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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
