Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Nice compact and easy to set up. It is taking me a while to get used to the more modern windows set up to be direct I would like an option for a new machine to be set up with an older windows version
Bad points:
I didn't know a remote control came with it until it arrived but the receiver for the remote came but no handset. I probably would never use it so I haven't bothered trying to get one but it is an indicator that you might buy and find bits missing!

Mike, General user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Huge screen, quiet fans, very fast system overall. Probably one of the best all-in-ones on the market. I upgraded from my Sony RT1SU and have been pleased overall. I also purchased a 512Gb SSD drive and swapped this for the supplied 1Tb hard drive (which I put in an enclosure and now use as an external drive). No issues opening the Lenovo and swapping the HDD for and SDD. Swivel range of the screen is excellent.
Bad points:
Firstly, you will lose one of the USB ports straight away as this is needed for the wireless dongle for the supplied keyboard and mouse. This is surprising as most all-in-ones have built in support for the supplied mouse and keyboard.

The screen has a slightly blue tinge to its white lamp, not quite as warm an iPad or other screens. I also think the refresh rate on the screen is not great - noticeable when playing games - which is a real shame as one of the reasons I bought this is because it has such a great nVidia graphics card in it.

The touchscreen is not very responsive - for example the widely publicised piano keyboard on screen is almost unusable due to the delay between pressing a key and hearing the sound.

Oh and the sound - pretty poor (as I expected). The tiny speakers in the front of the stand are essentially the same as those you find on your iPad/iPhone....so if you want to watch movies or listen to music you will need headphones or speakers.

Manufacturer's Description

A720. Multitouch. Multi-Angled. Multi-Purpose.
The IdeaCentre A720 is a rare combination of up-to-the-minute technology and contemporary style. While it boasts a large, 27" screen, the A720 All-in-One is ultra-slim and a delight to use.

But don’t take our word for it: At this year’s International Consumer Electonics Show, the A720 raked in the awards, winning Best Desktop from PCMag.com, Best All-in-One Desktop from Computer Shopper, and Best Desktop from PCWorld.

What’s more, the IdeaCentre A720 Desktop marks a dramatic advance in comfortably using an all-in-one touchscreen PC. The smartly designed display mount allows you to adjust it across a huge range — from -5 degrees to 90 degrees.

That means you can watch it in a vertical position like a PC or television, slope it gently for relaxed touchscreen use, or slide it into a fully horizontal position to play two-person touch games.

10-point multitouch technology provides a compelling user interface.
The IdeaCentre A720 is the slimmest 27" desktop on the market at the time of its release.
HD video, Dolby® Home Theater™ and stereo speakers and an optional Blu-ray Disc™ drive turn the IdeaCentre A720 into a home entertainment hub.
