Lenovo 20-inch C225 All-in-One Is Based on an AMD APU

One would think that 6 GB of RAM and 1 TB HDDs aren't exactly entry-level market material, but Lenovo seems to disagree and showed it through the C225 all-in-one. 

Two versions of this All-in-One personal computer are available for customers to choose from.

One has 4 GB of DDR3 RAM (random access memory), a capacity that is pretty much standard at this point, as well as a hard disk drive of 500 GB.

Already the entry-level parameters are skimmed, but they are exceeded completely by the other version of the system, with 6 GB RAM and a HDD of 1 TB.

In that order, they cost $499 and $699, which means 361 Euro and 506 Euro, respectively.

The means that Lenovo used to keep the AiO still part of the low-end market were the size and the processing platform.

The system measures 18.5 inches in diagonal, while the hardware revolves around, so to speak, the AMD E-450 APU (accelerated processing unit).

With two cores at 1.6 GHz and the AMD Radeon 6310 graphics, the chip has an HD screen to show off on (resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels).

Also, Lenovo threw in a pair of 3W speakers, a DVD writer, a 0.3 megapixel webcam, 02.11 b/g/n WiFi, a 6-in-1 card reader and USB (both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0).

Both AiOs are already up for order through the company's official website (go here for the offers). They are loaded with the Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Operating System, 64-bit.

This is the latest computer to use AMD's Fusion platform, the chip collection that enabled the company's slight share increase on the CPU market.

APUs will continue to be primary weapon in the Sunnyvale, California-based company revenue-gaining tactics, at least until Bulldozer goes through enough of a revision to actually put on a good show, repeated overclocking record breaking or no.
