The Lenovo IdeaCentre B500-08871FU is an all-in-one desktop computer intended to be both a standard computer and a high performance gaming system. Unlike traditional desktop computers that use a seperate tower case to house the computer's components in addition to a monitor, all-in-one desktops include everything within the the monitor itself in a complete, smaller desktop package.

The IdeaCentre B500-08871FU utilizes higher than average components to provide the second highest multimedia and gaming performance in Lenovo's IdeaCentre B series. The system's GPU is an NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M and works in conjunction with a Intel Pentium Dual-Core 2.70Ghz, and 2 GB of DDR3 SDRAM, to provide enough computer power to run almost any game available when the system was released; this is a wider capability than most products in this price range. The desktop has a 23 inch widescreen display that fully supports HD resolutions.
