Neowin Giveaway: Lenovo A70Z - Winner Selected


Recommended Posts

I like the fact that they mention this "A70z all-in-one PCs. Sleek, serious business tools" and the fact that they actually mean 'serious business' and it's not sarcasm, like all the other times I've read "Serious Business" on the internet. :shiftyninja:

Serious business is a feature, right?

Another day, Another entry. Today my favorite feature is the Simple cable management for crowded work spaces. I really dislike all the cords that are on the desktops. There are so many to go to everything else and they are not very great to look at.

My favorite feature is that it has a good sized 19" display, which also contains everything except the keyboard and mouse, so it takes up little desk space (1/3 of a regular desktop.)

I would have to say that since yesterdays post my favorite features have not changed. I am still fond of:

VESA mount and three mounting options: stand, desk arm and wall (all optional and sold separately)


Easy plug-and-play design for quick box-to-boot time

I couldn't pick just one. I liked both features.

My favorite feature is that the screen is 16:10. Hard to find now, I miss my 16:10 screen.

While I admit it's the space-saving feature that attracts me most (hey, I live in an apartment about the size of a shoebox!), the energy-saving aspect is very attractive as well. So my favorite feature is:

All-in-ones consume less energy and cost less to operate.
