This review is from: Lenovo Desktop PC ThinkCentre Edge 3493GPU Intel Core i3 3220 (3.30GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB HDD Windows7 Professional 64 preinstalled through downgrade rights in Windows 8 Pro 64-bit
Pros: I am an IT Consultant and I purchased 4 of these for a clients office back in April, 2013. From the moment I began configuring them and getting used to the feel of the computer, I knew I had made the right decision.
This is the perfect business machine for anyone looking for reliable computers for the office. They are great home computers as well, although you can probably find something more reasonably priced for the home setting. What I mean by that is, computers advertised as "business computers" tend to have more of a premium (well worth it in my opinion), but for a home setting you have a wide array of options to choose from with varying prices.
I purchased these computers specifically because of Lenovo's amazing track record with their Think series computers. In all my years as a computer tech before I started my consulting firm, I have rarely ever seen a Lenovo come in for a repair (those that did were for extreme misuse by the user). And they were well worth it, as I have not had a single hiccup with these machines physically thus far.
Cons: The first inconvenience is the price, which I mentioned above. "Then why did you purchase them you ask?" Because of Lenovo's track record, which I mentioned above as well. You see...for me it is well worth the premium as I am very familiar with the Lenovo brand and that is why I purchased these computers regardless of the price. You may not feel the same as I do and so I felt it was my duty to mention about the price.
The second inconvenience is one that almost everyone is familiar with regardless of what brand computer you purchase...Bloatware. I hate it when a brand name computer is stuffed with software that is pushing you to buy other services and products. Admittedly, this Lenovo model had less bloatware than the usual computers I've seen and removing bloatware is an easy process, but nonetheless it had it and I don't like it. Hopefully the High Council of Computer Awesomes are paying attention somewhere up there...
Other Thoughts: In conclusion, the 4 stars is simply because of the 2 Cons I listed above.
I don't believe anything out there is "perfect" just that they should constantly be improved towards their idea of "perfect" and so I rarely give anything 5 stars. Deal with it.
