based on the following sites

PROS

  • The screen offers 10-point touch, a brilliant 1080p display, and wide viewing angles.
  • Strong hardware makes for a speedy system. A hybrid hard drive, 12GB of memory, Intel Core i7 CPU, and dedicated NVIDIA graphics are all available.
  • Lenovo includes an Intel RealSense camera, allowing you to log in with your face on Windows 10.

CONS

  • The more powerful hardware configuration costs extra.
  • Lenovo includes an unusual amount of bloatware, so you'll need to spend time uninstalling that. Yuck.
  • The PC includes a wired keyboard and mouse. You'll probably want wireless peripherals with such a sleek all-in-one PC.
Lenovo's B50 all-in-one PC has a 23.8-inch touch screen and is a midrange PC in both price and hardware. Lenovo positions this model as ideal for entertainment with its large 1080p display, better speaker technology than typical all-in-ones, and a DVD drive. Upgrade to Windows 10 and then log in with your face using the Intel RealSense camera.

Videos played smoothly on the display, and the system's built-in speakers were clear when we played 1080p movie trailers. It's loud enough so that a few people on a couch 5 to 8 feet away shouldn't have any problem hearing dialog and musical cues.

Our only complaints are the amount of bloatware Lenovo added to the system and the cheap, wired keyboard and mouse it bundles. Still, both of these demerits are easily remedied. It's annoying to purchase a new computer and immediately set aside time to root out unwanted software, but it shouldn't take you more than half an hour to do so. And a wireless keyboard and mouse won't set you back too much.

If you're looking for a space-saving alternative to a desktop at a reasonable price that won't just be used as a work station, then the B50-35 lives up to its billing as an entertainment centre despite some shortcomings on peripherals and graphics power.

While the B50 won't replace your gaming rig, it can handle any mainstream title that doesn't require top-of-the-line graphics cards. World of Warcraft ran at a crisp 52 frames per second at 1080p resolution with graphics set to auto, and remained at a playable 30 fps when we kicked the quality to Ultra.

The star of the show, though, is the 23.8-inch touchscreen. Of the three all-in-ones that Lenovo makes, the B Series is the only one with touch capability, and depending on your preferences it’s either a needless frill or an exciting addition. No matter your feelings on the touch aspect though, the monitor produces lush color with excellent sharpness and detail whether you’re playing a first-person shooter or just kicking back and soaking up a movie.
