Lenovo C260: This inexpensive all-in-one PC performs more like a tablet

Yardena Arar | Aug. 21, 2014
The best all-in-one PCs bundle solid desktop features in a sleek display--no unsightly tower required. But because they include a display, they often cost a lot more than traditional desktops, a problem Lenovo seeks to address with its C260 all-in-one, a 19.5-incher which goes for $480 (Amazon was selling this model for $450 as of this writing).

There are other irritants as well: Only one of the C260's four USB ports supports USB 3.0 — the others handle only slower USB 2.2 connections. And unless you pay extra to upgrade to a wireless keyboard and mouse, two of those four ports will be occupied by the wired peripherals that come with the unit.

The C260's audio sounded OK, and its webcam worked fine for Skype calls. But multitaskers, people who depend on Wi-Fi for streaming media, and anyone seeking tools for any computationally intensive work should seek a more powerful system.
