    Review of the Best All-In-One PC - Lenovo IdeaCentre A600

    All-in-one desktop computers provide PC users with a single stop solution which is a complete system without the need for a separate case and a monitor. If you are looking for this type of computer then Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 is a good option to consider. Its price is around $750 and it comes with a 21.5 inch display which is quite large and nice looking too. Processor is a Pentium Dual-Core laptop processor but its memory is DDR3 unlike many other desktop PCs. Also it has a DVD drive in a place somewhat confusing to some desktop PC users.
