Lenovo IdeaCentre B500


$650.00 Released December, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Excellent display quality--clean whites, accurate skin tones. Inbuilt speakers output surprisingly capable audio--deep bass, well articulated. Mouse and keyboard are compact yet fully featured--both feel comfortable despite their small sizes.

The Cons:Very ugly visual aesthetic--bulky and angular. Inconsistent backlight--bleeds through brightly along the bottom edge of the bezel. Limited audio expansion--only two 3.5mm stereo ports for mic/speaker connectivity.

The Lenovo IdeaCentre B500 is an ultra-affordable, all-in-one desktop PC featuring Windows 7 and designed for gaming and entertainment applications. It features an Intel Core 2 Quad processor, a 23” full HD widescreen display, and 4GB of RAM.
