My favorite feature is: "Requires about a third the space of a standard desktop." I live in a dorm room and desk-space is at a premium . The "19" displays with desk, table or wall mounting options" is also a valuable asset.

"VESA mount and three mounting options: stand, desk arm and wall (all optional and sold separately)" This sounds kind of interesting. Add a wireless remote, mount the thing on the wall and you have a mini entertainment unit.

My favorite feature is the cable management, since few companies put any thought into that. The only ones that did were Apple, and they managed to put a huge markup on their computers, and they suck.

I want a PC that does some aesthetic things with their case design and layout like Apple does, without buying an Apple because I actually want to be productive rather than look at a pretty piece of useless junk on my desk.

'"Engineered to last Lenovo quality assurance tests show ThinkCentre has the lowest failure rates to date. A70z all-in-one PCs include the same rigid performance and reliability specifications as any other ThinkCentre PC. ""

I've been a loyal Lenovo buyer (and IBM before that) for years and I can say without reservation that these really are the best engineered and reliable PC's available. That may not be a true 'feature' of the A70Z, but it's enough to keep coming back to Lenovo over and over again. But on to the machine itself, being able to mount on an arm is of huge value to me. My gf's AIO came with a non-standard mount, which required us to buy an arm from the vendor directly, which overpriced. I won't mention the brand, but it is in the top 4 world wide.

That 19"W LCD with an actual 16:10 AR rather than the 16:9 that is becoming the norm.

Requires about a third the space of a standard desktop!

Definitely the space saving. LOVE that, but you know the tv tuner is a great feature also. This would be great to put in the kitchen for the wife and not take up a ton of room, she could get online for recipe's, check out news, or even turn on some tunes while cooking/cleaning, or she could use the tv tuner card to watch her favorite soaps, etc.

Would love to give this to my wife!!!

My favorite feature:

Energy-efficient design

A70z requires a third of the space as standard PCs, run quieter, cooler and consume less energy. They also require less packaging and reduce impact on the environment from manufacturing, to your desk and post-lifecycle.

The best feature is it's space-saving form factor. That means less wires causing havok for me on my small desk at work, and possibly a gain in space! Another feature is that it's an all-in-one, and has a grip handle for carrying it around from time to time. That's a nice touch.
