MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Lenovo announced on Tuesday (August 9) the latest addition to its wide range of all-in-one (AIO) PCs with the IdeaCentre B320 which delivers a compact performance complete with a Full HD display supporting multi-touch technology and intelligent features like Hardware TV that turns the display into a regular HD TV at the click of a button, making home computing all the more entertaining and intuitive.
According to leading global market research and consulting firm, DisplaySearch, all-in-one PCs have been around for years but now they are becoming a market of their own with each consecutive generation of AIOs. Based on the firm’s recent data, all-in-one computers’ worldwide sale grew by 57% from 2008 to 2009. DisplaySearch forecasts that AIO PCs will jump from the 6.95 million units sold in 2010 to 12.79 million in 2015. And with the ability of brands such as Lenovo to reach a wide variety of design aesthetics and price points to draw the interest of consumers and commercial customers, the touch-enabled and the standard AIO PCs growth forecast shows no sign of slowing down.
Vicky Agorrilla, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines said: “We observe that Filipinos are starting to appreciate the transformation of the computer into a media center. As the computer becomes a mainstay of the home, the Lenovo IdeaCentre B320 is an excellent addition to the Lenovo range of consumer all-in-ones as an easy to use and entertaining option. Featuring intelligent functions developed with the user in mind, such as Lenovo NaturalTouch panel, Lenovo High-Sense webcam and OneKeyTV®, it is no surprise Lenovo AIOs have been increasing in popularity as they can be used by the whole family whatever their computing needs.”
At the click of a button the IdeaCentre B320 turns the display into an HD TV with Hardware TV (HWTV) using OneKeyTV®. With HWTV, users need not start up the PC to watch television and can easily switch between computer and TV modes, or even enjoy both at the same time with the picture-in-picture function. Complemented with integrated stereo speakers, the IdeaCentre B320 provides users with a top-quality entertainment experience, bringing music, movies, and games to life.
Adding to its fun features, the IdeaCentre B320 comes with the Lenovo High-Sense webcam with YouCam software, allowing friends to see you more clearly on video chats. It also includes performance graphics and has intelligent features like the optional Lenovo NaturalTouch Panel. So whatever your idea of fun is, the IdeaCentre B320 will help bring it alive.
The IdeaCentre B320 is backed up with powerful 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i5 processors and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0. It also features Lenovo Enhanced Experience 2.0 for Windows® 7 with RapidBoot technology – allowing you to enjoy the best multimedia experience with up to 20% faster boot up time.
Space Saving Connectivity
The IdeaCentre B320 offers advanced cable management to avoid cluttering your valuable home space while the VESA mount allows flexible fitting anywhere around the home. Connect to devices through its optional Wireless Bluetooth® keyboard and mouse and surf the web easier with its integrated high-speed 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi.
The IdeaCentre B320 protects users through the Lenovo Dynamic Brightness System which automatically adjusts screen brightness based on ambient light conditions. Also preinstalled on the IdeaCentre B320 is Lenovo’s Eye Distance System that alerts users if they approach the screen too closely. Lastly, Lenovo’s Rescue System 3.0 is another crucial tool for consumers today as it offers a painless way to backup and recover data. At the touch of a button, users can restore their Windows OS and entire hard disk drive to factory settings and recover their data.
