As many of the readers of Official RTV will probably know, my reviews are more tailored towards PC hardware and PC gaming peripherals, but I had the opportunity to demo the Lenovo B750 all-in-one PC and I was very much so surprised by how much I enjoyed this product.
The Lenovo B750 breaks the mold of the standard all-in-one PC. The massive 29-inch diagonally measured screen is huge and is really what makes the product stand out from the other all-in-one. It’s very impressive when watching movies, surfing the web, or even playing video games. The giant IPS display has a native resolution of 2,560×1,080, which is the same vertical resolution as a standard 1080p screen but a horizontal resolution 1.3 times as wide as 1,920. Why would you want that?
The 21:9 display is driven by a NVidia GTX 760 graphics card, which now isn’t the best when it comes to gaming, but it still gets the job done. I would have rather seen a more up to date 800 series mobile card in the device, but the B750 isn’t really designed for your average gamer.
The audio from the B750 was impressive as far as a built in system goes. The 2.1 speakers got the job done and the rear firing subwoofer in the back of the chassis helped deliver that extra punch. If you are serious about your audio experience I would still recommend external speakers.
The B750 has a plethora of connections. The B750 gives a total of six USB ports, although one is needed for the included keyboard/mouse dongle, as well as both HDMI-in and HDMI-out connections. The former is interesting in case you want to hook up an external source — a tablet, laptop, game console, or other device — and just use the B750’s display.
With a 3.4GHz Intel Core-i7 4770 CPU, the B750 is a very powerful mainstream/premium desktop. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 graphics card in the system is good for mainstream gaming but a few stops short of the top of the line (and part of last year’s 700-series of cards from Nvidia).
The Lenovo B750 is not for everyone. But if you’re looking to skip the multiple monitor setup while still maximizing screen real estate, it’s the way to go. With a high-end CPU, a big 2TB hard drive, a decent GPU, and a massive extra-wide display all for $1,449, it’s a great deal if you’re looking for a desktop that doesn’t break the bank.
