Super widescreen 29-inch display joins Lenovo's new AIO desktop range

Lenovo this week revealed four new additions to its all-in-one (AIO) desktop line-up.

Led by the super-widescreen B750 — the world's first 29-inch 21:0 display — the new devices aim to bring more range to the AIO market.

"AIO desktops have become the first-choice option for many consumers seeking a home PC with power and flexibility," Jun Ouyang, vice president and general manager of Lenovo's desktop business unit, said in a statement.

One of those is the A530, a space-saver desktop with a slim, adjustable screen for use as a traditional PC or a flat, touch-screen device. The 23-inch, 1,920-by-1,080 full HD screen is encased in an all-aluminium chassis, and powered by a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor.

Buyers can choose up to 8GB DDR3 memory, up to 1TB HDD, or 1TB SSHD storage, plus integrated 8GB SSD cache, and take advantage of the machine's integrated Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 6-in-1 card reader, and HDMI ports.

Meanwhile, the B-series devices include the 29-inch B750 — with frameless display and a JBL 2.1 speaker system with built-in 20W subwoofer and Dolby Home Theatre — joined by the 23-inch B550 (pictured) and 21.5-inch B350.

The B550 and B350 sport full HD widescreen displays, as well as integrated stereo sound and Dolby certification; the B550 gets a boost from Dolby Home Theatre audio performance.

Expandable for better gameplay and movie watching, both computers run up to fourth-gen Intel Core i7 processors, and come with 16GB DDR3L memory, and up to 2TB HDD storage or SSHD hybrid storage, as well as integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, optical drives, and HDMI connectors.

"Whether as a home entertainment centre, a desktop for productivity or a gaming and multimedia device, we believe an AIO should adapt to our customers' needs quickly and smoothly and offer them a level of performance on part with a traditional desktop," Ouyang said.

All of the B-series devices are available on Lenovo.com; the $1,199 (£740) B750 will also hit retail stores in January, while the $799 (£492) B550 is expected on shelves this month. Lenovo has not revealed a price for its B530.
