Good points:
8 logical processors and 16 GB makes the system fast. USB 3.0, wireless keyboard and mouse is included which helps to open the packages and get started!!!
Can set to Turbo mode when you need more power for a short period of time.
Bad points:
1. I wish I got an option to have the RAM configured to 32GB at the time of purchase.
2. It does not come with windows 8 reinstallation cd

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Powerful main use photography but some game playing plenty memory and good graphics.
Bad points:
Known software problem causes Windows updates not to configure. Not notified of this had to search firstly MS support as it turned out would have found it in forum on Lenovo support. Either software should be removed or notification of manual upgrade required.Windows 8 takes a bit of getting used to!

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I am very happy with this product. Best value for money with high specification. Very quite. Fast boot. Excellent built in recovery utility by Lenovo. Wireless keyboard and mouse gives very good user experience. Slim & small keyboard makes it look posh. I have nothing to complain about this machine. Good option for IT / Photo video editors.
Bad points:
This machine comes with windows 8 version and not Pro edition. This is why this machine does not give option to use Hyper-V for IT users. This is not bad point about this machine but this information may help buyer who are new to windows 8.
Options: Use VMPlayer / Upgrade to Pro @ £100

Nick, Airdrie, Lanarkshire General user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Powerful Intel processor. Large Hard Drive. Very fast machine. Cooling fan is very quiet, even when the machine is running on maximum power (turbo).
Bad points:
16GB RAM has been installed as 4 x 4GB, leaving no slots free. This means that if you want to upgrade (max 32GB) you have to remove installed RAM. This is very bad planning.
The supplied wireless keyboard has a slow response and is fiddly to use. It is as compact as a notebook keyboard and unsuitable for a desktop.

Stewart, Somerset General user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Pleased. It does what I expected. It's fast to start up currently.
It's very quiet, hardly any fan noise.
Wireless keyboard is a bit small for me. I just use a wired one as it feels better and doesn't need batteries.
Bad points:
The graphics card has only VGA and HDMI connectors.No DVI or DisplayPort.
Takes a bit of time to remove the pre-installed bloatware.
The hard drive is constantly accessed, not worked out why yet.
Windows 8 philosophy on searching and also on integrating accounts is a bit constraining over Windows 7.
Blue illumination light at bottom of front (why do we need this?) keeps coming back on when it wakes up after sleeping.There's a button on the top to turn it off.
I have ordered a blu ray drive as there is not one as standard.

Manufacturer's Description

Three power settings with external switch
The IdeaCentre K430 is so powerful we put a 3-speed power control switch on it: turbo red for speed and power, auto blue for normal use, and cool green for quiet, energy-saving operations.

Twin graphics cards
Full HD and powerful discrete graphics — your choice of up to AMD CrossFireX™ and/or NVIDIA® SLI® technologies — will dazzle your eyes while 7.1 Surround Sound will immerse you in a rich audio soundscape.

Storage & Memory
With up to 32GB DDR3 memory, you can drive your PC’s performance and multi-tasking power to the limit. And with up to 2TB HDD storage you’ll have more room than ever for all of your data.

Easy, tool-less expandability
As powerful as the IdeaCentre K430 is, we’ve given you the space to soup it up even more. Expandability, easy-to-access hard drive and more ports, slots and connection options than you could ever need. There’s room for two optical disc drives, two hard drives, and all of the ports and connectors you’ll need. And expansion is a snap with the K430 desktop’s innovative tool-free design.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0
Enables up to 10 times faster file transfer, allowing for lightning-fast copying of large media files, as well as seamless connections between audio- and video-related peripherals. Backwards-compatible with USB 2.0 devices.
