VERDICT
Recommended, but seriously flawed. There are probably better alternatives.

PROS

  • The C40 is an affordable AIO system and a good value as a secondary family PC.
  • An internal DVD drive is included with the C40, which is hard to find of late.
  • The built-in 3W speakers are surprisingly good.

CONS

  • Lenovo includes way too much bloatware in the C40.
  • As you might expect, performance on this budget AIO is budget-grade. Multimedia editing or 3D tasks will be tough on the C40.
  • The base is not height-adjustable, which might force you to buy a riser or use a stack of books to achieve better ergonomics.

The system is fast, responsive, and took less time to get from box to desktop than any computer I've owned.

In the end, the Lenovo C40 packs a pretty good overall experience, but with one major flaw. For me, that major flaw is the glossy display. It was definitely the biggest downside of the device.
