2.0 out of 5 stars Overall V Good
I like the touch screen. It's a phenomenal advance on computing interface. Soon everyone will have one. The A530 is good. Sturdy. But loses a star because: i. The mouse is v poor quality; ii. Keyboard is good (the buttons respond well) but the plastic chrome will soon wear out; iii. It's a shame you cant have this with the option of Windows 8.1 Pro. iv. The i5 is a bit...

This review is from: Lenovo A530 23-inch Multitouch All-In-One Desktop - Silver (Intel Core i5 4200M 2.5GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, DVDRW, Wi-Fi, BT, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8.1) (Personal Computers)
I like the touch screen. It's a phenomenal advance on computing interface. Soon everyone will have one. The A530 is good. Sturdy. But loses a star because: i. The mouse is v poor quality; ii. Keyboard is good (the buttons respond well) but the plastic chrome will soon wear out; iii. It's a shame you cant have this with the option of Windows 8.1 Pro. iv. The i5 is a bit slow (me being used to instant computing).

Update 31st May 2014.
Painfully slow computer with a below average wi-fi card.

2.0 out of 5 stars Be careful...., 8 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lenovo A530 23-inch Multitouch All-In-One Desktop - Silver (Intel Core i5 4200M 2.5GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, DVDRW, Wi-Fi, BT, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8.1) (Personal Computers)
A slow irksome machine, which should be quite nippy, I'm hoping the abysmal performance is down to Windows 8.1 and not the machine itself.

Otherwise a well presented machine that was promptly delivered.

It would have been nice to have had the choice of an alternate OS

Do not buy this unless you can afford to throw away or sell the Windows licence and replace it with something that actually works, in a tolerable manner [older version of Windows or Linux]

This machine is a joy to use, fast, light responsive, after you have taken Windows 8.1 off it

I dual boot, as some of my applications wont port to Linux and thus 2 or 3 times a week, I realise how slow & awkward the Windows interface is.

If Windows is your only software option, DONT buy this machine

3.0 out of 5 stars Keyboard and mouse not working, 13 Mar. 2014

I was so looking forward to delivery of my new pc and when it came I couldnt use the keyboard and mouse. It looks like the wifi card is missing. Luckily I had my old one so have set that up with it and now it is working fine. The other gripe I have is the price has dropped almost £100 in a couple of days of me ordering it!
