When we think of an all in one desktop, we usually keep the iMac from Apple as the benchmark. Though we have seen a lot of all in one desktop solution, none of them are as elegant as the iMac. In this Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO 3 (F0EW005TUS) review, we talk about this new desktop from Lenovo and explain how it compares to some of the best all in one desktop computers.
This Lenovo F0EW005TUS desktop is a beautiful looking desktop computer that comes with a lot of good hardware in it. This desktop is mainly aimed at mid-range uses as it comes with a mid-range processor that is complemented by mid-range specifications. This might be of use to heavy users as a secondary computer and is a great fit for light users as well. Let’s dive into this full review to see if this new desktop computer is worth the price tag.
The Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO 3 (F0EW005TUS) is a modern-looking desktop that comes at an affordable price. The first impression of the device is very good, thanks to the tubular stand and the contemporary display design. The device comes in a nice shade of grey that adds a lot of character to this desktop. You can find the Lenovo branding at the back and it doesn’t cause any interruption on the front.
In terms of aesthetics, this AIO desktop gets a 10 out of 10. For a computer at this price point, the design is usually not a unique selling point. This desktop computer changes that and brings quality design at an affordable price.
The stand is made of aluminum and comes with a pretty sturdy hold. The glossy black finish on the stand gives this display a nice, finished look. You can tilt the computer forward and backward to a certain degree. Other than that, you cannot do anything else with the stand which is a bit disappointing.
All the ports for connectivity are available on the back face of this desktop. You get 4 USB ports of which only two are USB 3.1 ports. The other two are USB 2.0 ports and are okay for data transfer. There is an HDMI port that would come in handy to connect this display desktop to a projector or other devices. You also get a media card reader along with an audio jack.
There is also an ethernet port that allows you to connect to the internet with the help of an ethernet cable. On the desktop also comes with Wi-Fi 5 built-in which gives you access to high-speed internet without using the ethernet port. You also get Bluetooth connectivity built-in which is quite handy.
Display and Audio
The display we have here is a 24” LED-backlit display that comes with full HD resolution. This display is a widescreen one and comes with a screen to body ratio of 90% which is something we see only in premium computers. The bezels on the sides are just 9.5mm in thickness and are one of the main reasons for achieving the screen to body ratio.
The picture quality of this display is pretty good and is perfect for media consumption, games, and everyday activities. The native resolution and aspect ratio of this display comes in handy to run multiple windows side-by-side without making things look too small.
The display comes with a maximum brightness of 350 nits which is pretty good because you are going to be using this indoors in brightly lit rooms. For a desktop computer at this price point, this maximum brightness is very new and refreshing.
The desktop computer comes with built-in speakers. The speakers are not amazing by any means but can give you a decent sound if you don’t have a speaker by your side. If you are serious about sound quality, then you should get yourself a good speaker set up.
The WebCam can be found on the top bezel and it comes for the privacy shutter which is the need of the hour. The WebCam quality is decent and enables you to make video calls, both professional and personal. The microphone does a pretty good job of picking up your voice and delivers it cleanly.
The processor that powers this Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO 3 (F0EW005TUS) is an AMD Ryzen 3 4300U processor. This is a mid-range processor that comes with four physical cores and four threads. The processor has a base clock frequency of 2.7 GHz and can go up to a maximum clock frequency of 3.7 GHz which is a lot of power considering the price point of this device.
The processor does a neat job when it comes to running your everyday applications. Right from starting the device to launching your frequently used applications, this processor runs like a hot knife through butter. The good news here is that you will be able to run even some heavy applications as this processor has the power to do that.
The processor is well complemented by the memory department on this desktop. We get 8 GB of RAM that is perfect for multitasking in a mid-range desktop. With this memory, you will be able to multitask without any hiccups. Though there is an option to upgrade this memory, it is not easy for the user to do it and you may have to take it to the service center to get it done which is cumbersome.
For storage, we have a 256 GB solid-state drive. This solid-state drive does a pretty good job when it comes to reading and writing files. In terms of speed, this SSD is at least 12 times faster than your average mechanical hard drive. As a result, this SSD can launch Windows operating system in a few seconds and can also open applications at a very fast pace.
The Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO 3 (F0EW005TUS) desktop does not come with a dedicated graphics card. This is not a gaming device and Expecting a discrete graphics card is not fair to the price of this computer. Having said that, the integrated graphics card allows you to play light and certain mid-range games without any issues. If you want to play hardcore games, then this may not be the right computer for you.
