The Lenovo A740 is an astonishingly slim, high performance 27-inch multitouch all-in-one desktop, providing the perfect balance between design and power. With outstanding specs, innovative technology and an intuitive quad HD touch screen that boasts a 95 degree viewing angle, you can use this desktop in perfect comfort.
Power through all your computing tasks with the lightning fast, fourth generation Intel Core i7 processor and 8GB RAM. Intel’s i7 processors are designed to deliver high speed performance, even when tackling demanding programs.

Get in the action and experience breathtaking 3D graphics in games and smooth image processing when editing photos and HD videos thanks to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX850A graphics card with 2GB dedicated memory.

The A740 looks incredible. The super slim touch screen tapers to just less than 4mm at its thinnest, while a full aluminium shell add style to the frameless display. The display can be adjusted between -5 and 90 degrees letting you use it vertically like a PC or television, sloped gently for easy touch screen use or full horizontal for two person touch screen gaming.
The Quad HD screen displays a resolution of 2160 × 1440 pixels, making it ideal for photo and video editing with incredible detail.

Use the incredible screen on the A740 as a TV with the integrated TV tuner, which allows you to plug in an aerial and receive digital television signals.
The A740 gets even better for entertainment with the addition of two 5W stereo speakers. Designed by JBL and enriched by Dolby Home Theatre technology, the A740 offers an immersive audio experience.

With a solid state hybrid drive, you get the best of huge capacity and high speed access. Store all your photos, video, music and more on the large 1TB hard drive, with plenty of room for multiple users to store data for convenient access. The 8GB flash portion of the SSHD automatically stores your most accessed data, such as system start up information, to ensure that load times for your most important files and programs is rapid.

With a huge amount of high speed connections, the A740 is primed for data transfer. It features four superfast USB 3.0 ports, Bluetooth 4.0 and one touch NFC support for quick data transfer, not to mention built-in Wi-Fi with Intel WiDi compatibility for networking and streaming your display to a WiDi compatible TV.

Incredibly innovative software from Lenovo make things even better. Lenovo Motion Control lets you use the webcam as an input device, letting you flip pages, rewind/forward music, change volume, and gesture other simple commands with the flick of the hand.

Lenovo Rescue System makes it easy to back up and restore data and recover system files before entering Windows, just in case the worst happens.
