Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z review

Lenovo has released its first all-in-one PC. We review the Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z to see if it's any good as a business PC.

More of a concern is the slight graininess in the image that we detected and close inspection revealed an oily mottled effect on the display, noticeable mostly on white backgrounds such as when running Microsoft Word. There's also colour shift when you move off axis from the centre so it's not ideal for sharing information.

When it comes to vertical viewing, the whole PC can at least be placed at the correct angle thanks to the sturdy metal stand at the back. At the sides of the machine there are two buttons for adjusting the brightness press the lower one first and then use both to set the brightness. We needed to turn this down to make it comfortable for use in the office so found no issues there. Overall, it's by no means a disaster of a display, but it's certainly not first rate.

The stark black bezel surrounding the display contains a web cam at the top, with an integrated microphone just next to this, so it's very convenient for video conferencing. However, it's not the most detailed or smoothest picture we've ever seen from a webcam, appearing grainy and slightly jerky. Use in good light and don't move your head too much is our advice.
