Introduction

 

Lenovo, the world's fourth largest vendor of personal computers, purchased IBM's PC division in 2005 for the handsome sum of $1.75 billion, and along with it the widely recognized ThinkPad moniker. Lenovo has picked up the ball and run with Think branding, christening its business-focused PCs with some iterations of the name-ThinkServer, ThinkStation, ThinkCentre, etc. Lenovo's "Lifestyle" line of PCs use a similar naming convention, substituting "Think" for "Idea," as in IdeaPad and IdeaCentre.

 

With the A70z's integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics processor, 3D gaming is all but out of the question. But its All-in-One (AIO) form factor lends itself to installation in places where a full-size desktop wouldn't be practical, meaning it might make a good network server or computer for the spare bedroom or kitchen.

 

Let's take a look.
