Intel Core Sandy Bridge i3-3220 3.30 GHz processor with 4GB PC3-12800 DDR3 Memory- RAM that allows most applications to run efficiently. You will be fine with most programs and applications, multitasking will be easy- we opened 25 tabs on the browser, ran a movie, played a song and turned on Skype video chat and there was no freezing or lagging.

•: Lenovo IdeaCentre B540 comes with a big 1 TB 7200 rpm SATA Hard Drive that will give you an ample storage space to store all data, software and multimedia. 7200 RPM spin rate of hard drive means it is rather fast.

Impressive clear and bright picture on its 'durable and solid' 23-Inch HD Touch Screen that is capable of HD video with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and the integrated Intel HD Graphics and decent viewing angles, but not very suitable for 3D graphics, which you probably wouldn't expect at this price.

Lenovo's touch screen is a 10-point multitouch and offers a very accurate 'Projected Capacitive Touch Technology': It is very easy to navigate between programs. Touch screen and Windows 8 are great together, you will enjoy it heaps.

Dolby sound is really good with Intel HD Audio and built-in stereo speakers.

Pre-installed Windows 8 operating system, which is actually better than previous Windows versions once you get the hang of it.

Connectivity: 802.11bgn Wireless, Gigabit Ethernet, 4 x USB 2.0, 2 x USB 3.0, DVD+/-RW Dual Layer burner for playback and recording of CD or DVD media, Bluetooth, HDMI, Media Card Reader, 1.3 Megapixel Webcam.

Very nice design- black, sexy and sleek all in one with brushed aluminium.

22 pounds- well it is an all-in-one desktop.

16.20 x 22.70 x 4.30 inches.

Conclusion: Lenovo IdeaCentre B540 23-Inch comes with great features, looks beautiful and saves on space in your room. You can watch movies on it, browse the web, check emails, use Excel and Word, prepare college assignments- do most tasks easily and all at the same time without any lags or freezing. If you are looking for an all-in-one desktop, it is not to be missed at this price.
