Lenovo IdeaCentre K430 Review


In a move to gain some ground in the gaming PC market, the Lenovo IdeaCentre K430 brings some serious power and performance to the table. The K430 has an Intel Core i7 CPU, a whopping 12GB of RAM, a 2TB hard drive and discrete Nvidia Graphics. There's also a unique power mode switch to regulate computing power and an option for a Blu-ray drive.

The design of the Lenovo IdeaCentre K430 definitely looks the part because of its brushed metal finish (but it's really plastic) and lighting. Under the front lip, there is a LED lighting effect that changes color based upon the power control switch (more on that later). The case looks quite stylish and most gamers will be pleased with it. The size of the K430 measures 6.9 x 16.1 x 14.2-inches (wdh) and weighs about 25-pounds.

Lenovo includes a standard set of wired USB mouse and keyboard. We found the keyboard to be quite nice actually but the mouse felt small and cheap. A nice set of wireless peripherals would have been nice, but users can always buy their own if they want them.
