Lenovo IdeaCentre B305
Compact, sleek design, Multitouch 1080p display, HDTV tuner, Good performance
Compact all-in-one. Discrete 3D graphics. Multi-touch screen. 1080p HD panel. HDTV tuner. Wall mount.
Low-end gaming capability and strong HD video playback thanks to discrete graphics card.
More than capable, with eyebrowarching performance. Sophisticated design and a full passel of features. Even includes the TV remote.
Good value. Fast screen. Quiet
No HDMI ports, No wireless keyboard included, Poor speakers
Uses IR dongle for remote. Office 2007 Trial. No Blu-ray. Wireless keyboard and mouse optional. No HD inputs aside from Tuner. Tinny speakers.
No Blu-ray or HDMI; advantages of the quad-core CPU won’t be felt by mainstream users; bundled keyboard is poor
Underfeatured for its price; slow general performance; no HDMI input.
Touchscreen tech has taken its toll on screen brightness. No real touchscreen features built in. Concerns about tipping over (forward).
Small screen. Blocky design. Poor keyboard and mouse
