Lenovo desktops K450e Core i7 PC with 16GB RAM $819, Flex 20 Core i3 mobile PC $699

The Lenovo K450e packs some impressive hardware, starting with a fourth-gen Core i7-4790 processor that will deliver premium performance, flying through your everyday needs and ably handling even more intensive tasks like multimedia design. There’s also a whopping 16GB of RAM and 2TB 72oo RPM hard drive with an 8GB SSD cache, which give you a powerful combination of ample multitasking memory, tons of long term storage, and some of the speed benefits of a solid state drive.

One of the nice things about this desktop is how easy it is to customize. It’s designed to be opened up without any tools and with easy access to all the internal parts and bays, plus plenty of room for expansion. So down the road if you need it, it’s simple to add a video card, more memory, or anything else. It features six USB ports (four USB 3.0), including some conveniently placed on the front, plus a multi-card reader and headphone jack, a DVDRW, and built-in WiFi. The K450e is bundled with a keyboard and mouse, supports 7.1 channel sound, and has three “performance” settings that affect system speed and noise.
The Flex 20 can switch between “stand” to “tablet” mode.

If portability is a bit more important to you than raw power, then check out the mobile Lenovo Flex 20. This desktop sports a unique design, with a flip-out stand that lets you choose between a setup akin to a traditional desktop, or one that’s more like a huge tablet. The 19.5-inch 1600×900 10-point touch display has enough real estate to easily share, and Lenovo has designed an “Aura” social interface to make this easy, even including a number of pre-loaded multi-user touch friendly apps. At 0.8 inches thin, 7.7 pounds, and packing an integrated battery that can last up to two hours, this is a versatile desktop you can bring anywhere.

While it’s no match for the K450e’s muscle, that’s not to say this is a desktop that lacks power. This mobile PC features specs roughly equivalent to a mainstream laptop, with a low-voltage fourth-gen Core i3-4010U processor, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive. These specs provide plenty of power for day-to-day tasks like browsing the web and watching HD videos, while also conserving a bit of battery life. On the connectivity side, there are a pair of USB 3.0 ports as well as WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, but there’s no optical drive here — a decision made in the name of portability. It’s bundled with a wireless keyboard and mouse.
