All in I think this is a nice device for casual users & students – especially given how thin and compact it is. Gamers will want to look elsewhere but there is the option to use it as a monitor too – so you could for example plug in a PS4 or Xbox into it.

  1. Sad you can't adjust the brightness when in monitor mode. I don't know how they're dumbasses didn't think to do something about that.

  2. hey i’m having trouble with my lenovo ideacentre , unlike the one shown in the video, i have a 510 and can’t switch back and fourth from pc to monitor mode . any help

  3. This is 2124 Dirhams here in UAE, And I’m saving up to buy it. 💖
    And I’m putting a sticker on the camera because I’m scared someone is gonna watch me lol. ( im only 11 k )

  4. This is best laptop but I have one question that we have to connect the speaker ya we have speaker in this desktop only

  5. Im on a budget and the HP A4 computer that I REALLY wanted I just found out isn't compatible with Adobe Premier Pro… The specs seem to match but this is kinda out of my price range. I can get it for about $700 but im also buying a camera, lenses, lighting, camera accessories(gimball, rack etc.), iphone camera accessories and purchasing my website from wix for my business Eccentric Digital Media as well as purchasing my copyright and license for my business #eccentricdigitalmedia as well. so I'm trying to save some money. But I really need a computer that can handle adobe premier, Lightroom, After Effects, and Photoshop, and can handle exporting 4k Files occasionally but I will be exporting at 1080p for most projects. Will this computer get me by?

  6. Please can Someone answer me this?!?

    On the Lenovo ideacentre 510 can it also be used as a monitor for game console such as a ps4 please??
