Lenovo C100 All-In-One: The 400-dollar iMac

Even though most of you are slowly getting on the laptop bandwagon, there is still a need for smart-looking desktops. As desktops go, the all-in-one format championed by Apple's iMac is hard to beat. Sure, PC afficionados will tell you that you won't be able to upgrade, but then again, do you really need to? Lenovo has just announced a new and cheap all-in-one. Too good to be true?

Lenovo's C100 all-in-one starts at $400, which is about $50 less than the IdeaCentre C300. Whereas the iMac can easily handle photoshop and video editing, the C100 is designed for email checkers and web surfers. It could be that perfect extra computer to have around. It has an 18.5-inch widescreen LCD panel and uses Intel Atom CPUs. You get a DVD burner, 4 USB sockets, 1GB of RAM, and a 160 GB hard disk.

It's not too shabby for $400 and it looks quite good. Ok, so it's not an iMac at all, but hey, it will do the job when it comes to basic computing, which is what most of us do anyway. The Atom CPU makes everything quite svelte as well. This will undoubtedly sell well during the holidays.
