On the occasion of Cyber Monday 2021, Lenovo has got a couple of great deals on its IdeaCentre All-in-One (AIO) PCs.
These AIOs are great for someone who doesn't want the hassle of dealing with a desktop setup but also wants a larger screen compared to what a similarly priced laptop offers, and in these days of working from home and online classes, AIOs seem to be in high demand.
Both of the AIOs, one from Intel and the other from AMD, come with Microsoft's latest Windows 11 OS installed. Interestingly, both these AIOs are cheaper than their Windows 10 counterparts. The systems are pretty similar except for a few key hardware specs like the size, as the Intel PC has a 21.5" screen while the AMD one is a 23.8" display.
Also, the AMD one is called the IdeaCentre AIO 3 and comes with a 6 core/12 thread Ryzen 5 5500U mobile APU, and the Intel variant is called IdeaCentre AIO 3i and packs a 2 core/4 thread Core i3-1115G4 Tiger Lake mobile CPU.
In terms of performance, the AMD Ryzen 5 5500U AIO is much better than the Intel one since the CPU and GPU combo on the 5500U is far more potent overall. The AMD AIO also packs twice the storage with a 512GB M.2 SSD and twice the memory at 16GB compared to the Intel's 8GB. Both of them however feature the same DDR4-3200 speed RAM.
The rest of the specifications of the two AIOs are the same across the two models. They are:
- FHD (1920x1080) IPS 250 nits screen
AC Adapter: 90W 88% efficient
Networking: Integrated 100/1000M
WiFi: 802.11AX/AC (2x2)
Two USB 2.0, two USB 3.2 Gen 2
Headphone/ mic ports
Keyboard and Mouse
As stated above, the AMD Ryzen 5 5500U AIO does perform better and also comes with double the RAM and storage and a bigger screen. The extra features and performance however does cost more as the Ryzen PC is 13.2% more expensive, though they can be well worth to you.
