Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 3011
High-resolution 21.5-inch LCD; semiuseful facial recognition software; replaceable memory, hard drive, and optical drive.
Faster large-screen all-in-one available from Averatec for the same price; clunky design can pinch fingers.
The heart of Lenovo's IdeaCentre A600 is in the right place, offering a 21.5-inch LCD-based all-in-one for less than $800. But a faster competitor and a careless design turns us off from this particular A600 configuration. You might consider a different A600 build if you can live with the design, but we can't recommend the $749 version.
