    Widely Adjustable Viewing Angle

    The A540's smartly designed display mount allows you to adjust it across a huge range — from -5 degrees to 90 degrees. That means you can watch it in a vertical position like a PC or television, slope it gently for relaxed touchscreen use, or slide it into a full horizontal position to play two-person touch games.

    Stylish, Ultraslim Design

    The A540 doesn’t just work well — it looks great too. The stylish, super-slim touchscreen tapers to a mere 4mm at its thinnest point, while a full aluminum shell surrounds the A540's frameless display.

    Great for Entertainment

    The A540's Full HD (1920 x 1080) display with IPS delivers dazzling visuals and nearly 180-degree viewing angles, while JBL®-designed stereo speakers enhanced with Dolby® Home Theater® offer a rich, immersive audio experience.

    Easy File Transfer

    Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology makes it easy to wirelessly connect across other NFC-enabled devices — then easily share photos, movies, music, and documents directly by WiFi, with no additional software needed.

    Lenovo Motion Control

    Use the webcam as an input device — effortlessly flip pages, rewind/forward music, change volume, and gesture other simple commands with the flick of the hand.

    Simple Backup and Recovery

    Lenovo Rescue System makes it easy to back up and restore data and recover system files — before entering Windows.

    Watch TV on Your PC

    Choose a model with the optional integrated TV tuner to use your A540 as your television, as well as your PC.

    Very easy and quick to set up. Loads up very quickly when you switch it on, and connects instantly to wifi without waiting for it to search for networks.
    The flexible stand allows for an angled position which works well for the touch screen. USB connections are easily accessible in the side of the base.
    Bundled software largely unnecessary trial versions. Receiver for the keyboard and mouse occupies one of the usb slots.
    Description suggests it has a built in tv receiver, in fact this receiver is separate and has to be connected to one of the usb ports.

    Lenovo have taken on a mac design-which is no bad thing. It was a dream to set this machine up-I chose the free upgrade to Windows10, which was worth the 30 min wait. After that, everything is intuitive. The machine comes with a trial version of Microsoft Office, so you can start working straight away. I love the mouse and keyboard design.

    It's all pretty good
    I would like to be able to upgrade ram. I knew this when buying so wasn't a deal killer but ability to upgrade performance would be good

    Weight - portability was key for the environment we are using. Ease of setup and quality of monitor.
    Bloatware, HDMI input only, no option to upgrade to Windows 8.1 pro from Lenovo - had to go to Microsoft

    Attractive design, space saving, tilting screen, much quieter than old desktop, Windows 8.1 OK once get used to it.
    Mouse only suitable for those with small hands, too much pre-loaded software of no use to me which takes a bit of time to remove.

    Very quick to boot up
    Good quality clear screen
    Overal stylish look
    The Mouse is not comfortable or easy to use and so I may replace it. I had read this on reviews before buying and is a relatively minor bad point compared with the excellent design and performance of the rest of the PC.

    Screen is nice. Keyboard is nice.
    lack of everyday software included in deal. Microsoft partly to blame. A 30 day trial of something is worse than nothing.
    Mouse is horrible.

  • Ask an Owner

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the A540

    1. Hannah asked on
      I use an old software for designing with a roland cutter. I know it can run on windows 8, wondering if anyones downgraded from windows 10 to a lower version and if hard drives and hardware still works fully functional.tia
      1. Martin replied on
        Hi it arrived with Windows 8 and worked fine, I updated to 8.1 and then Windows 10 without any problems.

        So although I haven't downgraded I didn't have any issues. Hope this helps.
    2. Usman asked on
      Can drawing applications like Sketchbook Pro or Photoshop be used with a stylus on the touchscreen monitor? if so, which stylus? Anybody used it for this purpose?
      1. Warren replied on
        Sorry but I can't help with this one. You can use a stylus on the screen (I just use a cheap one from Amazon) so I would assume Photoshop will work fine using a stylus. I am pleased with the computer.
    3. Kevin asked on
      How do you cycle between the inputs (HDMI, PC)?
      1. Warren replied on
        No idea!! I dont use the hdmi input... Its a really good computer
    4. Paul asked on
      What do you get in the box when it is delivered?
      1. Warren replied on
        The monitor and the all in one CPU. Plus all the cables you need ie power etc. Most of it is wireless (the keyboard and mouse connect wirelessly. Just connect it and off you go!! We are still very pleased with ours after almost 1 year of owning this Lenovo. Hope this helps.
    5. Ralph asked on
      The spec states a display size of 23.8" which is in the normal way a diagonal dimension.
      This seems inconsistent with the Dimensions they give - 28.3" x 19.5" x 7.5"
      Any ideas?
      1. Peter replied on
        Visible screen diagonal is indeed 23.8". Screen width overall is 23", height 14".
        It can be used vertically or horizontally. The base measures 8" deep x 12" wide
