal cable clutter.

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 All-in-One will be available in February, starting at US$600 — but expect to pay a bit more if you spring for the roomier hard drive, faster processor, and optional extras like the integrated TV tuner, or an external optical drive.

While it certainly looks great, we'll have to wait to see how it stacks up against the rest of our All-in-One PC lineup.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
