Lenovo IdeaPad U460 laptop giveaway contest

How would you like a brand new computer to start this year?

I am giving away a Lenovo IdeaPad U460 laptop to one lucky Sparklette reader, courtesy of Lenovo. All you have to do is one very simple task and rally for votes!

But for now, I will first write a little about another Lenovo computer, the all-in-one desktop IdeaCentre B310. The company has provided Sparklette with a review set and I have been happily using it for the past two weeks.

Lenovo IdeaCentre B310

What I love most about the B310 is its space-saving and stylish look, which combines the monitor and CPU into the same case. As a web designer and full-time blogger, I need a computer that is powerful enough for me to complete my tasks quickly. With its speedy Intel Core i5-650 3.2GHz processor and 4GB DDR3 DRAM, my productivity has improved dramatically. Running Photoshop, processing videos, and playing graphic-intensive games like The Sims 3 is a breeze as everything runs so quickly and smoothly.

Plus, looking at the 21.5 inch full HD display is just pure joy.

Some minor gripes: The large screen also comes with multi-touch capabilities. While that is a fun feature to have, it isn’t the most conducive or ergonomic way of using a touchscreen due to its close-to-perpendicular position on a table.

The rarely used Function key would fit better next to the space bar instead of its present bottom-left position on the keyboard. With the “Fn” key in the way, it is tiring to hold both the Shift and Ctrl keys at the same time for frequently used functions, especially within Photoshop.
