This one sits at the budget end of the spectrum, but it's really a good deal for what is on offer here.
The PC size is significantly less than a normal desktop, so it's a good solution if you are looking for a space saving PC and could easily fit in other areas of the house not just a normal desk/monitor set up as many use.
My quick summary of good and bad points
+ Good price/performance ratio, you get a respectable performing computer for a modest outlay
+ Compact size makes it an easy fit in various locations (one friend has one in his kitchen)
+ Very attractive looking, the black and "gun metal" silver/grey makes this quite a nice looking case (minor point but it never hurts)
+ Good overall spec and performance for a pc in this price range, dual core CPU, 4GB ram is more than enough, DVD burner.
+ 1TB Hard drive offers lots of storage capacity
+ Low power consumption and it's fairly quiet in use
+ Good connectivity, 2 front USB ports, SD card reader, HDMI and VGA monitor outputs, 4 x USB 2 at the case rear + 2x USB 3.0, support for up to 5.1 sound and front headphone/mic input sockets.
+ Supplied keyboard and mouse are above average quality (they are wired though)
- Somewhat limited potential for expansion, 2 DIMM slots provide potential memory upgrades, there isn't room for another hard drive though I suspect few will need this.
- Low form factor card slots on the back, it is possible to fit a dedicated graphics card (some have half height brackets included) I doubt many will for the intended use of this PC, and the power supply is 180w (on the unit I looked at)
- Would prefer a front USB 3.0 port
Day to day performance was good with the Intel Pentium G3220 2.6GHz, this dual core CPU whilst at the lower range of CPU's is more than enough performance for most home users. The on-board graphics can play back HD video without any stuttering, even some light gaming is possible.
Modern CPU's are quite a lot faster than the older ones, and more power efficient. If you are updating from an older desktop (single or dual core) you will notice the improvement in speed.
Lenovo have done a nice job on the H530s series (quite a few models to pick from) this is the best value offering they have so far and I think it's ideal for most users who want a decent computer at a fair price. Great for an office or general pc. If you are using it as a family pc and want more "serious" gaming performance, then go for the AMD A8 6500 3.5GHz option which costs a bit more, but will offer stronger performance here.
Win 8.1 is an improvement on the original version, it's open to debate how you get on with this. You can now boot to the desktop (rather than Metro) and the start menu whilst it's not as good as it could be, does allow you to at least shut the pc down without a hunt!. It does take a while to get used to Win 8 but it's very subjective taste wise.
For most users this is very nice small desktop that makes an ideal upgrade from an older pc. Overall a good product and well worth considering.
