    IdeaCentre A520Features

    10-Point Multitouch Display

    Interact with your A520 by using simple, intuitive gestures directly on the 23" screen. The A520 uses 10-point multitouch technology for greater accuracy and flexibility.

    Widely Adjustable Viewing Angle

    The A520'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.

    Integrated DVD Reader/Writer or Blu-ray Disc™ Drive

    Watch movies, listen to music, and burn discs with the A520's integrated DVD reader/writer or Blu-ray Disc™ drive.

    Full HD Display

    The IdeaCentre A520's 23" HD frameless display with 16:9 widescreen delivers stunning video.

    Simple Maintenance

    With OneKey® Rescue System, recovering from viruses or other technical difficulties is a snap. The IdeaCentre A520 also makes it easy to back up your system and scan for and kill viruses.


    With 802.11 b/g/n WiFi connectivity and 10/100/1000 LAN, you'll be able to connect seamlessly with your network and other devices.

    Stereo Speakers With Dolby® Home Theater® v4

    The A520's speakers deliver rich stereo sound, while Dolby Home Theater v4 provides an immersive audio experience.

    Fast Data Transfer

    Move data between the A520 and other devices quickly with USB 3.0 – it's up to 10 times faster than previous USB technologies.

    Integrated Webcam

    The A520's integrated 720p HD webcam will help you enjoy web conferences or online video chats like you're really there.
